The College of Nursing, Midwifery and Healthcare is seeking to appoint a range of external examiners for our post-registration Healthcare Courses.
- MSc Clinical Practice/ MSc Advanced Professional Practice – Post 1 (Core modules only)
- BSc (Hons) Clinical Practice, MSc Clinical Practice/ MSc Advanced Professional Practice – Post 2 (Option modules only)
There are two roles – Post 1 will review the core credits on both MSc Clinical Practice and MSc Advanced Professional Practice. The core options for students undertaking these awards are either a systematic review or and improvement project and a preceding preparatory module. Post 2 will review the acute, critical, and intensive care option modules – this is for both academic level 6 and level 7. Both posts would need applicants to have insight into current healthcare practice.
Applications are invited from suitably qualified and experienced lecturers in nursing. All appointments are subject to the candidate meeting the University’s criteria for appointment. Tenure will normally be for a period of four years.
There are intakes across the two campuses (Brentford and Reading). The assessment boards are all held on our Brentford campus (or using Microsoft Teams meetings). You will be joining a team of external examiners.
As an External Examiner you will be expected to:
- Have current registration with the NMC
- Be employed in Higher Education
- Scrutinize samples of examination/essay scripts and other assessed materials, advising module assessment boards on the content and standard of assessments.
- Attend a minimum of 2 assessment boards a year.
- Attend the annual Field Reviews.
- Undertake an annual visit to practice, to meet with students and mentors.
- Review new modules in preparation for validation events.
- Advise on academic misconduct and appeal cases.
- Submit an annual report to the University Quality Boards.
If you have not been an external examiner before, a mentor would be appointed for you. You would be part of a team of external examiners for the post -registration nursing courses here at the University. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. If you are interested in either of the above posts please send your expressions of interest by August 21st 2022, together with a full CV, in the first instance to:
