External Examiner – Pre-Registration Physiotherapy

Opening Date:
7 Jan 2021
Closing Date:
22 Jan 2021
Salary Range:

The School of Nursing, Midwifery and Health at Coventry University wishes to appoint a number of External Examiners to support our current team of external examiners for our pre-registration Physiotherapy courses. We are looking for candidates to support courses in the UK and in Malaysia.

Coventry University offers extensive support for external examiners and holds briefing workshops annually. Further support is also provided by the professional lead, course directors and course administrators. The University normally expects external examiners to attend a minimum of two Board of Examiners meetings per year and to complete an annual External Examiner Monitoring Report.

The appointed External Examiner will work alongside other external examiners advising and commenting on modules at Coventry University.

Applicants are advised that the University applies the following criteria to external examiners:

  • The area of expertise of external examiners is within the area of assessment undertaken;
  • Applicants should have recently been employed (or are still employed) within a university appointment;
  • Applicants must not have been a Coventry University examiner or employee within the last five years;
  • Applicants will have a qualification registered with the HCPC or the NMC, a commitment to interprofessional education and, in addition, ideally will also have external examining experience.
