The post will commence in October 2018 with a four year tenure. The role holder will work with one other experienced external examiner and will be responsible for reviewing level 5, 6 and 7 units.

Responsibilities also involve completion of an annual monitoring report and attendance at the relevant Assessment Boards (held in July and December at our Lansdowne Campus in Bournemouth town centre). Briefing seminars are held for new external examiners to introduce them to the role.
