We are specifically seeking to appoint an external examiner with HCPC registration and an understanding of the standards for Education and Training, and the proficiencies for Paramedics in accordance with HCPC regulation.

External Examiners are typically placed on the Edge Hill University External Examiners Register for a period of four years. Principle duties normally include;

  • Visit the University at the least once a year to moderate assessed coursework and examination scripts
  • Attend module assessment boards
  • Produce an Annual Report
  • Review and approve examination papers that contribute to a student’s final award, and any other assessment material as agreed
  • External Examiners are also invited to engage with students in practice
  • He/she will have excellent underpinning knowledge of the Standards for Nurse Education (Adult) NMC requirements and/or the Standards for Education (HCPC) and Training and HCPC proficiencies for Paramedics.
  • Ideally, one external with a working knowledge of both standards would be accepted, however we would also encourage two external examiners with specialist knowledge in either area to apply.
  • Should two external examiners be appointed there will be a requirement to collaboratively work with one another to provide the above support for the programme quality standards.
