Opening Date:
6 Jul 2017
Closing Date:
3 Aug 2017
Salary Range:

Northumbria University, Faculty of Health & Life Sciences, Department of Nursing, Midwifery and Health currently has a vacancy for an External Examiner within the post-qualifying Continuing Professional Development/Continuing Workforce Development (CWD) Framework.

It would be preferred, though not essential, if the candidate had previous experience as an external examiner.
The role will involve acting as external examiner for a new Postgraduate Diploma in Advanced Paramedic Practice (Urgent Care) programme within our commissioned Workforce Development Framework. Students on the programme are Registered Paramedics seeking to advance both their skills and role within the Paramedic workforce.

We would be particularly interested in securing an external examiner who is a registered Paramedic with experience of urgent care and postgraduate programmes. However, consideration will also be given to candidates on the NMC register with similar experiences.

In addition to academic modules within this area, the external examiner may also be called upon to examine more generic/core modules within the CWD Framework. Though predominately at degree level, there is an increasing academic provision at Master’s level across the post qualifying programmes.
