Assistant Lecturer in Paramedic Science

Opening Date:
11 Feb 2019
Closing Date:
19 Mar 2019
Salary Range:

The School of Nursing, Midwifery and Health are seeking to recruit an enthusiastic and ambitious HCPC registered Paramedic to join our dynamic team of academics delivering excellent and visionary paramedic courses at undergraduate level.

This post represents a development opportunity for a registered paramedic who wishes for an academic career but may have limited teaching experience. The successful applicant will be facilitated to complete the Postgraduate Certificate in Higher Education and an appropriate level 6 degree (if not already achieved). The successful applicant will be expected to focus initially upon clinical skills teaching (both theoretical and practical), but will be supported to diversify into the full range of academic delivery as they gain experience. With the qualifications and development opportunities available, the successful post-holder will be in an excellent position to apply for future Lecturer and Senior Lecturer positions when available.

The school of Nursing, Midwifery and Health are proud of the diversity and range of the paramedic courses provided, which are shortly to be complimented by a newly validated BSc (Hons) Paramedic Science. Coventry University is also placed 13th in the UK University league tables (The Guardian University Guide 2019) and recently received a gold TEF rating signifying, ‘consistently outstanding teaching learning and outcomes’ (Office for Students, 2018). Our paramedic teaching provision is also one of the most established and highly regarded in the country, and we work collaboratively with a wide range of health care professions within the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences. We also now have the benefit of the new, ‘state of the art’ health science simulation facilities; an investment which includes a bespoke clinical skills labs and an ambulance simulator.
