Opening Date:
9 Oct 2019
Closing Date:
28 Oct 2019
Salary Range:

The School of Healthcare is seeking an external examiner for its 3 year pre-registration adult nursing programme, which also includes an apprenticeship route. There is a team of examiners for this programme and the role includes responsibility for a number of field specific modules and some cross nursing modules. An interest in healthcare ethics and/or palliative care would be desirable, but is not essential. The appointment will be with effect from November 2019.

We are seeking to appoint an individual who has a master’s degree (and ideally has or be working towards a PhD); a strong background in pre-registration education; a track record of publishing and scholarly activity; current registration with the NMC as an adult nurse; and who is working within a Higher Education Institution.

The tenure of appointment is for a period of one year in the first instance, normally followed by a further three year period. All external examiner appointments are subject to approval by the Faculty Taught Student Education Committee. The School holds an annual induction event for new external examiners to familiarise them with the University’s assessment process and to enable them to meet the programme team.

There is a two tier examination board system comprising of Module Assessment Boards and School Progression and Awards Board (SPAB). All external examiners are full members of these committees and are required to attend at least one meeting of the SPAB per year and be available for consultation on assessment and curriculum issues.

The School uses GradeMark to mark assignments and the external examiner will be required to view students’ work and markers’ comments on-line.
