More details
We are looking to recruit Study Administrators to support delivery of PISA 2022 in schools in Scotland during the autumn term of 2022. The assessments will be delivered online and by using Study Administrators we are able to reduce the burden on schools, maintain the security and confidentiality of the assessment content and maintain consistency in administration across schools.

You will receive training and detailed guidance on how to deliver the assessments, with access to FAQs and helpline support. You will be responsible for liaising with your allocated schools to make arrangements for the visit, delivering the administration and returning all materials securely to NFER.

All applicants must be qualified teachers and must not be on the barred teachers list or have any judgements pending. You may be required to provide a copy of your qualification certificate/letter.

As well as being a qualified teacher, the qualities that we require in a Study Administrator include the following:
• an understanding of the highly confidential nature of this work
• the ability to communicate effectively with people at all levels, tailoring your approach for pupils of different ages and teaching staff
• confidence, particularly in a school environment
• an understanding of the challenges that schools are facing as a result of the pandemic
• an understanding of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion requirements
• good organisational and administrative skills
• computer literacy and aptitude to learn new technology/deliver online assessments (following training)
• a professional attitude to the work.

Work in Scotland will take place between 18 October and 9 December 2022. You must be available to make at least five school visits during these dates. You will normally be allocated schools within a reasonable distance of your home location, so that you can make the visit in one day. In a small number of cases, those Study Administrators who are willing to do so, may be asked to travel longer distances or to make an overnight stay. We are particularly keen to recruit administrators from northern areas of Scotland.

The rate of pay will be £150 for each school visit. We also pay a mileage allowance of 45 pence per mile.
