A bit about the School of Health & Society…
Our School of Health & Society is one of the largest providers of nursing, midwifery and allied health professional education programmes in the UK, known for our track record of collaborating with a wide range of industry partners across health and social care to produce highly skilled graduates with real work experience. We are at an interesting time in the Higher Education sector, there is significant change in terms of oversight, student expectations and changing demographics and we are trying to do things differently so that we stay ahead of these changes.
Our connection to industry is stronger than ever, particularly in terms of our real-world research. Our Centre for Social and Health Research is an inter-disciplinary research Centre bringing together experts in criminology, digital information, mental health, midwifery, nursing, sociology, social policy and social work to address global social and health challenges. Our research aims to understand the delivery and receipt of interventions, practices and policies that face people, communities, services and places and often uses digital solutions to solve real world problems and make positive changes
