Invigilator training

To become a University examination invigilator, you must successfully complete our online training. 

If you haven't already applied to become an invigilator, please see the Invigilator recruitment page.

Core training 

Please read the Operational guide for invigilation (also available as a PDF download) to familiarise yourself with invigilation procedures.

You must successfully complete TWO online quizzes before invigilation duties will be allocated to you:

  • Quiz 1: preparing the examination venue before the exam
  • Quiz 2: the role of the invigilator during the examination

The links for each quiz will be emailed to you.

At the end of each quiz, click the 'Submit' button.  Your answers will be marked and submitted to the Exams Office to be reviewed.  Click the 'View results' button to check your answers and find out the correct answers if you got any questions wrong.  

The pass mark is given in the information at the start of the quiz.  

Sub-office

Some invigilators will be invited to work in our temporary examination sub-offices in the exam periods. These invigilators need to complete the relevant online training.  A link to the training will be emailed to you and you must successfully complete training before sub-office duties will be allocated to you.  

Please read the Operational guide for examination sub-offices (also available as a PDF download).  

Examination Assistants

Invigilators may also want to be considered to work as an amanuensis, typist, reader or prompter during exams. 

Please read the Operational guide for exam assistants (also available as a PDF download) and inform the Exams Office of your interest.

You must successfully complete an online quiz before any exam assistant duties will be allocated to you.  A link to the quiz will be emailed to you.  The pass mark is given at the beginning of the quiz.  You will also be required to show your reading and writing skills before becoming an exam assistant.
