At the School of Health, Education, Policing and Sciences at Staffordshire University we have an exciting portfolio of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, with a strong history of nursing, midwifery and nursing associate education. We are keen to recruit an excellent Course Director to support the leadership and oversight of this area of our provision, with a particular focus on mental health nursing and nursing associates. You will be joining a well-established team with a wealth of experience both clinically and academically. The school is highly interdisciplinary in nature, and a great place to develop a distinctive academic portfolio. 

In addition to developing and delivering outstanding teaching and learning you will have the opportunity to develop your own academic skillset and contribute towards our ambitious research and enterprise goals. We are particularly interested to hear from candidates with experience in research and who therefore have the potential to contribute to the University’s research agenda and work with internationally leading research centres. Within this community you will have the opportunity to grow academically while working with a team of dedicated professionals. You will get the opportunity to work with like-minded individuals who will support and encourage your career development. 

We are looking for experienced candidates who have a demonstrable skillset in academic and team leadership, curriculum development, innovation and enterprise, with a passion to teach and shape the next generation of nurses, midwives and nursing associates. As a Course Director you will also be expected to work with colleagues across the university to implement our University Strategy and achievement of Key Performance Indicators.

The school is committed to building a diverse community and we are encouraging talented people to join our academic team. All appointments are made on merit, on the bases of the interview and applications. We particularly welcome applications from suitably qualified academics from minoritised backgrounds, as they are currently under-represented in positions within the department.

Applicants must hold a relevant professional qualification and undergraduate degree and relevant professional registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council and we are particularly seeking those with a mental health qualification and experience.
