The team are national leaders in developing and delivering Problem Based Learning curricula and have presented at international conferences on the use of innovative simulated teaching methods. We offer a range of exciting pre-registration and post graduate programmes, including the Post Graduate Certificate in Diagnostic Hysteroscopy &Therapeutic Management and the MSc Midwifery.

The School of Allied Health Professions and Midwifery have developed a strong portfolio of education provision at undergraduate and postgraduate levels for Physiotherapy, Diagnostic Radiography, Occupational Therapy, Paramedic Science and Midwifery with staff contributing to teaching across Nursing and Healthcare leadership and the Physician Associate programmes. 

You should be committed to high quality academic and clinical education and be innovative and creative in your work with the ability to manage timelines, lead others and support students and less experienced staff . You will work collaboratively with staff in the School of Allied Health Professions and Midwifery and across the Faculty of Health Studies, including the service user and carer group and with our students to further develop our programmes and to develop new business or research opportunities. You will also be involved in student recruitment activities.

We welcome applicants who consider themselves from BAME backgrounds, LGBT+  and also male midwives  who are currently underrepresented across our teaching and research teams and who can be role models to our students

In addition to learning and teaching, the University empowers and encourages staff to develop their own research profile, and to participate in internationally leading, interdisciplinary research and innovation that will shape and benefit future societies. Our internationally renowned applied health research undertaken in partnership with the NHS is impacting positively on health outcomes locally and regionally and is contributing to knowledge of international significance. Colleagues from our faculty helped to establish the Born in Bradford cohort study and continue to lead many of its recent developments. The University has invested significantly in high quality research facilities and space such as the Digital Health Enterprise Zone (DHEZ, in collaboration with the City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council), and the Wolfson Centre for Applied Health Research (CAHR, in collaboration with the University of Leeds, Bradford Institute for Health Research, and the Wolfson Institute). The latter is supported by high quality new appointments at senior  university level many of them in our faculty: Prof Siobhan Reilly, new Director of the Centre for Applied Dementia Studies and lead for Healthy Aging, Prof Rebecca Randell lead for Health Technologies for Quality and Safety, Dr Andy Daly-Smith lead for Healthy Childhood and Physical Activity. We have proven additional strengths in Diversity and Inclusion (Prof Udy Archibong) as well as Radiography and Imaging (Prof Beverly Snaith and Prof Maryann Hardy).
