A bit about the School of Health & Society
The School of Health and Society at the University of Salford is forward‐thinking and dynamic with a commitment to lifelong learning and real-world impact. Our School has a track record of collaborating with a wide range of industry partners 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 and we're proud to have more partnerships with SMEs than any other Greater Manchester University. In addition to this we have responded excellently to the challenges of the pandemic to maintain the quality of the student experience and we have learned new ways of working that we will take forward.
The University of Salford has made a strategic decision to develop Policing as part of its portfolio of professional subject areas. We successfully deliver, in partnership with Greater Manchester Police, the Police Constable Degree Apprenticeship, the Degree Holder Entry Programme and a Professional Development Transformation package. Our BSc Professional Policing course is also thriving and is now going into its third year.
We have the drive and ambition to become a regional, national and international leader in Policing through professional education, development, research and enterprise. As a result, you will be a working in a fast-paced environment as we look to develop and strengthen our existing team of Policing Academics. We are looking for a colleague who shares our values and passion for teaching and is committed to providing the highest quality student experience. This is an opportunity to influence the education and culture of a major Police force and to bring your expertise and research to assist them in meeting their future ambitions.
So what will the role involve?

Foster the development of an inclusive community, using teaching approaches which encourage inclusivity, working in partnership with students to improve their sense of belonging, diversifying the curriculum and using approaches to inclusive assessment to close the award gap.
The successful candidate will join the Directorate of Social Sciences and will work in a thriving and busy team. You will be responsible for contributing to an exceptional student experience through the delivery of teaching, research and enterprise engagement activity.
Our first cohort of PCDA students will soon be entering their third year and undertaking their End Point Assessment, as part of our overall recruitment strategy, we are keen to strengthen our team with candidates who have experience of supervising dissertations / evidence-based research projects.
