Closing Date: Sunday 24 March 2024

In the School of Sport and Health Sciences have been producing the next generation of paramedics for a decade, and are well-established and highly regarded within our school where we provide a stimulating environment for staff and students.

In your new role, you will have the opportunity to be part of a creative team, embedding innovative teaching and simulation opportunities on the Falmer campus. You will be working as part of a team who focus on enhancing the student experience and will share in the co-creation and delivery of this innovative programme.  You should understand and be able to support a range of assessments and clinical practice / teaching in our on-campus clinical facilities.  We are particularly looking to recruit someone with strong professional experience as a paramedic.

All our academic staff act as personal tutors to provide pastoral care to our students.  The role requires listening, interpersonal and pastoral care skills to deal with sensitive issues concerning students, appreciate individual students' needs and circumstances, and refer students as appropriate to the specialist services that can provide further help.

In order to be successful in this post, you should have:

  • Current Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) registration as a Paramedic (or will be registered by your start date).
  • A degree in paramedic science/practice.
  • A Higher Education teaching qualification and / or a HEA Fellowship is required, or will need to be achieved within the first 12 months.  
  • Professional experience as a paramedic. 
  • Up-to-date, sound knowledge of current developments in paramedic practice including current clinical, professional and policy developments and the range of generic skills required to teach the subject.
  • Understanding of academic and award standards and the range and level of knowledge and skills, both subject-specific and generic, which the programme is intended to foster.
  • Experience of leading and implementing creative approaches to developing teaching and learning of paramedic issues in universities and/or clinical practice. 
  • Competent in learning technologies for effective use in teaching, learning and assessment.

It is desirable to have post-graduate qualifications and an active research portfolio. If you have a Doctorate and can supervise at this level, you will have opportunities to develop as the university has an active programme for supporting early career researchers. This job is suitable for job sharers.
