• Support the Head of centre in ensuring that the centre is compliant with JCQ regulations and awarding body requirements in order to ensure the security and integrity of the examinations/assessments at all times;
• Act on behalf of, and be the main point of contact for, the centre in matters relating to the general administration of awarding body examinations and assessments;
• Closely liaise with key stakeholders (external and internal) to ensure exams administration processes are strictly followed and key deadlines met;
• Ensure examinations are conducted in accordance with the regulations;
• Through taking an ethical approach and working proactively to avoid malpractice among students and staff, support the Head of centre in taking all reasonable steps to prevent the occurrence of any malpractice / maladministration before, during the course of and after examinations have taken place.
