We are seeking to appoint a Subject External Examiner for the BSc (Hons) Nursing (Child Health) programme. This programme is based within the School of Nursing and Midwifery, Faculty of Health and Human Sciences. It is a full time 3-year undergraduate programme which on successful completion leads to eligibility to register with the Nursing & Midwifery Council on part 1 of the register.

The appointment will be until the 31 October 2023 and the commitment required is as follows:

  • To attend an assessment panel per year and the submission of an annual external examiner report.
  • To review a range of coursework throughout the year
  • To engage in communication with the programme team
  • To carry out at least one interim engagement per year (which may take the form of a ‘virtual’ visit by video conference/Skype in recognition of the logistical difficulties presented by Plymouth’s geographical location) and at least one face to face visit during the term of office to obtain feedback from staff and students on assessment in practice and to strengthen their engagement with the ongoing teaching and learning process.

All appointments are subject to the candidate meeting the University’s criteria for appointment.
