This well-established programme attracts students from a wide cross-section of national and international health and social care public and private sector organisations. The external examiner will also be involved with a small number of leadership modules contributing to other programmes at Levels 3 and M.
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.
The appointment is for one year in the first instance with the possibility of extending for a further 3 year term. 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.
The external examiner is required to be available for consultation on assessment and curriculum issues – Module Assessment Boards are held twice per semester – and to be present at the School Progression and Awards Board for the programme (normally in November). For further details please visit http://www.leeds.ac.uk/qat/externalexaminers/ 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.
