Marker credentialing

Attend a workshop

Selection process

Teachers invited to mark will receive an email invitation two to three months prior to a marking session. Due to the large number of applications received every year, selection of an applicant to a team might not be possible. Participation in any one session does not guarantee selection for the following sessions. 

Marking activities often occur on weekends or statutory holidays. Since a successful applicant will be appointed to and become an essential member of a marking team, it is important that the applicant is able to participate full-time in a team's assignment.
