We are currently recruiting invigilators for the 2023 exams. Invigilators play a crucial role in supporting the exam diet. Their role is to help maintain the quality of the external assessments of National Qualifications by ensuring they are conducted in accordance with SQA policy and procedure.

All invigilation activities are carried out under the direction of a chief invigilator. Full training is provided, and no prior experience is required. You will also be supported by your chief invigilator throughout.

To find out more about the invigilator role and submit your application, visit the SQA website.

If you have any questions or need more information, please contact our SQA Co-ordinator cfalconer@knox.elcschool.org.uk  or SQA directly at invigilation@sqa.org.uk.

Dear Parent/Carer, 

Further to previous communications in regards to strike action, I can now advise that two further days of strike action on 28 February and 1 March 2023 have been declared by the Educational Institute of Scotland (EIS), the Association of Head Teachers and Deputes Scotland (AHDS), Scottish Secondary Schools Association (SSTA) and National Association of Schoolmasters/Union of Women Teachers (NASUWT). We are anticipating that the above action will go ahead and all services affected have discussed the impact that this action will have on the health and safety of our children and young people given that there will be a significantly reduced number of teaching staff, including those in leadership positions in our schools and Early Learning and Childcare settings. Please see letter issued from Nicola McDowell , dated 20 February 2022, for further details.
