The School of Nursing, Midwifery and Paramedic Practice at RGU is seeking to build upon its reputation for education, research and professional consultancy. As the Head of School, you will be at the heart of this, seeking to accelerate the pace of change, focusing on strategy and responding to the educational needs of the healthcare workforce, locally, nationally and indeed globally. The recent addition of paramedic practice to the school’s profile means it’s an excellent time to be leading a school that is growing both its profile and reputation.
The role involves working closely with health and social care partners within the statutory and third/independent sectors to ensure academic provision in terms of teaching and research addresses the current and future workforce needs. The university is committed to the development of interprofessional learning and through its wide range of courses ensures that interprofessional learning is central to all its course provision. The Head of School plays a key role in ensuring this operates at a university level as well as through the university’s partnerships with local health and social care providers.
This is a superb opportunity for a respected, ambitious leader, with appropriate professional qualifications and/or substantial, relevant experience of nurse/midwifery/paramedic education. You will inspire staff and students alike, helping them to develop within a contemporary learning environment that addresses the challenges of life-long healthcare education against a rapidly-changing background of economic and technological advancements.
