The English Exam Centre at Ara is looking for people to train and work as test administrators (TAs) for the Pearson Test of English (PTE). TAs need to have a reasonable level of confidence in dealing with computers and technology as the test is fully computer-delivered; sign-in procedures, security processes and technical support are also all administered via computer. TAs also need to have sound customer service skills to make the testing process as comfortable and stress-free as possible for candidates, and experience working with people from non-English speaking backgrounds. Tests currently run on Monday, Thursday and Friday afternoons between 12noon and 4pm however these times may vary in the future. Initially TAs will invigilate one test per week with the potential to increase as demand increases.
5-6 hours paid training is included, plus a one-hour certification exam. Start date is flexible but as soon as possible preferred.
