The College of Nursing, Midwifery and Healthcare delivers a range of healthcare and social work courses across Berkshire and London and has a wide range of CPD provision.

We are a supportive and collegiate team and strongly encourage individuals in their continuing professional development.

The Role

An opportunity has arisen for a dynamic, innovative social work educator to join our team of dedicated academics to support the delivery of courses in social work at UG and PG level. Our new BSocial Work (Hons) commenced in September 2021 and the successful candidate will have a key role in its delivery. We believe our new offer is ambitious and exciting and will prepare students to meet contemporary challenges in current social work practice. The team are currently developing a post-graduate offer for qualified social workers, and the successful candidate will be an integral part of this new project.

Applicants must be registered with SWE as a social worker, hold a minimum of first degree in a relevant subject and ideally hold a recognised teaching qualification for Higher Education.
