The School has an excellent reputation for teaching and research in health and social care. Our academic members of staff include occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, psychological therapists, nurses, social workers, oral health practitioners and sociologists. The School is run over two campuses, based at Southend and Colchester. Academic staff are supported by a team of administrative staff based at both Colchester and Southend campuses.

We are at the forefront of preparing people to solve real-life issues in health and society, offering courses and research that both commissioners and employers believe in. People are at the heart of all we do. We work in partnership with various people, who offer us their expertise and experience, making us a team of people who truly understand what is needed from health and social care professionals and services– now and in the future.

The School is currently going through exciting changes and expansion, with an increase in student numbers, an intention to prepare for submission to Unit Assessment 3 (research focusing on Allied Health Professions, Dentistry, Nursing and Pharmacy) for the next Research Excellence Framework (REF), and the introduction of new courses, including the new Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner Apprenticeship, and Masters in Global Public Health. We are also expanding and building new and innovative areas for student study, including new clinical skills spaces specifically for our Occupational Therapy students, consultation rooms and study areas.

As part of this exciting expansion, we are now looking to appoint a Lecturer in PWP on a part-time basis. This post will require management, administration and organisation alongside support of students on our existing programmes, and generally enhancing our research-led teaching in PWP.
