This part-time role will be 18.5 hours per week, based at our Telford Campus.

You will teach primarily across modules on the pre-registration paramedic programme that has been written to support the West Midlands Ambulance Service student paramedic pathway. You may also be asked to teach on relevant post-registration CPD courses.

You will be educated to a minimum of a Bachelor’s degree level or equivalent and preferably have completed, or be willing to work towards, a Masters qualification and a post-graduate certificate in education. You will hold current registration with the HCPC or the NMC and have significant clinical experience in paramedic practice or an urgent/emergency care setting. Experience of teaching in a clinical or academic setting is essential and candidates with a research profile are welcomed. Dedication to innovative teaching and research activities within paramedic practice are also a requirement of the post, in order to contribute towards the paramedic portfolio and the profile of the faculty.
