Invigilators are responsible for the conduct of examinations, they are the official people present during the examination who take care of students, provide support if needed and watch to prevent cheating. They are present at every examination to ensure that examinations are held in accordance with the current Anglia Ruskin University Academic Regulations.
This role would suit a person who enjoys mixing with people, has the confidence to enforce the regulations if necessary and deal effectively and promptly with any problems that may occur during the examination.
We primarily need Invigilators for our main examination sessions which run in January, May and July. However, we also have a number of examinations throughout the year, mainly for nursing exams. The main exams are based at East Road in Cambridge, Chelmsford and Peterborough for some nursing exams. The rate of pay is currently £8.50 an hour.
Full training is provided to new invigilators and a handbook detailing Anglia Ruskin University’s policy and regulations for examinations is given to all invigilators.
Applicants should be confident dealing with groups of students and sensitive to the stresses of an examination environment. The size of examinations varies from 1 to 100+ and invigilators should be able to cover all sizes of groups. Two or more invigilators are allocated to each examination with more than 25 students, with as many as 8 invigilators presiding over examinations with 100+ students.
We also arrange examinations for students with specific exam arrangements. These examinations are usually no larger than 10 students. The invigilators for these examinations should be sympathetic to the needs of the student whilst ensuring that the integrity of the examination is not compromised.
Invigilators are required to complete various reports and registers. These are kept as the official record of attendance and any events during the examination. Accurate record keeping is therefore essential.
