We 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.

Our lecturers develop and utilise a range of teaching methods to support student learning in both theory and practice, and act as a personal tutor; using listening, interpersonal and pastoral care skills. We work in partnership with students, academics, researchers, service users and service colleagues to deliver high quality learning and teaching based contemporary research findings and practice.
