Exam Invigilators

During exam seasons, we have work for Exam Invigilators. Registration is quick and easy. Once cleared, we will keep you informed of all available opportunities.

If you already have a valid Enhanced DBS certificate and are interested in Exam Invigilation work, please get in touch.

Registration process

We like to keep things simple. Here’s our three-step registration process:

1. Informal Chat We’ll set-up a convenient time to have a chat with you over the phone about your work history, current situation and what sort of role that you’re looking for. It would be helpful for you to have a copy of your CV in front of you but this isn’t essential.

2. Registration Interview Next, we’ll arrange a face-to-face interview so that we can get to know you a bit better. You’ll fill out registration paperwork and we’ll verify your identity and credential documents. We will discuss your job requirements and how we will work with you.

3. Clearance Checks At this point we then need to conduct the necessary compliance and clearance checks to get you in the classroom. Our team works efficiently to get these through as quickly as possible. Once this process is complete, we will then be able to book your first assignment.

Recieve a £50 voucher

The majority of our teaching and support staff are found through recommendations from other candidates.

We like to reward our candidates so as a way of saying thanks, we’ll give you a £50 voucher for either Amazon or M&S if you ‘refer a friend’ to us.

The friend that you recommend to us will get the benefit of our dedicated support in finding the work that they are looking for and you get a £50 voucher once they have worked with us for ten days. To be eligible, you must have been registered and have previously worked through Education People.

‘Refer a Friend’ - the process:

1. Get in touch with us directly or through our refer a friend page and introduce us to your friend OR ask your friend to contact us and tell us that you have referred them.

2. Your friend goes through our registration and clearance check process.

3. Once cleared, your friend completes ten days’ work through Education People.

4. We contact you to choose what sort of voucher you’d prefer and we sent it to you.
