2022 ATAR course examinations - marker application

The School Curriculum and Standards Authority (the Authority) is seeking applications from qualified people interested in marking the ATAR course practical and/or written examinations.

Marking may involve school holidays, Term 4 school days, Saturday and/or Sunday, public holiday or evening work, depending on the course being marked. If teaching in a school during the marking period, permission must be obtained from the principal to undertake the marking role.

Due to Coronavirus (COVID-19), changes to the process of marking the ATAR course examinations may occur in alignment with State Government policy and advice from the Western Australian Department of Health to ensure the health and safety of the students, markers and examination employees. Appointed markers will be informed of any changes.

COVID-19 vaccination
All markers for ATAR course examinations must have all COVID-19 vaccinations as mandated by the Western Australian Chief Health Officer for all Department of Education employees. A marker will not be able to commence work without all mandated COVID-19 vaccination requirements.

The Authority endeavours to ensure that the anonymity of Chief Markers and markers is maintained.

Markers must declare any conflicts of interest to the Authority, including delivering seminars/lectures or engaging in preparatory examination marking forums involving students.

Any current Department of Education employee may only undertake work which is outside their regular working hours or it may constitute a breach of contract and disciplinary action may occur. Work that is completed or meetings attended during work hours will be paid as teacher relief.

Prior to completing the application, it is important that the following document is read and understood.

Nationally Coordinated Criminal History Check (NCCHC)
All markers must have a current Nationally Coordinated Criminal History Check (NCCHC) conducted by the Department of Education and receive a Screening Clearance Number (SCN) prior to the examinations commencing.

Markers will be informed of their SCN status at appointment. If the SCN is not current, information will be supplied about how to complete a new NCCHC.

Applications for marking close on Monday, 20 June 2022.
