About this Opportunity

An Exciting Opportunity to Join an Outstanding Team!

We are currently looking for more invigilators to help oversea our exams. Working as a team, invigilators contribute to ensuring a calm environment for the exams, giving candidates confidence in the process. They ensure the right candidates are in the right place and give out vital information such as start and finish times of exams, ensuring all learners have the correct materials and information for the exam and they also help prevent malpractice.

It is important that exams are conducted in the correct way and in accordance with strict JCQ regulations. Invigilators are therefore crucial to this process and need to be reliable, punctual, flexible, meticulous, vigilant and able to relate to learners in a high-pressure environment.

This is a part time role on a casual basis but one that can make a real difference.

This is a fantastic opportunity for an ambitious candidate to join our dynamic and welcoming team at the forefront of the sector, and to make a real difference to the education and aspirations of the young people in the local community.  New College Pontefract delivers primarily A Level provision, alongside a range of Applied General qualifications and GCSE Maths.

New College is an outstanding place to work and study, regularly near the top of UK sixth form college results tables and awarded outstanding in all areas by Ofsted in 2023.  The personal development of students is as important to the college as their academic journey and every member of staff plays their part to make this happen. With over 2500 students, New College Pontefract is the founding member of the New Collaborative Learning Trust (NCLT).

NCLT has a dynamic, positive and supportive culture for staff and students, with an enviable reputation for staff career progression and development. You will join a focused and driven team, committed to providing the highest standards of education and service.

The Trust currently comprises of three 16-19 Colleges, one Secondary School and three Primary Schools.

Why Work for Us?

  • NCLT was crowned ‘Employer of the Year’ at the 2023 MAT Excellence Awards – these national awards celebrate the very best performers from over one thousand MATs across the country
