External Verifier Vacancies with Edexcel






I have received correspondence from Ruth Everett at Edexcel in connection with vacancies which the Edexcel organisation has from time to time for External Verifiers for its BTEC Counselling and Coaching qualifications. The initial correspondence is reproduced below in blue.


Edexcel is one of a number of Government appointed accreditation / awarding bodies in the English education system. You can read about these bodies by clicking here to go to an explanatory page on this website. A brief profile of Edexcel from its press pack is reproduced at the end of this page.


The role of the BTEC External Verifiers is to ensure that students’ work has been marked correctly to the national standard and is part of the quality control work which underpins standards in the national qualifications system.  


If anybody with appropriate qualifications and experience might be interested in learning more about External Verifier opportunities with Edexcel, please make contact with Ruth.




I work for Edexcel, the examinations and awarding body, and we currently have some External Verifier vacancies for our BTEC Counselling & Coaching qualifications. We are seeking to recruit professionals with some teaching experience – ideally relating to the BTEC -  and I wondered if it might be possible to promote these positions through your organisation in some way, for example: via e-communications, via a newsletter or on your website.

Becoming an external verifier helps individuals in their professional development through the training, support and experience that they gain, as well as bringing benefits to their students and therefore the health and social care sector in as a whole.

Full details of the role, fees and application process are available at:


If you think this might be possible, or would like to discuss any aspect of the recruitment please do contact me.

Thank you for your time: I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards
