The Bar Standards Board (BSB) regulates barristers called to the Bar in England and Wales in the public interest. We are responsible for setting the education and training requirements for becoming a barrister. The vocational stage of training, the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC), ensures that students intending to become barristers acquire the skills, knowledge of procedure and evidence, attitudes and competence to prepare them for pupillage.

An opportunity has arisen for a suitably experienced individual (employees of the University of Law are ineligible to apply on this occasion) to contribute to high standards in the delivery of the Criminal Litigation centralised assessment of the BPTC.

The role involves: quality controlling the question writing process; creating robust, high quality examination papers and mark schemes; actively contributing to the decision making processes of the standard setting meetings, subject and final exam boards; attending training events as required.

Applicants should ideally have assessment experience, alongside a detailed knowledge of the area of Criminal Litigation.

Time commitment for the role will be around 20 days per annum. The initial appointment will be until the end of 2018 with the possibility of renewal by mutual consent.
