The School of Health and Social Work at the University of Hertfordshire has a long-established reputation as a centre for excellence for healthcare education. 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.

You will support the development and assessment of clinical and procedural skills through simulated learning in line with the NMC Standards of Proficiency (2018). This role involves coordinating clinical skills and simulation teaching within the nursing curriculum. This includes designing and delivering skills teaching, simulation scenarios, and practical assessments. 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.

Current registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council and good knowledge of the NMC Standards of Proficiency (2018) is critical. Experience of facilitating the teaching of clinical skills in acute and/or community settings as well as evidence of designing educational resources is key to this role. At Senior Lecturer level you will be expected to have proven experience in the use of a range of simulation equipment and prebriefing and debriefing techniques. You will be able to demonstrate evidence of teamworking and working autonomously as well as having excellent written and verbal communication skills.

You will be a Registered Nurse with the NMC and hold an Honours Degree (2:2 or above) or equivalent, or higher level qualification in a relevant subject area. A teaching qualification or willingness to undertake a qualification is essential. For the Senior Lecturer post, a Master’s Degree or a Level 7 qualification such as a PgDip is essential as well as evidence of CPD in relation to simulation based education.
