The Leicester School of Nursing and Midwifery, at De Montfort University, is seeking to recruit an external panel member for our BSc (Hons) Nursing (Apprenticeship) approval event. The approval event will take place virtually on either 18th, 19th, 26th May (date tbc).
This event will be a conjoint major modification event with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) to add the apprenticeship route to our BSc (Hons) Nursing programme (all fields of practice) which was successfully approved in November 2020.
We are looking for someone with in-depth knowledge and understanding of the pre-registration BSc (Hons) Nursing/ NMC (2018) Standards and Apprenticeship delivery. Prior external examiner or external panel member experience is desirable. Knowledge of, or involvement in a nursing apprenticeship programme is essential.
The role of the external panel member would be to scrutinise the Partnership Approval and Apprenticeship Delivery for two local employers. We would encourage academics with relevant subject expertise, who have experience of quality review processes within their own and other Higher Education Institutions, to apply. The external panel member would receive documentation prior to the event date and is required to provide written comments in advance of the event, they would then attend the event, which is expected to be one full day.
Interested applicants should submit an expression of interest and CV to Richard Postance, Programme Leader, RPostance@dmu.ac.uk, 0116 2013825
Please note that current External Examiners of De Montfort University cannot apply, and applicants should not have had close involvement with the University within the last five years.
