We will be seeking University and NMC approval for both standard 3-year degree and Registered Nurse Degree Apprenticeship (RNDA) 4-year versions of each programme

• An understanding of recent developments in the subject discipline;
• Familiarity with the expectations of potential employers in the subject area

In order to participate in the validation of a Registered Nurse Degree Apprenticeship (RNDA) programme, External Team Member nominees should also have:
• Experience of developing and delivering apprenticeship provision;
• Knowledge of relevant ESFA funding and compliance rules relating to apprenticeships

To preserve integrity of the process, External Team Member nominees should not:
• Be a current External Examiner for the University;
• Have been employed within the previous five years at the University (including as an External Examiner);

If you satisfy the above criteria and would like to volunteer to support the validation as an External Team Member, please contact Principal Lecturer, Linda Kenward at linda.kenward@cumbria.ac.uk with a brief summary of any relevant experience
