The University of Cumbria has extensive experience in delivering high quality paramedic education across the UK. Currently, we have over 1000 learners on the CPD programme with formal contracts with 9 out of the 11 English ambulance services. We also deliver the HM armed forces paramedic programme and an open access paramedic course from our Ambleside campus. This pedigree in paramedic education has led to the creation of the Centre of Excellence in Paramedic Practice (CEPP), which recently won the Preferred Provider Status for the Southern Ambulance Alliance (SWAST, SCAS, SECAMB, LAS, IoW), East of England Ambulance Service and North West Ambulance Service for paramedic degree apprenticeships. The University now has over 400 registered learners across the 6 apprenticeship programmes.

The London Ambulance Service, in conjunction with the University of Cumbria, are seeking applications for a Senior Lecturer for our London Paramedic apprenticeship programme. You will work with the London Programme Leader (SL) and the clinical lecturers to deliver the University’s BSc (Hons) in Paramedic Science to London members of staff who are undertaking the new Paramedic Science Degree Apprenticeship.

You will develop positive working relationships with NHS Trusts and other organisations. The University has previously been shortlisted for the Times Higher Education Outstanding Employer Engagement Award, and this is reflected through the collaborative working with several organisations. You will demonstrate enthusiasm for practice-based education and their specialty, and have a willingness to utilise a range of e-learning technologies and other strategies in order to affect the provision of high-quality learning opportunities and the best possible student experience.
