The Institute of Health and Allied Professions at Nottingham Trent University is seeking an External Examiner for the professional and postgraduate certificate courses in Neonatal care.
These courses are aligned to the national competencies for neonatal care and designed to prepare graduates to work at ‘qualified in specialty’ level of practice. We are seeking an External Examiner with good knowledge and understanding of neonatal care.
The appointment will commence in the 2020/21 academic year, with immediate effect, for a tenure period of four years. All External Examiner appointments are subject to approval by the University External Examiner Approval Panel.
The role of the external examiner is to consider:
- whether the standards set for the course are appropriate for its awards, award elements or subjects, by reference to published QAA Subject Benchmark Statements, the Framework for Higher Education Qualifications (FHEQ), course specifications and other relevant information;
- the comparability of the standards with those of similar courses or parts of courses in other UK higher education providers;
- the standards of student performance in the assessments for those courses;
- the extent to which the processes for assessment and the determination of awards are sound, have been fairly conducted and have supported the intended learning outcomes;
- whether the action points in previous external examiner reports have been acted upon, and standards and quality thereby enhanced;
- strengths and distinctive / innovative features in relation to academic standards, the operation of the assessment process and the quality of learning opportunities;
- attend at least one examination board/s per year and submit an annual report.
