Opening Date:
22 Oct 2021
Closing Date:
21 Nov 2021
Salary Range:

We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic practitioner who can drive curriculum development around learning disabilities, autism and mental health within the Advanced Clinical Practice and CPD programmes.

We are encouraging applications for this role from practitioners with professional registration (NMC, HCPC), and can offer full time or part time (minimum 0.6WTE) for successful candidates who want to continue working in a clinical role alongside developing an academic role.

The successful candidate will join a multi-professional academic team within the Department of Midwifery and Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and will have an opportunity to shape the future digital approaches of post-graduate education, whilst working collaboratively with colleagues across the School and the wider University.

The post holder will teach multi-professional student cohorts across the CPD portfolio (depending on their clinical expertise) such as: the MSc Advanced Clinical Practice (ACP), L7 Apprenticeship in ACP, Independent and Supplementary Prescribing, and PG Cert in General Practice Nursing programmes; CPD workshops. In collaboration with the CPD team they will develop digital learning strategies; lead agreed modules; assess students and supervise students’ MSc research projects. The post holder will be committed to promoting digital capabilities; academic enquiry that develops critical thinking in students; supporting safe, effective and evidence-based decision making, whilst developing expertise that supports existing and more established roles in health and social care settings.

Staff within the CPD team have a growing scholarly, research and publication profile and are committed to building on previous achievements in learning, teaching and research. New appointees will be supported to develop in their new teaching role with access to a mentor and staff development courses.

The post holder may be required to contribute their expert knowledge by teaching across modules within the Three Counties School of Nursing and Midwifery. The Three Counties School of Nursing and Midwifery upholds the overall mission of the University by providing high quality, accessible learning opportunities, promoting academic enquiry and the advancement of knowledge. Service user and carer involvement in course development and delivery is an increasingly important aspect of our work, as is inter-professional and interagency working.
