- To provides exam invigilation for the written aspect of the EPA
- To undertake the professional discussion aspect of the EPA with the apprentices.
- To mark and moderate these assessments to pre-set requirements and under the direction of the senior academic staff.
- To assess apprentices in a practical capacity as in an Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) format.
- To complete all documentation and records related to the EPA
- To teach on a variety of modules when required to support pre-registration nursing courses
The post is at the level of Lecturer and is a full time post divided between assessing on the EPA and some teaching, assessing and marking responsibilities on the pre-registration nursing courses.
For the EPA, there will be a requirement to travel to other institutions to deliver the EPA and this may involve overnight stays.
Applicants will need to hold current NMC registration in their area of expertise.
Successful applicants will be offered training to enable them to fulfil the requirements of the EPA process and will be expected to complete University mandatory training.
