The Professional Development Centre at the University of Lincoln is seeking to appoint an External Examiner for our inter-professional Non-Medical Prescribing Programme and Short Course.

An ideal candidate will have experience in teaching and examining at a UK HE institution, have a good understanding of quality assurance, and have specific subject knowledge in relation to the educational preparation of future Independent and Supplementary Prescribers. Previous experience as an External Examiner is preferred but not essential. The appointment will be for four academic years. Further information on the Programme and Short Course can be accessed via the following links: External Examiners play a central role in the maintenance of the standards of the University’s awards and the currency of the curriculum.
