My examining experience has been hugely beneficial to my career. It has allowed me to teach my students how to get better results. It was also a big factor in getting me appointed as Director of Sixth Form.

Michael, OCR Examiner

Being an examiner has certainly provided me with a greater knowledge of the course content. I have become more familiar with the style of answer that is required and how to mark student work throughout the year, providing greater levels of feedback for the students, which is fundamental to their progress.

Rachel, OCR Examiner

OCR provided not just training for examiners, but a range of networking opportunities, including online forums, up-to-date blogs and people who were generally online as much as me. I was welcomed by my Team Leader, and encouraged and praised. I felt part of the team in no time.

Nicole, OCR Examiner
