External Examiner Vacancy – Midwifery

Opening Date:
30 Jan 2017
Closing Date:
17 Mar 2017
Salary Range:

We are seeking an external examiner for our 3 year and shortened Pre-Registration Midwifery programmes with effect from September 2017 for four years and will be allocated to review modules on both programmes. In 2016 we implemented the pan London Midwifery Practice Assessment Document (PAD) and have established the examination of the newborn modules in our Pre-Registration Midwifery programmes. Inter-professional learning is valued with specific modules in years one and three (in the 3 year programme). Our programmes are supported by a range of virtual learning, blended learning and assessment environments including specifically designed skills laboratories.

External examiners have remote access to programmes and modules through the VLE to view content and track progress of their allocated modules. Non-electronic aspects e.g. practice documents are available on the morning examination boards. All external examiners are invited to attend assessments i.e. OSCEs, professional discussions and group presentations. You will be required to view a selection of scripts for designated modules and complete a module external examiner report. At the end of year an annual report is required. Examination Boards are held four times a year in February, May, July and September. It is recommended that external examiners attend, particularly for first sit modules boards and final programme boards. In addition you will also be required to undertake a practice visit.

Please send your curriculum vitae and a short statement of your expression of interest to Carole Yearley, Lead Midwife Education at c.yearley@herts.ac.uk or call Carole on 07872 417085 for an informal discussion. The successful applicant will be invited to attend an external examiner’s workshop prior to commencing the post where you will meet the Programme Leaders who will provide you with programme documents and information.
