Salary Range:

Are you an experienced and enthusiastic Midwife looking for a new opportunity, contributing to the provision of high quality learning, teaching and assessment of midwifery students?

Working 3 days per week, a part of your role will be to maintain and establish collaborative relationships with NHS and other health care service providers and actively support both students and practice-based staff within the clinical arena.

You will possess an honours degree, and be a practicing midwife registered on the appropriate part of the NMC professional Register, with significant experience. You will also have previous experience of supporting undergraduate students. Personal development of staff is of key importance and support for an individual development programme will be offered.

The UoC Midwifery curriculum has been approved against the NMC (2019) Standards for pre-registration midwifery; a Midwife (Degree) Apprenticeship route has been approved by the NMC to commence in September 2022. You will need to work in partnership with the course team, practice staff, students and service users to deliver high quality education that is relevant to maternal health service users and their families. You will undertake a link lecturer role, and provide educational support for practice supervisors and assessors in clinical areas. A current understanding of key issues pertaining to midwifery practice and maternal and child health is therefore essential.

Working in partnership with local NHS trusts, health and social care providers, service users and carers; our Institute of Health provides initial pre-registration education for a broad range of health care professionals, including occupational therapy, diagnostic radiography, sports rehabilitation and coaching, midwifery, physiotherapy, social work, children and families, psychology, paramedic, counselling, all four fields of nursing, assistant practitioners and nursing associates. Our well-established portfolio of continuing professional development is key to workforce development and upskilling of staff who are employed within the sector. Our aim is to support the skills requirements of the region, by attracting and retaining health professionals who will provide high quality, evidence-based care in a time of change in health and social care. We are therefore seeking innovative, creative, high quality researchers, and scholars to foster a culture of exploration, discovery and intellectual challenge that generates international recognition, respect and engagement.
