Salary Range:

The School of Health and Social Work is seeking to appoint an external examiner for the following modules:

External Examiner to commence January 2015

Cancer Care (level 6 & 7)
End of Life Care (level 6 & 7)
Pain management (level 6 & 7)

This position requires the external examiner to have the relevant experience of the above modules and have a current registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council.

As an external examiner you will have responsibility for the external moderation of assessments and portfolios as well as supporting the relevant module teams with their planned assessment strategy. The commitment will require attendance at the relevant examinations boards and the compilation of an annual External Examiners’ Monitoring Report. You will be invited to attend an induction day where you can view the facilities and discuss current assessment practices with the examinations staff. There will also be an opportunity for you to meet the programme and module leaders. On line submission is in place so most scripts can be viewed via our managed learning environment. We hope you will join us in our work and help us ensure and maintain the quality and standards of our innovative post-registration nursing programmes.

Appointment is subject to meeting the University’s criteria for the appointment of external examiners.
