External examiners are required to make use of the system during the external moderation process (this being accessible through Moodle Virtual Learning Environment).
Experienced and new external examiners will be considered provided the applicant has the relevant professional qualification(s) and experience. Relevant professional registration and experience in the field of mental health and a valid teaching qualification are essential requirements for this post.
