Senior Lecturer (Professional Development Centre)

University of Lincoln - College of Social Science – College of Social Science Executive Office

The Professional Development Centre is situated within the College of Social Science at the University of Lincoln.  Its role is to develop, manage and deliver a range of undergraduate, postgraduate and bespoke stand - alone CPD programmes in the areas of Health and Social Care, (including Postgraduate Medicine), Social Work, Psychology, Education, Law and Social & Political Science. In addition, the Centre also conducts applied Research / Evaluation and consultancy activity in the same areas.

A recent review of the Centre established a requirement for a senior lecturer to provide a coordination and academic programme management role; to lead on academic quality assurance and positive student experience; to liaise with academic staff within the wider university and to be a point of contact for external regulatory bodies regarding accreditation of professional programmes. We are therefore looking to appoint a suitably qualified and experienced individual at senior lecturer level who will have responsibility for the academic development, quality and management of a suite of programmes within the Centre, and who will liaise with internal and external stakeholders in the development, accreditation and delivery of these programmes. The successful candidate will become a member of the Professional Development Centre’s Management Group.

This is an exciting opportunity for an academic who wishes to move into a more senior position and who is looking for a role with a high degree of flexibility and considerable autonomy. The role actively promotes interprofessional and inter - sectoral collaboration and development.

The successful candidate will have a PhD or equivalent professional experience, and a recognised teaching qualification (or will be prepared to obtain such a qualification). It is important that the successful candidate has experience of the development, commissioning or management of postgraduate programmes and / or stand - alone bespoke CPD programmes.  Experience of academic QA procedures would be highly desirable, as would experience of collaborative working across sectors or disciplines.

To discuss this role, please contact Dr Adrian Carr, Director of the PD Centre on 01522 886876
