Art and Design question paper marker support event

We are considering new and alternative ways to support teaching professionals who, for various reasons, have not yet applied for or considered a question-paper marking role, or who are awaiting a marker offer from us after making an application.

Our first Art and Design question paper marker support event will take place in Stirling on Saturday 18 January 2020 from 10 am to 3 pm. During the event, we will be delivering interactive and supportive workshops based on the marking standards. This will provide the opportunity for you to work closely with our examination teams and gain first-hand practical marking experience of both the National 5 and Higher question papers.

It is our hope that, by attending this event, teaching professionals will feel confident to apply to mark a question paper and join a marking team when a position becomes available from 2020 onwards.

If you are interested in marking question papers, and feel you would benefit from this support, we encourage you to book a place to attend this free event through our online events booking system. Confirmation and further details will be emailed to you one week prior to the event.
