Are you interested in helping to teach, shape and develop the next generation of Paramedics?

The University of Cumbria has extensive experience in delivering high quality paramedic education across the UK. Currently we have over 1000 learners on CPD programmes with formal contracts with 9 out of the 11 English ambulance services, as well as an open access paramedic course at our Lancaster 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 900 registered learners across the 6 apprenticeship programmes.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a highly motivated team developing and leading the delivery of the open access BSc (Hons) Paramedic Science programme from our Lancaster campus. There will be requirement to contribute to other programmes within the Centre of Excellence in Paramedic Practice, especially those relating to paramedic and pre-hospital and emergency care provision. The support of students within clinical placements will also be a significant part of the role.

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.

We are seeking innovative, creative, high quality researchers, and scholars to foster a culture of exploration, discovery and intellectual challenge that generates international recognition, respect and engagement.
