Interested in developing your skills in Orthotics clinical teaching and learning? A unique opportunity has arisen for a suitably qualified and motivated candidate to join the Directorate of Allied and Public Health as a Teaching Intern, contributing to the Prosthetics and Orthotics undergraduate degree programme.

The Directorate is one of four academic units within the School of Health and Society - one of the largest multi-disciplinary groupings of its kind in the UK, providing opportunities for interdisciplinary working and learning for staff and students alike. The School offers undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in Prosthetics & Orthotics, Podiatry, Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Diagnostic Radiography and Public Health as well as a wide range of other programmes including Sport Rehabilitation, Psychology, Nursing, Social Policy and Counselling.

The University of Salford has a strong background in P&O teaching and research, recently being awarded an Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council grant to lead a consortium to set up a Centre for Doctoral Training in P&O. We will be training 60 PhD students in the next 8 years. An MSc in P&O Science will be offered as part of this exciting new development. We are also developing a degree apprenticeship route to professional qualification.

The teaching intern post offers an opportunity to contribute to the effective delivery of orthotic education whilst undertaking a programme of development. This will prepare you for a future lecturer post should one become available. You will be mentored by a senior academic colleague and supported in the development of skills through your line manager and contact with other members of staff. As part of this development package you will be supported to undertake an educational postgraduate award (the Postgraduate Certificate of Academic Practice).

The teaching intern post will have a focus of teaching and learning in Orthotic practice - ensuring students gain up-to-date knowledge and skills to provide excellent care. There will also be a requirement to fulfill academic administrative roles as well as generic teaching duties, as appropriate. The role is fixed term for 36 months.

We would welcome applicants for this role who are passionate about supporting students to achieve their full potential. A secondment arrangement from an applicant's current position will be considered.
