Northumbria University, Faculty of Health & Life Sciences, Department of Nursing, Midwifery and Health currently has a vacancy for an External Examiner within the post-qualifying Continuing Professional Development/Continuing Workforce Development (CWD) Framework.
It would be preferred, though not essential, if the candidate had previous experience as an external examiner.
The role will involve acting as external examiner for a range of academic modules within our commissioned, Workforce Development Framework. Students on the CWD modules are predominately from nursing roles, as are the external examiner team you would be joining, therefore there is an expectation that the successful applicant should be a current NMC registrant.
We are at this time particularly interested in securing an external examiner with experience in both:
– Neonatal Intensive Care and Paediatric Nursing
In addition to academic modules within this area, the external examiner may also be called upon to examine more generic/core modules within the CWD Framework. Though predominately at degree level, there is an increasing academic provision at Master’s level across the post qualifying programmes.
