Closing Date:
8 Feb 2016
Salary Range:

Sitting within the Faculty of Health, Education and Life Sciences, The Department of Mental Health and Learning Disabilities is a vibrant and supportive department engaging with approximately 500 mental health and learning disability undergraduate and post-qualifying nurses. The team also provides teaching input for adult and child nurses, midwives, speech and language therapists, operating department personnel and social workers, and has a focussed and growing research output.

The department seeks to recruit to the post of teaching fellow in learning disabilities nursing. The postholder will support the development of the learning, teaching and assessment of modules on a range of foundation, degree and post registration health-related courses, predominantly the BSc (Hons) nursing programme across all four fields.

Applicants will hold at least a Postgraduate Diploma or Master’s degree in a Health related subject and demonstrate on-going personal and professional development and appropriate study around relevant subject matter. Applicants must also hold current registration with the NMC as a Registered Learning Disabilities Nurse (Sub Part 1 of the register). Previous teaching in a Higher Education setting would be desirable, but the successful applicants would be offered a place on the University’s highly regarded Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching in Higher Education Programme.

Our BSc (Hons) Nursing RN programme has been approved under the NMC standards, and as a school we pride ourselves on constantly developing cutting edge teaching methods and ways of working in partnership with our students and local stakeholders
