Lecturer in Health and Social Care

Job Description

We are deeply proud of our academic community. Nottingham Trent University (NTU) is a diverse and dynamic learning environment, defined by a shared sense of respect for all its people. Our mission is to be bold, to do the right things and to change lives, and our academics are key to realising those goals. Their work continues to reinforce our credentials as an award-winning university, and a research centre of excellence.

Our continued success — underpinned by the number of prestigious national awards we’ve won — has hinged on two commitments: forging excellent partnerships around the world and harnessing the talents of all our people. We secured a ‘Gold’ rating in the government’s Teaching Excellence Framework; received the Queen’s Anniversary Prize for our pioneering research; and in 2018, we were the first UK university to sign the Social Mobility Pledge, further demonstrating our commitment to ensuring ‘success for all’. NTU is a university at the peak of its powers, but we know we can still go even further. That’s why we’re now looking for new, passionate, ambitious people to join our community.

NTU’s School of Social Science is one of the UK’s preeminent teaching and learning environments; a conduit for unique opportunities in both academia and business; a nationally and internationally recognised research centre; a hub for the strategic partnerships that are shaping civic, cultural and social life; and a true beacon for the community.

As an aspiring university of the future, we understand and embrace our key obligations – to create new opportunities and manage the deployment of skills and knowledge for the betterment of communities, society and professional practice. The School of Social Science is key in realising those commitments, and this post is essential in working with colleagues to achieve this ambition.

An opportunity has arisen for a fixed-term Lecturer within the Department of Social Work. This is an exciting time to join the Department as we launch an updated curriculum and new Degree Apprenticeship in Social Work, reflecting the changing workforce needs of contemporary social work and social care services. We are looking for an enthusiastic and suitably experienced Lecturer to join a diverse team of social work and social care professionals delivering a range of undergraduate and post graduate programmes, including Social Work, Health and Social Care and Youth Justice.

The main purpose of this role will be to support assessment, teaching delivery and pastoral support across all three years of the BA in Health and Social Care. As well as teaching experience in Further or Higher Education, the successful candidate should ideally have a relevant practice background, having worked with service users from diverse communities. The successful candidate will also supervise final year undergraduates in the completion of their dissertations and contribute to research teaching as required.
