Opening Date:
2 Dec 2019
Closing Date:
12 Jan 2020
Salary Range:

We are seeking to appoint a Subject External Examiner for our Pre-registration Nursing (Mental Health) programme. This programme is based within the School of Nursing and Midwifery, Faculty of Health, Medicine, Dentistry and Human Sciences. We offer a three year single field full time undergraduate programme, a four year dual field registration master’s programme and a two year MSc all of which on successful completion lead to eligibility to register with the Nursing & Midwifery Council on part 1 of the register in one or more fields of practice. This position does require the external examiner to be a Mental Health Nurse, have a recordable teaching qualification and a current registration with the Nursing & Midwifery Council.

The appointment will be until the 31 October 2024 and the commitment required is as follows:

  • To review a range of coursework throughout the year
  • To attend an assessment panel per year and the submission of an annual external examiner report.
  • To engage in communication with the programme team
  • To carry out at least one interim engagement per year (which may take the form of a ‘virtual’ visit by video conference/Skype in recognition of the logistical difficulties presented by Plymouth’s geographical location) and at least one face to face visit during the term of office to obtain feedback from staff and students on assessment in practice and to strengthen their engagement with the ongoing teaching and learning process.

All appointments are subject to the candidate meeting the University’s criteria for appointment. If you would like to be considered for this role, please submit a CV by email to extexhhs@plymouth.ac.uk by 12th January 2020 or for further information about the role email Francis Thompson (Programme Lead) on francis.thompson@plymouth.ac.uk
