Health Education England (HEE) working across the Thames Valley are seeking applications for an Associate Head of School and Training Programme Director for the School of Public Health.

Following a recent restructure of HEE across the South region, Public Health has been organised into two sub-regional Schools of Public Health – South West School of Public Health and Thames Valley/Wessex School of Public Health.

The Thames Valley & Wessex School of Public Health is responsible for leading and co-ordinating the delivery of training and education programmes across the workforce for public health at all levels and in all sectors. The School will have two units of application; one situated in Thames Valley and the other in Wessex, working together in a coordinated approach across the sub-region. The Public Health specialty training schemes will remain as two units.

This role is offered as either Medical and Dental or Agenda for Change pay scale (subject to job evaluation). For Medical and Dental, this role will be undertaken as a 3PA appointment to lead the Thames Valley School of Public Health, to be split as 1PA (0.5 days per week) for the Head of School role, and 2PA (1 day per week) for the Training Programme Director (TPD) role.  For applicants from a background other than medicine this role will be offered under Agenda for Change and will be undertaken within 1.5 days per week to be split as half day (per week) for the Head of School role, and one day (per week) for the Training Programme Director (TPD).

Alongside your excellent leadership skills, you will be able to demonstrate a strong track record of working in public health. Developing powerful relationships with partners and stakeholders, you will influence your expertise to enhance and develop the education of our Public Health trainees and practitioners, to deliver better health outcomes and reduce health inequalities. Being on the GMC/GDC Specialist Register/UKPHR Specialist Register is an essential requirement. 

Please note that Interviews will take place Friday, 04 May 2018.
