    proctorship and preceptorship

    Hi,

    could you please tell me what the terms "proctorship" and "preceptorship" mean? It is used in a job description in the following context:

    The sales assistant and customer program specialist shall support managers and sales representatives in the administrative requirements of their duties (sponsorships, donations, proctorships, preceptorships etc.)

    Thank you very much.

    The only context in which I've met proctor and preceptor was at Cambridge; they were honorific titles for largely ceremonial positions in the university. I'm not sure how this fits in with your context.

    (I presume you've met the suffix -ship. If not, Online Etymology Dictionary )
