NHS Digital Academy Teaching Fellow

Imperial College London - Centre for Health Policy

St Mary’s Campus

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Teaching Fellow to work in the newly created NHS Digital Academy. The primary purpose of this role will be to ensure the delivery of a coherent and high quality participant experience across all the components of this ambitious programme. 

The NHS Digital Academy, set to be rolled out in early 2018, is a virtual organisation that will offer the first national learning programme in change management, leadership and clinical informatics to digital leaders in the NHS. The programme is targeted at training 300 health informatics professionals working in the NHS, over the course of three years. Its purpose is to accelerate the digital transformation of the NHS by developing strong digital leaders who are capable of delivering change so that patient care, and the way that organisations operate, can benefit from the many improvements and innovations modern technology has to offer.

The NHS Digital Academy combines practical NHS expertise with academic rigour to deliver a unique and ambitious learning experience. Led by Imperial College London’s Institute of Global Health Innovation, the consortium also includes the University of Edinburgh with international strategic input from Harvard Medical School. Our design consortium unites NHS experts with world-class clinicians, researchers and digital specialists with unrivalled expertise in blended learning, health informatics and data science, leadership development and healthcare transformation.

Delivered predominantly online, the programme supports participants to apply immediately what they learn by carrying out a transformative change project within their organisation in parallel with taught modules. Over the 52-week programme, participants will also come together in person — across England both centrally and regionally — to share best practice and form supportive relationships.

You will provide academic and pastoral support to the cohorts of Chief Information Officers (CIOs), Chief Clinical Information Officers (CCIOs) and aspiring digital leaders for the duration of the Digital Health Leadership programme. You will be able to demonstrate a proven track record of success in delivering teaching excellence, and the ability to understand and respond to the needs of higher education students. In addition, you will have proven leadership skills and an ability to introduce new methods and processes to deliver a high quality participant experience.

The successful applicant will be educated to degree level, with a postgraduate qualification in a relevant discipline and should have some teaching experience in a Higher Education setting.

This is a unique opportunity to be part of an internationally acclaimed team and help shape the development of this innovative programme. All qualified applicants are encouraged to apply.

This is a full time, fixed term appointment until March 2021.
