As a result of increasing student numbers and the introduction of the MSc Global Healthcare Management Senior Leaders Apprenticeship, the School is looking to appoint two External Examiners to support its suite of UG and PG courses focusing on Leadership & Management in Health for a four-year period commencing September 2019. Coventry University offers extensive support for external examiners and holds briefing workshops annually. Further support is provided by the Course Directors and Course Administrators. The University normally expects External Examiners to attend a minimum of one examination board per year and to complete an annual External Examiner Monitoring Report.
There are a range of programmes: MBA Health Care Sector Pathway; MSc Global Healthcare Management; MSc Global Healthcare Management with Professional Experience; MSc Global Healthcare Management Senior Leaders Apprenticeship; UG Continuous Professional Development Open Framework.
The MSc programmes are solely located within the School of Nursing, Midwifery & Health, whereas delivery of the MBA programme is a collaboration between this School and Coventry Business School. The programmes are either undertaken full-time or part-time, campus-based or online. The UG Continuous Professional Development Open Framework is currently being used to deliver accredited leadership courses, to employees of the West Midlands Ambulance Service leading to the award of three levels of UG certificates in Professional Development.
Applicants are advised that the University applies the following criteria to external examiner appointments:
• Area of expertise is within the area of assessment undertaken;
• Are or should have recently been employed (or are still employed) within a university appointment;
• Must not have been a Coventry University External Examiner within the last five years;
• Have a recognized qualification in Leadership & Management and also have external examining experience.
