External Examiner needed for BA Early Years Development and Learning (EYDL) at Norland College

Norland College is a small, independent provider of Higher Education, based in the beautiful city of Bath. Our BA EYDL degree is validated by the University of Gloucestershire, although we are currently undergoing QAA scrutiny in our application to gain our own Taught Degree Awarding Powers. We are looking for an External Examiner for our degree course, to start in September 2018. Appointments are usually for a 4 year period and will begin with employment by the University of Gloucestershire, transferring to Norland College if we are successful in our TDAP application. The External Examiner is expected to sample assessment instruments and student work, comment on any proposed minor or major modifications, meet with students and academic staff, attend Boards of Examiners at Norland College and produce a detailed annual report.

For further details about the College and/or our programmes, please visit www.norland.ac.uk.

If interested, please send your CV to Lisa Harrison at lisa.harrison@norland.ac.uk.

These are set up as necessary to work on specific issues, including quality assurance, research and development issues. Previous working groups developed the ECS degrees with Practitioner Options and the QAA ECS subject benchmark.
