There is no definite time that we can say you will need to allocate the role. The most important thing is that a Validator will make their work for the Award suit their personal circumstances. There will be weeks when you will have nothing on and there will be weeks when you might have 2 or 3 schools submit their applications. As with any job, at the beginning, it will probably take longer to process an application than at a later stage. We anticipate one spending 2 to 3 hours a week when there are applications to be validated online.
For school or college visits, depending on the request of the school or college, it will probably be a half day or a full day.
There might also be times when schools/colleges will ask for a support visit.
We aim that Validators will work with schools/colleges that are geographically close to them to avoid long journeys. This is why we ask for your Catholic parish and diocese.
