The College of Nursing, Midwifery and Healthcare

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 have excellent partnerships with many healthcare and social care organisations across the NHS, Social Services and in the private, voluntary, and independent sector. 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.

The Person

The successful candidate will have excellent social work knowledge and experience. An excellent appreciation of the SWE (2019) Professional Standards and SWE Education and Training Standards (2021) is essential. Candidates should demonstrate effective interpersonal and communication skills to work collaboratively with students, other academics, social work practitioners, and with our support and technical staff. You will be expected to assist in the development and delivery of learning materials that are relevant, evidence-based, and current, to maintain the high quality of learning and teaching associated with the college.

Applicants must be registered with SWE as a social worker, hold a minimum of a first degree in a relevant subject and ideally hold a recognised teaching qualification for Higher Education. For successful applicants of the Lecturer role without relevant teaching qualifications, they will join the UWL Academic Professional degree Apprenticeship scheme (APA) supporting the UK government's commitment to upskill the UK workforce. Applicants for the Senior Lecturer role must hold a PGCert or equivalent before appointment.
