Lecturer in Social Work

College of Health Wellbeing&Life; Science Academic Grade 7 - £38,205 - £42,978 per annum, dependent on experience

As a Lecturer within our lively and committed team, you'll contribute to the teaching, learning and assessment of students on our undergraduate, foundation level, postgraduate and post-qualifying programmes and will have a broad remit across the subject area, in particular, in adult safeguarding, learning disabilities and multi-agency working.

Your role will include teaching preparation and delivery of social work education and research, and will involve leading modules, contributing to dissertation supervision and research and knowledge exchange. You'll also contribute to the development of new and exciting programmes and help to shape the curriculum through your professional experience and your critical, practical and theoretical understanding of social work and social care.

Qualified to degree level or equivalent, you will be registered with Social Work England (SWE) and have substantial post-qualifying social work experience. This is an excellent opportunity to further your career in a higher education setting and would be suitable for those wishing to move into higher education.

Whilst higher education teaching is not essential you will have experience of planning and delivering teaching or training and the ability to work as part of a team, as well as individually, along with experience of practice learning, for example as a practice educator.

Essentially, you will have well-developed communication and organisational skills, alongside a commitment to anti-oppressive practice. Evidence of a contribution to knowledge in your field and an interest in developing your own research interests would be an advantage.

Located within our College of Health, Wellbeing and Life Sciences, the Department of Social Work is committed to a programme of inter-professional learning, and you will join our staff members in actively contributing to teaching and research across the social work/social care agenda, both nationally and internationally.

If you are offered this post, you will be subject to an enhanced with barred lists check by the Disclosure and Barring Service.

We offer a diverse range of benefits and opportunities to pursue a rewarding and fulfilling career in a supportive environment.

You will be contractually enrolled into the Teachers' Pension Scheme (TPS) – one of the largest and most generous defined benefit pension schemes in the country. Further details on TPS can be found here: New Starter Teachers' Pensions (teacherspensions.co.uk)
