Plymouth Marjon University* is seeking to appoint an External Examiner for the FdSc Assistant Practitioner and Higher-Level Apprenticeship Assistant Practitioner (FdSc).
This appointment will commence with immediate effect, following approval, and will end on 31st December 2026.

About the role
The External Examiner would be expected to engage with the provision virtually and, where appropriate, in person and submit an annual report in the summer; a much briefer interim report is also requested in February/March. A fee is payable in line with sector norms, along with reasonable expenses.
All prospective External Examiners will need to be registered with either the NMC or The Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). Recent External Examiner experience is desirable, although the University will provide a mentor for first-time External Examiners. In addition, all new External Examiners will be invited to an annual induction event. The full criteria for the appointment of External Examiners are set out in section 4 of the University’s Handbook for External Examiners, which can be accessed at https://www.marjon.ac.uk/about-marjon/institutional-documents/external-examination.
The University regrets that nominations from current or recently retired colleagues from Coventry University and the University of East London cannot be considered at the present time, due to the number of current External Examiners from these institutions in post (or in the process of being appointed).
Please e-mail your CV, including details of your relevant experience, to LDaniel@marjon.ac.uk by Friday 19th May.
