External Examiner – FdSc Professional Practice in Health & Social Care/Higher Apprentice in Assistant Practitioner
The Faculty of Health and Wellbeing, Sheffield Hallam University are seeking to appoint an External Examiner from September 2019 . This programme is franchised to 7 HE colleges and is a large collaborative provision. It creates an exciting opportunity to work with staff and students from a wide and diverse spectrum of health and Social care settings. The main challenge for the programme team is to ensure standardisation and equity of assessment for all students across all colleges. The programme is primarily work Based learning although there is no requirement for the External Examiner to visit or monitor practice placements. Many students are employed in the Health and social Care sector or are seconded by their employer as a Higher apprentice student. An ideal candidate for this role would be an experienced Nursing/Allied health/Social work practitioner on the appropriate register with approximately three years experience in an academic role within a HEI.
