Invigilation support


To ensure exams are conducted as required, in line with JCQ and awarding body regulations and instructions, a team of fully trained invigilators (and access arrangement facilitators) needs to be in place in a centre.

A well trained and effective team of invigilators will ensure that exams run smoothly and according to the required instructions for conducting exams. The Exams Office provides a suite of resources to support the recruitment, training and deployment of invigilators.

Invigilation videos


The Exams Office - in conjunction with OCR - have added a series of JCQ-compliant online video clips incorporating the latest rules and regulations relating to invigilation. These are intended to help our members when training their invigilators.


Video clips are being reviewed and updated for 2018/19 and will be published here early in the new academic year


The first 5 clips focus upon:

  • Starting an examination
  • Dealing with emergencies (fire alarm)
  • Dealing with malpractice
  • Ending the exam
  • Collecting the scripts




The Exams Office is the only organisation which provides exams officers with up-to-date online videos which you can use as part of your invigilator training
