External Examiner opportunities for Social Work programmes

The MA, BA and StepUp Social Work programmes at the University of Birmingham are each seeking External Examiners to commence the role for the 2021-22 and 2022-23 academic years. 

The Social Work programmes comprise theoretical, academic and practice learning. Successful completion leads to a professional and academic award which entitles the student to register as a qualified social worker. Read more information about our programmes.

We are seeking academics with suitable experience, you must be a qualified and registered social worker and, preferably, have a PhD with a knowledge and experience of the professional standards for social work. The appointees would be expected to moderate a range of modules. Examiners are required to attend at least one board each year and to be available to review assessment material electronically at points throughout the year. Further information on the role of an external examiner at UoB can be found on our intranet site.
