Gaelic medium subjects - marker opportunities

We are currently recruiting markers for Gaelic-medium subjects for the 2024 exams. SQA is committed to the Gaelic-medium education (GME) sector, and to ensuring the needs of the Gaelic learning community in Scotland are met. During the National Qualifications exam diet, candidates will sit exams in the medium of Gaelic, including:

Course titles and all units attained through the medium of Gaelic are reported in Gaelic on candidates’ Scottish Qualifications Certificate (SQC).

SQA markers are a key part of our exam operations, ensuring the consistent application of national standards when marking candidate assessments. Joining our marking team gives you the opportunity to gain valuable insight into assessment and quality assurance processes. You can also develop knowledge and skills to benefit your professional and personal development. Full training is provided.

Please note you must have been teaching the subject you wish to mark for a minimum of two years (you must have taught the whole course in your probationary year for this to count towards the two years).
