The School of Health and Life Sciences is seeking to appoint an external examiner to a range of modules within our BA (Hons) Integrated Health and Social Care programme. The remit involves assessment of modules relating to:
- Dimensions of Health and Social Welfare
- Integrating Health and Social Care
- Contemporary Issues in Health & Social Care
- Work related learning 2
- The Context of Integration
External examiner responsibilities include moderation of assessment methods/samples/results and completion of an annual report. A schedule of module confirmation events per academic session will be made available and external examiners would be expected to complete external moderation in line with these dates. The School uses an electronic marking system associated with the originality checking programme Turnitin, called Grademark. External examiners are required to make use of the system during the external moderation process (this being accessible through the Virtual Learning Environment).
Experienced and new external examiners will be considered provided the applicant has the relevant professional qualification(s) and experience. Relevant professional experience in the fields of health, social care or social work and a valid teaching qualification are essential requirements for this post.
The appointment will be with effect from 1 October 2023 to 30 September 2027.
Full details of the programmes and modules will be provided to appointees and an online induction will be provided by the University following appointment. Further information about UWS policy for external examiners is available at:
