CLASSIC MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS AND INTERLOCUTOR-INVIGILATOR TRAINING PROCEDURES

Each of the registered GA Classic centres need to train one of their staff to act as Interlocutor-Invigilator for the GA Classic candidates. A GA CLASSIC session needs to be invigilated and examined by a single person – a certified GA Classic Interlocutor-Invigilator. The regularity of an exam session is the Interlocutor-Invigilator’s responsibility.

The procedure for becoming a certified GA Classic Interlocutor-Invigilator is as follows:

1. Attending an introductory webinar or seminar

The introductory event can be held online or face-to-face. Potential Interlocutor-Invigilators need to send their CVs and a completed Role Application Form to m.stajkovic@gatehouse.it.

In addition to the introductory event, those interested in conducting Classic online exams need to attend another webinar.
Interlocutors who have already gone through the introductory training, need to send their completed Role Application form to m.stajkovic@gatehouse.it to apply for one of the Classic online webinars.

The minimum requirement for becoming a GA Certified Interlocutor-Invigilator is:

- Must have reached near-native competence or be a native English speaker,
- Must be able to use English to the level that allows the candidate to fulfil all the tasks in the examination,
- Must have a degree in English (either in languages or an internationally recognised TEFL/TESOL diploma),
- Must have a minimum of 3 years of recent and relevant teaching experience,
- Should not be the candidate’s own English language teacher.

The webinar / seminar dates are published regularly on the GA Italy website. Registration deadline is 2 working days before the event date.

2. Test Completion

All the Interlocutor-Invigilators who have attended a webinar or a seminar, need to complete a test on the regulations of the delivery of GA Classic Exams. The test will be sent directly to the Interlocutor-Invigilator and will need to be returned within 10 working days.

Feedback will be sent to all the Interlocutor-Invigilators.
