Pearson have exciting opportunities for English teachers to become Examiners for our GCSE & GCE Qualification.

An Examiner marks candidates’ responses in accordance with the pre-defined mark scheme, whilst adhering to Code of Practice and examination procedures. Most subjects will be marked onscreen using ePEN, which can be done from home. A few subjects are still marked in the traditional method, using paper scripts sent through the post.

• Develop your career in education
