A bit about School of Health & Society.

Our School of Health & Society is one of the largest providers of nursing, midwifery, social work and allied health professional education programmes in the UK, known for our track record of collaborating with a wide range of industry partners across health and social care to produce highly skilled graduates with real work experience. We are at an interesting time in the Higher Education sector, there is significant change in terms of oversight, student expectations and changing demographics and we are trying to do things differently so that we stay ahead of these changes.

The School of Health and Society is now looking for a Lecturer with passion for developing apprenticeships to join the team leading the Nursing Associate Foundation Degree Higher Apprenticeship programme.

  • Lead a team of Clinical Educators taking responsibility for ensuring University, apprenticeship and professional body regulations and requirements are met.
  • Work collaboratively with employers to maintain and improve our existing high quality apprenticeship provision whilst also developing wider employer partnerships to support growth in this area.
  • Contribute to our thinking and be challenging on how Salford can transform the way it addresses equity disparities, embraces diversity and becomes more inclusive.
  • Foster the development of an inclusive community, using teaching approaches which encourage inclusivity, working in partnership with students to improve their sense of belonging, diversifying the curriculum and using approaches to inclusive assessment to close the award gap.

You will have an understanding of the apprenticeship quality standards and funding requirements and be able to lead by example and support the Programme team to deliver knowledge, skills and develop professional behaviours through education at University and in the clinical areas.
