Staffordshire University is a leading university for the delivery of the Paramedic Science award. The Centre of Excellence at Stafford has dedicated paramedic skills laboratories, a fully functional ambulance and superb student facilities to enhance the commitment to academic excellence and the facilitation of student learning.  

Due to an increase in student numbers from September 2017 Staffordshire University is currently seeking to recruit two suitably qualified and experienced candidates to join the established teaching team in supporting and facilitating learners through their study to become registered paramedics. The posts are for a two year period and can be full or part time, depending upon the successful applicants preference.

The role will involve preparation and delivery of teaching on various aspects of paramedic science within the undergraduate paramedic programme, with a primary focus on the delivery of clinical skills.

The posts offer an excellent career development opportunity to gain experience in higher education as a Lecturer in Paramedic Science for a 2 year period. The position is based at The Centre of Excellence, Blackheath Lane Campus, Stafford although some travel to Stoke Campus will be expected on occasions.

The successful applicants will demonstrate excellent knowledge and skill in paramedic practice, will work well within a team and will possess excellent communication skills. Familiarity with the paramedic undergraduate programme would be beneficial and formal teaching experience is preferred but is not essential, although applicants who do not hold a teaching qualification would be expected to work towards one.

Applicants must hold a relevant professional qualification or undergraduate degree and registration with the HCPC is essential.  The successful candidates should be either educated to Doctoral level or have practice experience of an equal standing.
