Meeting JCQ requirements
All online and face-to-face training offered by The Exams Office is in line with JCQ requirements. Content, as detailed in the Invigilator Training Record template, is taken directly from the relevant JCQ publications, in particular, Instructions for conducting examinations.
Certification is offered for all online invigilator training and assessment modules to confirm understanding of the regulations and any changes for the current academic year.
This ensures that centres not only meet, but go beyond the JCQ stipulation to hold training sessions/update meetings and to retain a record of the training given to invigilators and those facilitating access arrangements, whilst also meeting requirements for inspection purposes.
Online Training and Assessment
(Option 1) Invigilator Training Presentation – Deliver training via videos recorded by our trainers to invigilators in your centre
(Option 2) PowerPoint presentation – Customise and deliver a presentation to invigilators in your centre

For the 2021/2022 academic year, The Exams Office will be taking bookings for an online Zoom/Teams session with one of our subject matter experts to update your experienced invigilators/existing invigilation teams in JCQ regulation changes for the current academic year.
For JCQ inspection purposes, electronic copies of certificates will be forwarded for all participants
This session will cover all changes in JCQ’s Instructions for conducting examinations publication which are relevant to invigilators in the conducting of examinations, and will meet JCQ requirements for ‘an update meeting to be held for the existing invigilation team so that they are aware of any changes‘.
This online training session will reduce costs for centres, and save time for exams officers and invigilators.

Trainers will deliver a pre-defined training programme, and it is the responsibility of the centre to ensure that invigilators are familiar with the specific centre requirements.
