Opening Date:
25 Apr 2016
Closing Date:
16 May 2016
Salary Range:

Our friendly team requires an external examiner for the new BSc (Hons) Counselling and Psychotherapy Practices and Principles programme. The programme is based in the Department of Therapeutic Practice within the College of Health and Social Care. The programmes are accessed for three years full time or six years part time.

It is essential that the external examiner is a qualified and accredited psychotherapist, with a breadth of knowledge in the subject area and different psychotherapeutic orientations.

The appointment will be for 4 years, commencing September 2016.

The following modules will be included in the external moderation duties:

Level 4:
• History of Psychological Therapies
• Human Engagement and Connections: Understanding Self in Relation to Other 1
• Developing Counselling Skills and Professional Development Planning (PDP)
• Health and Social Care Settings Contexts and Frameworks

Level 5:
• Psychotherapeutic Approaches & Professional Development Planning (PDP)
• Human Engagement and Connections: Understanding Self in Relation to Other 2
• Meta-Awareness and the Unconscious
• Group Dynamics (Optional module)

Level 6:
• Dissertation and Professional Development Planning
• Core Issues, Diversity & Debates
• Counselling Skills
• Negotiated Module
• Coaching Skills

As a new programme the external examiner’s duties will develop as the programme does, so in the first year there would only be level 4 modules, in the second year there would be levels 4 & 5 to externally examine and by the third year of the contract all the modules at all levels would require examining.
The programmes have two assessment boards per academic year which the External Examiner will be expected to attend.
