Location:
We are looking to appoint a confident, enthusiastic and forward thinking clinical educator to support delivery of our multi- disciplinary programmes in Urgent, Emergency and Critical Care, in the beautiful South West of England. Our nationally recognised programmes attract medical students from across the UK, who take a year out of their existing medical degree, to join the University as full time students. Their learning experience is shared by qualified clinicians from a range of healthcare professions, including Nursing and Paramedicine, who choose to study part time at degree or masters level. This is an exciting opportunity to assist the delivery of inter-professional learning, contributing to the academic and clinical development of our students, in a small programme team within an innovative school. You will also have opportunity to contribute to research within the school through one of many research active groups, aligned to clinical schools within local NHS Trusts. You must be a registered healthcare professional (General Medical Council, Nursing and Midwifery Council, Health and Care Professions Council), with a Degree in a health related subject. Current experience in an acute discipline, for example pre-hospital, emergency, critical or perioperative care, is also required. Having experience supporting students with teaching, learning and assessment will be useful, along with a teaching qualification. If you do not have a teaching qualification you must be willing to work towards achieving this, with our support. The unique nature of our programme will require you to travel throughout the academic year, visiting students and their mentors in placement locations across the United Kingdom. This will include some overnight stays, with an annual travel commitment in the region of 15 days (3 weeks). As this is a part-time position, we welcome applications from practising clinicians who are looking to develop their educational expertise, alongside their clinical portfolio. This vacancy will involve working with children and/or vulnerable adults, and any appointment will be subject to a Disclosure and Barring Service check.

Location:
Innovative Senior Leader needed for the University of Exeter Academy of Nursing The University of Exeter is seeking to appoint an outstanding nurse who will deliver leadership of the highest quality to Exeter’s fast developing, pioneering and unique Academy of Nursing. Exeter is the first UK research-intensive Russell Group University this century to simultaneously develop completely new and unique programmes of nursing education and research. With our clinical and patient colleagues, we have set up the University of Exeter Academy of Nursing to pioneer novel research methods, innovative teaching and develop the knowledge base to lead nursing in the 21st century. We are building our team and are seeking a new permanent, full time Professor and Head of Nursing with the vison to match ours, who will lead the Academy in the next phase of our expansion of nursing research and education. Although we are looking for an established senior leader in nursing, we recognise that such people are in very short supply worldwide. Therefore, we would also consider applications from people in mid-career, with a significant research and education background, who we could support into the new role here on the understanding that the candidate would already be on a steep trajectory to excellence. As a research-intensive University in the top ten of UK institutions, Exeter is surrounded by spectacular beaches and countryside and yet only around two hours by train from London. It is a wonderful place to live and work. The University is an international University with around a third of our academic staff body of non-British nationality.
