Are you interested in post graduate educational development and would like to develop your understanding and knowledge of curriculum development within a national team of educational specialists?

In this new role, you would be providing high level support to the development, implementation and review of new and existing national healthcare science curricula within a robust quality assurance framework. The existing curricula span over 30 specialties across the Practitioner Training Programme (PTP), Scientist Training Programme (STP) and Higher Specialist Scientist Training Programme (HSST) to provide the core education and training framework for Healthcare Scientists. The School is currently expanding its curriculum portfolio to provide short courses in order to address specific work-force needs.

 Hosted by Health Education Midlands and East, the National School of Healthcare Science works with education providers and NHS organisations across the UK to oversee the implementation of the new training programmes developed for scientists working in the NHS scientists at all levels

 This role will allow you to gain hands-on experience in facilitating the activities of expert scientist groups to review and update existing curricula and develop new specialties in Healthcare Science. The role will require you to liaise with the healthcare science profession, patient representatives and lay people, professional bodies, students, HEIs, the Council of Healthcare Science, the Academy for Healthcare Science, Medical Royal Colleges and other key stakeholders across the health and social care system.

 We are looking for candidates who are tenacious, highly motivated and able to work effectively in a multidisciplinary team of experts. You will have sound analytical and digital skills including database management, a demonstrable track record in process development and project management, sophisticated communication skills and the ability to apply appropriate quality assurance processes to the management of curricula.
