External Examiner – MSc in Advanced Clinical Practice (Child)

Opening Date:
13 May 2024
Closing Date:
21 Jun 2024
Salary Range:

The Institute of Health and Social Care at London South Bank University has a long-standing reputation for excellence in the education, research and practice development of a variety of health and social care specialists.

The Division of Advanced Clinical Practice and Non-Medical Prescribing is seeking to appoint an external examiner for our MSc in Advanced Clinical Practice (child) course, from September 2024. LSBU is one of a small number of HEIs that offer a child specific ACP programme. This programme is accredited (along with our ACP (Adult) and ACP (mental health course)) by Health Education England’s Centre for Advancing Practice.

The University operates a two-tier examination board system, with external examiners being initially appointed to a Subject Area Board where they will oversee a number of academic modules. More experienced external examiners may subsequently be appointed to an Award and Progression Examination Board. The Examination Board meets virtually three times a year, and there is an expectation that the external examiner will attend at least one Examination Board during the year and submit an annual report to the University.

Applications are invited from suitably qualified academic staff who hold a minimum of a Master’s degree. The ideal academic candidate for this post will have previous experience as an External Examiner in advanced practice (although support will be provided to exceptional candidates without this prior experience) and should be currently active in educational delivery and research within the field of advanced practice.
All appointments are subject to the candidate meeting the University’s criteria for appointment

Please apply by 21st June 2024 with a CV detailing any external examining and practice experience.
