External Examiner for BA (Hons) Dance and Performance, Bucks New University, High Wycombe

Dear Colleagues

We are looking for an external examiner to replace our outgoing external, for our successful and unique BA (Hons) Dance and Performance programme, at Bucks New University, High Wycombe, Bucks. The role is for four years, and candidates will need to be available for the academic year start this September.

We are looking for an external examiner who has knowledge, expertise and a proven track record in the dance and performance sector, with HE quality assurance experience, and appropriate academic qualifications in a relevant discipline (BA and MA minimum). Having experience of external examining is desirable, but if you don’t have this, but have professional expertise in some of the following: a range of dance genres and techniques, dance teaching, the study of dance performance,  entrepreneurship and dance, and professional practice in dance, please do apply, as we have a mentoring scheme for externals who are new to the process.

You will be required to attend an exam board, moderation day, and at least one practical student assessment event.

If you are interested in this position, please could you send an email stating your experience, and an up to date CV –  please send this to me atLois.Drawmer@bucks.ac.uk

Deadline for expressions of interest/CVs is Friday 15th January. I will contact all candidates to let you know the decision on Friday 30th January.

Best Wishes
