External Examiner Vacancy

Collaborative Validated Model 
(BSc Dental Nursing, New College Lanarkshire)

The University of the West of Scotland is currently seeking to appoint a Degree Assessment Board External Examiner for our collaborative, validated BSc Dental Nursing programme which commenced in September 2017.  New College Lanarkshire (Coatbridge campus), in partnership with the University of the West of Scotland are  providing a 2 year, part-time, top-up Bachelor of Science degree to meet the professional driver extended role demands of dental nurse preparation. 

It is expected that candidates will have extensive knowledge and experience of dental practice and higher education.  A brief overview of the programme is detailed below -

The General Dental Council’s (GDC) Scope of Practice has increased and expanded the legislative range of duties that a dental nurse can perform. This change has resulted in the dental nurse enhancing their clinical role by being more involved with patient care; this extends from supporting treatment planning to the management and prevention of oral disease. The BSc Dental Nursing programme will offer graduate education to meet the needs of local and national markets as well as the growing public demand for specialised treatments. It will also have relevance to the international market due to the transferability of clinical and theoretical knowledge and skills which can be contextualised to individual country requirements. 

This cutting edge dental nursing programme facilitates the development of professional and intellectual abilities that are underpinned by evidence-based learning. It will serve to develop the student’s ability to respond to the dynamic dental and health needs of the populations in an analytical and innovative way. The modules are designed to encourage the student to develop critical and analytical competence and graduate attributes.

The BSc Dental Nursing programme encompasses the following modules:

SCQF Level 9
20 credit Research in Dental Practice
20 credit Dental Nurse-Specialist Skills
20 credit Oral Health Promotion
20 credit Technology in Dentistry
20 credit Leadership in Dental Practice
20 credit Professional Development

This is an exciting opportunity to be involved in a new programme and indeed the first of its kind in the UK. 

Detail on the remit of the DAB External Examiner is available can be found in the External Examiner Handbook, available from our website at:
