We are looking to appoint a confident, enthusiastic and forward thinking clinical educator to support delivery of our multi- disciplinary programmes in Urgent, Emergency and Critical Care, in the beautiful South West of England.

Our nationally recognised programmes attract medical students from across the UK, who take a year out of their existing medical degree, to join the University as full time students. Their learning experience is shared by qualified clinicians from a range of healthcare professions, including Nursing and Paramedicine, who choose to study part time at degree or masters level. This is an exciting opportunity to assist the delivery of inter-professional learning, contributing to the academic and clinical development of our students, in a small programme team within an innovative school. You will also have opportunity to contribute to research within the school through one of many research active groups, aligned to clinical schools within local NHS Trusts.

You must be a registered healthcare professional (General Medical Council, Nursing and Midwifery Council, Health and Care Professions Council), with a Degree in a health related subject. Current experience in an acute discipline, for example pre-hospital, emergency, critical or perioperative care, is also required. Having experience supporting students with teaching, learning and assessment will be useful, along with a teaching qualification. If you do not have a teaching qualification you must be willing to work towards achieving this, with our support.

The unique nature of our programme will require you to travel throughout the academic year, visiting students and their mentors in placement locations across the United Kingdom. This will include some overnight stays, with an annual travel commitment in the region of 15 days (3 weeks). As this is a part-time position, we welcome applications from practising clinicians who are looking to develop their educational expertise, alongside their clinical portfolio.

This vacancy will involve working with children and/or vulnerable adults, and any appointment will be subject to a Disclosure and Barring Service check.

For an informal discussion please contact Pam Nelmes (Programme Lead) or Dr Blair Graham (Lecturer in Emergency Care) at emergencyandcriticalcare@plymouth.ac.uk. Please include ‘Lecturer (Clinical Intercalation): Emergency, Urgent, Critical and Surgical Care’ in the e-mail subject line.

This is a part-time position working 18.5 hours per week on a permanent basis.

We anticipate interviews will be held via the web, during the week beginning August 24th 2020.

A relocation package is available with this role.

Please note, due to the COVID-19 pandemic the University is currently implementing a number of safety measures as per Government advice therefore the successful applicant may be required to work from home in the first instance.

The University of Plymouth is committed to equality of opportunity, promoting a diverse and inclusive culture, demonstrated through our commitment to the gender equality Athena SWAN Charter and as a Stonewall diversity champion. All applications will be judged solely on merit, however, we particularly welcome applications from groups currently under-represented in the workforce, for example black and minority ethnic groups.

University of Plymouth holds a TEF (Teaching Excellence and Student Outcomes Framework) Silver by the Office for Students.
