Opening Date:
5 Sep 2022
Closing Date:
12 Sep 2022
Salary Range:

The School of Health and Social Wellbeing at The University of the West of England is seeking to appoint an experienced and suitably qualified External Examiner for Independent and Supplementary Prescribing to start in October 2022.

This is an exciting opportunity to support the Department of Nursing and Midwifery which delivers multi-professional Independent and Supplementary prescribing programmes across the South West. The programme has accreditations with the NMC, the GPhC and the HCPC.

Essential: Applicants must be registered with the GPhC and hold IP qualification/registration.

Interested applicants must have relevant knowledge and experience in Independent Prescribing and have HE experience of teaching, managing, and assessing students.

We particularly encourage applications from members of Black and Minority Ethnic communities, as this group is currently underrepresented among external examiners. We will support applicants who do not have prior experience of being an External Examiner.

The role requires external moderation of assessments, attendance at the Examination boards, completion of an Annual External Examiners Report and potential consultation on programme modifications.
