External Examiner – MSc in Leadership and Management in Health and Social Care

Opening Date:
16 Jul 2015
Closing Date:
10 Aug 2015
Salary Range:

The MSc in Leadership and Management in Health and Social Care programme is a well-established programme attracting students from a wide cross-section of national and international health and social care public and private sector organisations. The BHSc (Hons) Nursing (Post-Registration) programme is now closed to new applicants and the responsibilities for this programme will be limited, as there are only a very few remaining students.

Applicants should have a profile in research, innovative teaching, learning and assessment and normally hold a higher degree at Masters level or above. Previous experience of acting in the role of external examiner is desirable.

All external examiners are required to attend the School Progression and Award Board meetings for the programme (at least one per year) and be available for consultation on assessment and curriculum issues. The School uses GradeMark to mark most assignments and for these the external examiner will be required to view students’ work and markers’ comments on-line.

The appointment is for one year in the first instance with the possibility of extending for a further 3 year term and is to commence from the 2015-2016 academic session. All 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 of Leeds’ assessment process and to enable them to meet the programme team.

For an informal discussion or for further information regarding the programme please contact Gayle Garland, Programme Leader (see below).

Anyone wishing to be considered is invited to submit an expression of interest and detailed Curriculum Vitae outlining their teaching, research, and where applicable, external examining experience by 10 August 2015 to:

Gayle Garland, School of Healthcare, The University of Leeds, Leeds LS2 9UT
