Salary Range:

We seek an external examiner for our four year, part-time, pre-registration BSc (Hons) Occupational Therapy course and degree apprenticeship.

Further support is also provided by the Course leader and the Academic Lead for the Occupational Therapy Programme. The University normally expects external examiners to attend a minimum of one examination board per year, typically the summer board in July. The role will involve examining across a range of Year 1, 2, 3 and 4 academic and practice placement modules, working alongside the current examiner. It is desirable for applicants to have experience of problem-based learning and/or part-time course teaching/ leadership, but not essential.
