The Department of Health Sciences at the University of York is a large and multidisciplinary department, offering a broad range of educational programmes in the health and social care field. We are seeking to appoint a replacement external examiner for the Department’s pre-registration midwifery programme (BA Midwifery Practice).
External examiners are required to review and evaluate assessment marking; be a member of the Board of Examiners and attend meetings; comment and give advice on programme content, balance and structure; and to complete an annual report as part of the University of York’s quality assurance mechanisms. The University requires external examiners to attend a minimum of one examination board per year.
All appointments are subject to meeting the University’s criteria for the appointment of external examiners.
Successful applicants would be appointed with effect from October 2018 for a term of four academic years, and would join a supportive team of external examiners.
Informal enquiries can be made to Helen Recchia, Programme Leader (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Rachel Lavelle, Deputy Programme Leader (email@example.com).
General information about the Department can be found on our website: http://www.york.ac.uk/healthsciences/
Interested applicants should submit their letter of application and a CV to the Secretary to the Board of Examiners, Veronica Gillies (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The closing date for applications is Tuesday 21 August 2018.
