Governance Lead for Dental Education & Training

The role of Governance Lead is a pivotal role within the dental section. The changes in healthcare education and training, and the continuing development of Health Education England (HEE) request our governance processes to be evidenced based and robust. The NHS Long Term Plan and the Advancing Dental Care Review supports the emergence of new workforce solutions that will allow us to provide the best care for patients and governance arrangements are an essential part of these developments.

The role leads on the governance functions resulting from the rotation of trainees through their placements supporting Level 2 complex care dental treatment. This has historically been delivered in secondary care.

The role of the Governance Lead helps support the Postgraduate Dental Dean in embracing corporate, statutory and non-statutory functions, aligning with the HEE mandate. The role is focussed firmly upon improving patient and learner safety and experience and ensuring effective educational outcomes.

To support the Postgraduate Dean, the Governance Lead for Dental Education will work across the spectrum of health and where relevant, social care, within the context of a team, so that the provision of education reflects changing service models. This will deliver an integrated workforce comprising individuals from a spectrum of professional and other backgrounds.

The Governance Lead is professionally and managerially accountable to the Postgraduate Dental Dean.

The successful candidate must be a current GDC registrant and have a portfolio of continuing professional development relevant to their role.
