Our vision is to transform lives through our education, research and community engagement activities. We are seeking a Lecturer / Senior Lecturer in Clinical Skills to support the provision of high-quality training to our students.

Main duties & responsibilities

All our lecturers participate in recruitment, teaching, support, and assessment of students (including pre-registration (BSc and MSc Programmes), student nursing associates and qualified nurses) on a range of modules. You will work with module teams to ensure an engaging, safe, and contemporary learning experience.

Skills and experience needed
Current registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council and good knowledge of the NMC Standards of Proficiency (2018) is critical, with an understanding of how they are relevant to skills teaching. Experience of facilitating the teaching of clinical skills in acute and/or community settings as well as evidence of designing educational resources and / or sessions for skills teaching is key.

At Senior Lecturer level you will be expected to have experience in simulation-based teaching methods; evidence of the use of a range of simulation equipment and prebriefing and debriefing techniques is desirable. You will be able to demonstrate evidence of teamworking and working autonomously as well as having excellent written and verbal communication skills.
