You should have appropriate expertise and experience to be able to undertake a role in the assurance of academic standards in Higher Education. Experience teaching on an undergraduate midwifery programme is essential, but this role may be suitable for an inexperienced external examiner to support the other external examiner on the programme.

The appointees will be required to moderate a sample of scripts in relation to selected modules within the above programmes. You will also be required to produce an annual report and attend Assessment Boards as appropriate.

You will also be required to attend a one day University External Examiners Induction session.

Please send expressions of interest and an accompanying CV to Sally Freeman at Sheffield Hallam University at s.freeman@shu.ac.uk.
