We are looking for an outstanding individual to contribute to the delivery of our highly successful Advanced Programmes in Pharmacy Practice and Therapeutics (AP3T) suite of courses, including the recently accredited Advanced Clinical Practitioner (ACP) MSc pathway.
About the role:
This post will focus specifically on the delivery of the Secondary Care diploma programme but may also be required to contribute to other courses across the department and also support the teaching of other healthcare professionals.
The Secondary Care programme is highly regarded and delivers high quality teaching of clinical and consultation skills to pharmacists in practice.
The successful individual will be keen to combine their expert professional practice with a desire to develop others through the application of their teaching and learning skills.
This appointment will work within an experienced team to support the teaching and learning of our postgraduate students across a range of units.
The successful individual would be required to cover a range of face to face and online teaching activities and support assessment, evaluation and pastoral support for students.
This post is a 1-year (fixed-term maternity cover) 0.4 FTE.
We welcome applicants who wish to do this as a part-time role, those who wish to maintain a clinical/alternative commitment in their non-University hours or also those who may wish for support in looking for partner organisations to make this post full time.
For more information about the role, please contact Tim Rennie, Director of Taught Postgraduate Programmes, ([email protected]) or Clare Hughes, Programme Lead – Secondary Care Diploma ([email protected]).
The ideal candidate for this role would be someone who is exploring their career as a pharmacist in relation to teaching and learning in the context of clinical practice.
This position will enable the successful candidate to gain experience in academia for further progression as opportunities arise, particularly in relation to recent accreditation of the Advanced Clinical Practitioner MSc training pathway that the University of Bath can now provide.
The successful candidate for this position must be a team player and a GPhC- registered pharmacist with significant experience in clinical practice, ideally evidenced by a relevant postgraduate qualification (e.g. MSc/Diploma in clinical pharmacy or higher education teaching qualification).
Annotation with GPhC as an Independent Prescriber would also be an asset. They will need to have teaching experience (e.g. in a clinical or academic context) and be a subject-matter expert in their field.
The ideal candidate would be engaging in their communication, innovative in their teaching/training approach, highly organised and adaptable, and take responsibility for their work that will involve collaboration with a range of team members.
The ability to reflect and learn how to improve is critical to the role.
