The University of South Wales is seeking to appoint two Lecturers in Policing Practice. We are currently in partnership with five Police Forces and have recently won the contract to deliver to two new partner forces, South Wales Police and Gwent Police. We have dedicated delivery teams based in each Force working in collaboration with police personnel. Our courses are blended in nature and consist of both online and in-person delivery, approximately a 50:50 split. Whilst we are seeking to identify talented individuals to work across our entire provision, we have a particular demand in the South Wales and Gwent areas.
Applicants will have relevant policing knowledge or experience and ideally a recognised Higher Education teaching qualification, although we will consider applications on a case-by-case basis. If you do not possess a teaching qualification relevant to the context of Higher Education, if appointed you will be enrolled on the internal Postgraduate Certificate in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education scheme.
This position relates to the development and provision of the off-campus policing practice courses within our partner force areas, as such, you will be based at the police training facilities. The post holder will also be required to travel to one or more of our other partner forces from time to time, as well as undertake a short induction period based at the University of South Wales and occasional travel to USW thereafter. Due to the requirement to work from police premises, forces may also require applicants to undertake additional police vetting.
