More experienced external examiners may subsequently be appointed to an Award and Progression Examination Board. The Examination Board meets three times a year and there is an expectation that the external examiner will attend at least one Examination Board and submit an annual report to the University.
Applications are invited from suitably qualified academic staff who are registered children’s nurses and hold a minimum of a masters degree.
