The School of Healthcare is seeking two external examiners for its pre-registration, adult nursing programmes, which include an apprenticeship route and the newly approved curriculum. The appointments will be with effect from December 2020 and the successful applicants will join a team of external examiners for these programmes.
We are seeking to appoint an individual who has a master’s degree (and ideally has or be working towards a PhD); a strong background in pre-registration education; a track record of publishing and scholarly activity; current registration with the NMC as an adult nurse; and who is working within a Higher Education Institution.
The tenure of appointment is for a period of one year in the first instance, normally followed by a further three year period. All external examiner appointments are subject to approval by the Faculty Taught Student Education Committee. The School holds an annual induction event for new external examiners to familiarise them with the University’s assessment process and to enable them to meet the programme team.
There is a two tier examination board system comprising of Module Assessment Boards and School Progression and Awards Board (SPAB). All external examiners are full members of these committees and are required to attend at least one meeting of the SPAB per year and be available for consultation on assessment and curriculum issues.
The School uses GradeMark to mark assignments and the external examiner will be required to view students’ work and markers’ comments on-line.
Anyone wishing to be considered is invited to submit an expression of interest and detailed Curriculum Vitae outlining their teaching, research, publication and, where applicable, external examining experience to: Kirsten Johnson, Associate Director of Student Education, firstname.lastname@example.org
You are most welcome to contact Kirsten for an informal discussion or further details.
