This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced Healthcare Professional or an established academic to join the Continuing Professional Development team, which sits in the School of Nursing and Midwifery. The successful candidate will join a multi-professional academic team and will have an opportunity to shape the future of post graduate continuing professional development, whilst working collaboratively with colleagues across the School and the wider University. To reflect national developments, we are encouraging applications for this role from practitioners with varied professional registration (NMC, HCPC, GPhC), for example nurses, midwives, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, pharmacists and paramedics. The role can be full time or a part time position, encouraging applications from practitioners who want to continue working in a clinical role alongside an academic role.
The post holder will teach multi-professional student cohorts across the CPD portfolio including: CPD workshops (e.g. Assessment, Frailty, Long term Conditions, Minor Illness/Injury in Children and Young people), the MSc Advanced Clinical Practice (ACP), L7 Apprenticeship in ACP, Independent and Supplementary Prescribing and PG Cert in General Practice Nursing programmes and possibly across the School. They will lead agreed modules; assess students and supervise students’ MSc research projects. The post holder will be committed to promoting academic enquiry that develops critical thinking in students; supporting safe, effective and evidence-based decision making, whilst developing expertise that supports existing and more established roles in health and social care settings.
Staff within the CPD team have a growing scholarly, research and publication profile and are committed to building on previous achievements in learning, teaching and research. New appointees will be supported to develop in their new role with access to a mentor, staff development courses and the opportunity to work on local, regional and national projects.
The post holder may be required to contribute their expert knowledge by teaching across modules within the School of Nursing and Midwifery. The School of Nursing and Midwifery upholds the overall mission of the University by providing high quality, accessible learning opportunities, promoting academic enquiry and the advancement of knowledge. Service user and carer involvement in course development and delivery is an increasingly important aspect of our work, as is inter-professional and interagency working.
