The Assessment Administrator will be a team member of the Assessment Department within the Learning Directorate of the College. This is an exciting time to join the College to support and maintain a brand new Learning Environment for Pathology Trainees (LEPT), an ePortfolio which is designed to capture trainees’ progress during training.
This role supports the effective administrative running of the LEPT system, acting as a first point of contact for its users which includes pathology trainees, consultants, assessors and deanery/Local Education Training Board (LETB) administrative staff around the UK.
The Assessment Administrator has responsibility for dealing with all initial enquiries from LEPT users on both platforms via telephone and/or email in a consistent and timely manner. The Assessment Administrator will have administration access to the back end of the LEPT system in order to investigate and correct simple and complex issues. The Assessment Administrator will be an effective communicator with good written and verbal skills with a demonstrable ability to communicate effectively with a wide range of people.
The new LEPT platform was launched in September 2021. It runs concurrently with the existing platform which will be phased out in 2023.
Pathology is at the heart of modern healthcare. Pathologists work to prevent, diagnose, treat and monitor diseases and are involved in the diagnosis of disorders affecting every organ of the body, from before birth to after death. The majority of tests requested by doctors will be performed and interpreted by a clinical scientist or medically qualified pathologist.
The Royal College of Pathologists is a professional membership organisation with approximately 12,000 members who are doctors and scientists working in hospitals, universities and laboratories in the UK and overseas. We work with pathologists at every stage of their career – from setting curricula, organising training and running exams, to approving job descriptions, publishing best-practice guidance and providing continuing professional development.
We offer attractive staff benefits including 25 days annual leave rising with length of service, enhanced employer contributions to pension scheme, an employee discount scheme, and season ticket loans, as well as a cycle to work scheme. The College values diversity, welcoming applications for all members of society.
The closing date for applications is 9am, Monday 7 February 2022.
