Head of Specialty Training School, Paediatrics

Cardiff University - School of Postgraduate Medical & Dental Education

The Wales Deanery (School of Postgraduate Medical and Dental Education) is looking to recruit a Head of Specialty Training School for Paediatrics to provide a strategic role in the delivery and quality management of specialty training in Paediatrics across the Wales Deanery. 
This individual will provide expert advice, support and strategic input to all stakeholders associated with delivering high quality postgraduate training in the specialty across Wales.  
As the public face of Paediatric postgraduate medical education and training in Wales, the post holder will be required to liaise with and maintain good working relationships with a broad range of internal and external stakeholders.

Salary: £72,927 - £94,679 per annum, pro rata for hours worked – 2 sessions per week.

Please be aware of the following development in relation to the Wales Deanery:

In November 2016, the Cabinet Secretary for Health, Well-being and Sport announced his intention to set up a single body to commission all health-related workforce education and training, mapped to an agreed, nationally-coordinated NHS workforce strategy: Health Education and Improvement Wales (HEIW).

The creation of HEIW represents a new strategic approach to developing the healthcare workforce across Wales for now and in the years to come.

Staff in the Wales Deanery (and Workforce Education and Development Services (WEDS) and Wales Centre for Pharmacy Professional Education (WCPPE)) are expected to be transferred under the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) (TUPE) arrangements out of Cardiff University and into this new body, a Special Health Authority (an NHS organisation), with a view to HEIW being fully operational by April 2018. To clarify, when the transfer takes place, Wales Deanery staff will no longer be employed by Cardiff University.

The location of the HEIW offices has not yet been determined and it is expected that the Wales Deanery will continue to be based at UHW until late 2018.

Please be aware that Cardiff University reserves the right to close this vacancy early should sufficient applications be received. Cardiff University is committed to supporting and promoting equality and diversity and to creating an inclusive working environment. We believe this can be achieved through attracting, developing, and retaining a diverse range of staff from many different backgrounds who have the ambition to create a University which seeks to fulfil our social, cultural and economic obligation to Cardiff, Wales, and the world. In supporting our employees to achieve a balance between their work and their personal lives, we will also consider proposals for flexible working or job share arrangements.
