We are the University of Cumbria, for and from Cumbria and our localities, rooted in serving our communities, with people, place and partnership at our heart. 

Now is a very exciting time to be joining us because we are delivering a new "Towards 2030" strategic plan focused on making the most of our three most valuable assets; People, Place and Partnerships, to become a catalyst for economic well-being for our region, nationally and internationally. 
The University of Cumbria has extensive experience in delivering high quality paramedic education across the UK. The University of Cumbria has extensive experience in delivering high quality paramedic education across the UK. Currently we have over 1100 learners on CPD programmes with formal contracts with 9 out of the 11 English ambulance services, as well as an open access paramedic course at our Lancaster campus. This pedigree in paramedic education has led to the creation of the Centre of Excellence in Paramedic Practice (CEPP), which recently won the Preferred Provider Status for the Southern Ambulance Alliance (SWAST, SCAS, SECAMB, LAS, IoW), East of England Ambulance Service and North West Ambulance Service for paramedic degree apprenticeships. The University now has over 900 registered learners across the 6 apprenticeship programmes. 

The London Ambulance Service, in conjunction with the University of Cumbria, are seeking applications for a 2-year fixed term secondment in the role of "Clinical Lecturer". The successful post holder will work with the LAS academic team to deliver the University's BSc (Hons) in Paramedic Science to LAS members of staff who are undertaking the new Paramedic Science Degree Apprenticeship.  

The post, while a secondment to the University, will be based in LAS however there may be the requirement to travel to neighbouring Trusts to support the delivery of the same programme. The post holder should be an appropriately registered healthcare professional with experience of working within the pre-hospital environment as well as experience in delivering either ambulance based pre-hospital education or Higher Education Institution based healthcare education. Post holders will be supported to complete the first module of the postgraduate certificate in learning and teaching in higher education if this has not been achieved already. In addition, a bespoke induction programme will be available for new starters to engage with to support their transition into Higher Education.  

The University is committed to nurturing an environment where its employees, students and visitors are treated fairly and with respect at all times. We recognise that if we provide a fully inclusive working and studying environment, we will enable everyone to perform to the best of their ability. Recognising, embracing and valuing difference will lead to improvements for everyone, including: 

  • A more diverse staff and student population; 
  • A better working and studying environment; 
  • Attracting and retaining the very best staff and students; 
  • Achieving the University mission, vision and values; 
  • Meeting and exceeding the challenging targets and performance indicators in the University corporate plan.
