Description

Whether you simply wish to support the development of the next generation of Paramedics - or are also seeking broader academic opportunties in a thriving university - this is the role for you!

Based in the Faculty of Health, the School of Health Professions has something for everyone interested in health and care-related professions and is committed to shaping our students into the best health professionals they can be. The School offers a unique interdisciplinary learning environment, where students can benefit from excellent skills and research laboratories, research-informed teaching, stimulating practice placements and teaching delivered by professionally registered academic staff. The School is proud of the commitment to student voluntary work, staff–student partnership, strong professional values and our record of student achievement and student satisfaction. State-of-the-art facilities and equipment help students maximise their potential and develop their core skills, preparing them to embark on exciting and rewarding careers. The School holds an Athena SWAN Bronze award demonstrating the University's ongoing commitment to advancing gender equality and success for all.

We are looking for an enthusiastic individual to join the well-established, progressive Paramedic team at the University of Plymouth. Working within the team provides a unique opportunity to contribute to teaching, learning and research within the Paramedic Science degree.

Our philosophy focuses on developing contemporary autonomous practitioners who have high quality professional and life-long learning skills.

The approach to learning is skills development based on sound theoretical knowledge.

We enjoy a strong partnership approach to inter-professional learning; therefore, a number of modules throughout the undergraduate programme are shared with a range of professional groups.

The research potential within the School is extensive as we have collaboration possibilities within the Faculty of Health as well as other faculties at the university.

The School of Health Professions is primarily situated in purpose built high quality accommodation in the Peninsula Allied Health Centre, which is based within the campus of the University of St Mark & St John (Marjon). The paramedic team also have access to a ‘skills building' at Plymouth Science Park. We also use a range of facilities in the main campus on the Drake Circus site. There are advanced plans to relocate the School and all of its teaching activities to the main campus during 2023.

As a lecturer at the University of Plymouth, you will contribute to the high quality education and support of paramedic students and encourage the generation of knowledge through research. The position will require teaching and assessment at all stages of undergraduate and potentially postgraduate study. One of the strengths of our Faculty is the interprofessional learning opportunities for students, so you may be required to teach across the disciplines of the School of Health Professions and wider Faculty of Health. Practice-based learning is at the heart of the programme and we anticipate the candidate will be heavily involved in supporting practice placement activity.

You will be a registered professional with appropriate academic and/or professional experience, preferably from a paramedicine or nursing background, or other appropriate profession. You will have an in-depth understanding of contemporary emergency and urgent care provision and be committed to quality education and research.

You will value your own professional development and ideally hold, or be working towards a higher degree qualification.

Please demonstrate how you meet the essential criteria outlined in the knowledge, qualifications, training and experience elements of the job description in your supporting statement.

For an informal discussion to find out more about the role then please contact Tristan Henderson: by email at tristan.henderson@plymouth.ac.uk

This role will require an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service Check plus Adult and Children Barred List checks.

You must currently be registered with the following registration board: Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC): excluding social workers in England.

Interviews are likely to take place on Thursday, 13 October 2022 and you will be notified if you have been shortlisted or not.

This is a full-time position working 37 hours per week on a permanent basis.

Flexible working options including job share will be considered.

We offer a competitive salary package and a generous pension and holiday scheme. We also offer a range of other benefits, including ongoing development opportunities.

The Faculty of Health holds a Silver Athena Swan Award and the University holds a Bronze Athena SWAN Award which recognises commitment to advancing women's careers in STEMM academia.

Staff appointed within the Faculty of Health may be able to join the NHS pension scheme subject to eligibility criteria.

The University of Plymouth has a strong interdisciplinary research ethos which is supported by our three strategic Research Institutes; the Marine Institute, the Sustainable Earth Institute, and the Plymouth Institute of Health and Care Research. As a member of our academic community, you'll be expected to contribute to our recognised research strengths. Working holistically across the University, you will be challenged to innovate, collaborate and deliver impactful research contributions as part of a systems thinking approach to addressing today's global challenges.

The University of Plymouth is a diverse, welcoming community where everyone makes a difference and is encouraged to bring their whole selves to work. To find out more about our inclusive community, initiatives such as Athena Swan and the Race Equality Charter and our range of benefits / support mechanisms such as flexible working, staff networks and enhanced maternity, paternity & adoption leave please visit our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion webpages

We particularly welcome applicants from under-represented groups such as BAME/BIPOC and LGBT+
