The University of Lincoln has established a reputation as one of the most dynamic, fastest growing universities in the UK, and was named as the Modern University of the Year in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2021. Situated in the heart of a beautiful and historic city it has built an international reputation for the quality of its teaching and research. The School of Health and Social Care is located in the College of Social Science, along with the Schools of Psychology, Sports and Exercise Science, Education, Social and Political Sciences and the Lincoln Law School. We also work alongside the School of Pharmacy and the new Medical School in the College of Science.
The School offers a range of undergraduate, post-graduate degrees and post qualifying and post registration stand-alone programmes that can contribute to professional Masters Degrees. In excess of 1200 students are currently registered on the School’s programmes. The majority (around 900) are undertaking qualifying programmes towards professional registration, in Nursing, Midwifery, Social Work, Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy and Paramedic Science by full or part time mode, and at undergraduate and post graduate levels, whilst a further 90 are studying for the vocationally related degree in Health and Social Care. The remaining students are undertaking part time CPD programmes at a post registration, post graduate level in relation to their professional development. The School also includes the Community and Health Research Unit, renowned for its publicly engaged and transformational research in primary and preventative health and social care practice.
The School of Health and Social Care is forward thinking and ambitious with plans to further develop education for Healthcare and Social Care Professionals at pre and post-registration levels. We are committed to inter-professional and collaborative working in teaching and research. The successful candidate will join an experienced team committed to enhancing the health and social well-being of people across Lincolnshire and further afield. The School works with providers across Lincolnshire and further afield with the aim of transforming services for the benefit of people accessing the service and their families.
The successful candidate will be responsible for teaching Mental Health across our Nursing programmes, but may also contribute to teaching across our portfolio of healthcare programmes. The candidate should therefore be able to teach a range of healthcare students. You should be up to date with your practice and hold current registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council as a Registered Nurse. You should be able to demonstrate the ability to develop and lead modules and have the skills to teach students at a variety of levels.
We are looking for candidates who are adaptable and innovative and who have excellent communication skills. They must have a ‘can do’ approach and be driven to achieve. They should demonstrate substantive evidence of meeting deadlines and should have attention to detail in all they do. Applications for part-time positions will be welcomed.
