The University of Bedfordshire Faculty of Health and Social Sciences is seeking to appoint a Head of School for the School of Nursing, Midwifery and Health Education.

This is an exciting time to join the Faculty and an opportunity for an outstanding leader to shape the direction and purpose of the School. With a focus on enhancing student experience and delivering quality nurse and midwifery education the Faculty is looking for someone with drive and ambition who can contribute to a desire to build on current strengths and ensure a culture of excellence in terms of teaching and learning.

Heads of School offer leadership and management to the School’s team of academic and professional support staff to deliver a high quality student experience, develop and oversee delivery of the school’s portfolio of courses and ensure it performs highly against all relevant quality review and inspection standards. A key role is to manage the school budget so it remains a financially sustainable area of the Faculty and to work with their team of staff to reach recruitment targets across courses. Strategic planning and developing the school in line with the Faculty and wider university strategic goals are key to this role.

Heads of School are also key members of the Faculty Executive Group and are expected to contribute more widely to the strategic development of the University taking on specific leadership roles and tasks as required.

This post in particular provides leadership to a School which embraces preregistration courses in Nursing and Midwifery and requires a candidate who has an excellent understanding of the sector and excellent relationship and partnership building skills. It involves a significant line management responsibility and also requires good people and performance management skills, the ability to lead a team and excellent communication skills. Because of the nature of the School an NMC registrant is strongly preferred.
