New opportunity! – Senior lecturer in Paramedic Apprenticeships

Could you be the Senior lecturer in Paramedic Apprenticeships (Partnership secondment with SWAST)?

*The application deadline has been extended to 23:59 16/08/20

The University of Cumbria has extensive experience in delivering high quality paramedic education across the UK. Currently we have over 600 learners on the CPD programme with formal contracts with 9 out of the 11 English ambulance services. We also currently deliver the HM armed forces paramedic programme and an open access paramedic course from our Ambleside campus. This pedigree in paramedic education has led to the creation of the Centre of Excellence in Paramedic Practice, which recently won the Preferred Provider Status for the Southern Ambulance Alliance (SWAST, SCAS, SECAMB, LAS, IoW) and North West Ambulance Service.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a highly motivated team developing and leading the delivery of Paramedic Apprenticeship Degree Programmes in the South of England. There will be a requirement to contribute to other programmes within the Centre of Excellence in Paramedic Practice, especially those relating to paramedic and pre-hospital and emergency care provision. The support of students within clinical placements will also form a significant part of your role.

You will develop positive working relationships with NHS Trusts and other organisations. The University has previously been shortlisted for the Times Higher Education Outstanding Employer Engagement Award and this is reflected in the fact that close collaborative working with a number of organisations is a key requirement of the role.

You will demonstrate enthusiasm for practice-based education and their specialty, and have a willingness to utilise a range of e-learning technologies and other strategies in order to effect the provision of high quality learning opportunities and the best possible student experience.

We are seeking innovative, creative, high quality researchers, and scholars to foster a culture of exploration, discovery and intellectual challenge that generates international recognition, respect and engagement.
