The JCQ ‘Instructions for Conducting Examinations’ states that training on the current regulations must be held for invigilators and those facilitating an access arrangement, with an update for existing invigilators. Centres must ensure that all exam support staff are thoroughly trained and their competence and understanding of the current regulations is rigorously tested. Each of our courses include an online assessment of understanding; delegates can download a certificate to prove their understanding after passing the assessment.
Training for Invigilators in Exams is intended for training Invigilators in exams for General Qualifications.
Based on the JCQ ‘Instructions for Conducting Examinations’ (ICE) booklet this course covers:
Please note that this course does not cover in detail the requirements for facilitating access arrangements (e.g. Readers, Scribes etc.) or the invigilation of candidates with access arrangements.

This course covers the regulations and procedures for the administration and invigilation of access arrangements as outlined in the JCQ booklets: ‘Instructions for Conducting Examinations’ (ICE) and ‘Access Arrangements and Reasonable Adjustments’.

Combined Course Offer gives delegates access to both courses at a reduced price.
The Update Courses for Experienced Invigilators/Exam Helpers are intended for experienced invigilators or exam helpers who have received previous training and are confident they remember that training. These are short training courses that briefly refresh knowledge but focus on any changes/updates to the JCQ requirements from the previous year. As with the full courses above, each login includes one assessment for delegates to demonstrate their knowledge.
If you have used our Exam Support courses previously, please note there are a few changes to the way they work from 2023/24:
Why have these changes been made?
For centres that want to watch the training as a group:
We appreciate that many centres will still want to watch the training videos as a group. In this case, you would still book a login for every delegate (because they need this to access the individual assessment), but then when you gather as a group, use a projector to watch the training videos together from one delegate’s login. Then every delegate can complete the online assessments via their own login after watching the training. Because every login has both the training videos and the assessments, those who miss the group session, or those who want to revisit them through the year can still access the training videos on their own login.
