Welcome to the School – a forward-thinking, dynamic school with a commitment to lifelong learning and real world impact. We are one of the largest educators of nurses, midwives, social work, allied health and psychologist professionals in the North West, known for our track record of collaborating with a wide range of industry partners across health and social care to produce highly skilled graduates, with real work life experience. The University of Salford has a rich history and an exciting future; we sit at the heart of the Northern Powerhouse, and actively engage with stakeholders across the region to address the health outcomes arising from the devolution of power to Greater Manchester’s local authorities. We have always been committed to addressing the needs and aspirations of our local community.
The Subject area of Sport is part of the Directorate of Psychology and Sport. Research conducted by the Sport group focuses on performance and rehabilitation, notably relating to kinetic and kinetic assessment of movement. We are committed to advancing the understanding of human performance and rehabilitation and sit within the Centre for Health Sciences Research in the School of Health and Society (https://www.salford.ac.uk/research/research-centres/centre-health-sciences-research).
Our track record includes partnerships with many sports teams and organisations, allied to our clinical reach. The Directorate has active partnerships with other Schools across the University as well as with Salford City College and the British University of Bahrain.
The School of Health and Society is pleased to offer an opportunity for grade 7 (Teaching and Learning Fellow) role in Sport Rehabilitation to support our very successful UG programme. This will support the learning, teaching and research of the thematic area. There will also be an expectation to undertake project supervision, and personal tutoring.
We recognise that to create an inspirational, inclusive learning, research and working environment we need to be celebrating the diversity of our University community in our everyday conversations. We are proud that our School student profile is ethnically diverse with 28% of our students coming from a Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) background and it’s important for us to create an inclusive culture where all our students and colleagues can bring their whole selves to the University. It is important to us that our students see themselves reflected in those who teach them, and that higher education is a place where they can thrive.
We recognise that our colleague profile is not as diverse as it should be particularly looking at the representation of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) colleagues and have developed strategies to address this. We are a members of the AdvanceHE Race Equality Charter and hold a bronze Institutional and School Athena SWAN award. We operate a guaranteed interview scheme for job applicants who declare they have a disability and meet the essential criteria of the job they are applying for. We make every effort to support disabled colleagues by providing them with equipment or making reasonable adjustments to support them in their career journey.
