A few times a year, we train up EFS assessors so that they can assess EFS applications. If you have an interest in becoming an EFS assessor, please complete our ‘expression of interest’ form.

Why become an EFS assessor

As an EFS assessor, you will gain and improve skills in assessing in a higher-education setting while being supported by the EFS team. This is also a fantastic opportunity to connect with a teaching-focused community within ANU. You will have opportunities to network with other EFS assessors (including senior academics and members of professional staff). And finally, by assessing EFS applications, you will make a tangible difference to the applicants’ careers in higher education.

What is involved

Your time is valuable, which is why we are aiming to minimise the required time commitment on administration and ensure that you can focus on the task at hand. As a minimum requirement, we ask that EFS assessors attend one EFS assessor workshop per year (1.5 hours).

Every EFS assessment is different and some applications will take more time to assess than others. The expected time commitment per assessment is between 1.5 and 2.5 hours, to be completed during our cycle of assessment. These cycles take place twice a year: in March/April and September/October. We will contact you via email prior to each cycle of assessment with further details about the exact timeframe, and to ask how many assessments you can take on in that cycle.
