An exciting opportunity has arisen for an experienced Veterinary Nurse educator to join Aberystwyth School of Veterinary Science (ASVS) to lead the design and development of a new degree in Veterinary Nursing. We are looking for a skilled individual to bring their expertise to design an exceptional, ground-breaking degree programme and associated curriculum that draws on contemporary practice, research and innovative pedagogy. You will be expected to provide academic leadership for the development, accredited approval and staffing of the new Veterinary Nursing degree.
The post-holder will be expected to take the lead for the development of the Veterinary Nursing curriculum and the submission for Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) accreditation. The appointee will take on the role of Veterinary Nursing scheme co-ordinator, leading curriculum developments, delivering core teaching, liaising with other cognate departments internally and externally to the University and contributing to recruitment and marketing activities.
