Recruiting Item Writers and Education Consultants
SQA is recruiting professionals experienced in developing texts, items and marking schemes for the National Curriculum for England in the following areas:
Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2
- English Reading
- English Grammar Punctuation & Spelling
- Professional Skills Test
We are also recruiting Education Consultants to co-ordinate a small team of Writers/Reviewers to ensure their output matches Item Specifications, that there is a clear mapping to the Curriculum and items meet the standard set by the Standards & Testing Agency in terms including copyright, suitability.
Working mostly virtually, the team will write and review each other’s work which in turn will be co-ordinated and finalised by an Education Consultant.
Individual work packages will be assigned that are manageable and achievable within the times we allocate. Generally, this work could be carried out in your own time, however some informal trialling will need to take place for qualitative feedback, therefore access to a school would be advantageous.
