Interested in strengthening the delivery of Physiotherapy education and leading change?

The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) has an exciting opportunity to take on the role of Education Adviser within the Workforce Development and Education team.

The role will undertake quality assurance and enhancement work with providers of physiotherapy education and will progress project work in areas aligned with developments in UK physiotherapy education.

Particular focuses will be ensuring innovative approaches to curriculum design and practice education, whilst taking account of changing patient needs, population health, service delivery models and contemporary developments in physiotherapy practice.

The post holder will work with key stakeholders to engage with developments relating to education delivery, commissioning and workforce planning; and support higher education institutions in creating new pre and post-registration programmes, that support the creation of a physiotherapy workforce fit for the future.

You will also contribute to broader CSP education activity. This includes formulating position statements in key policy areas, undertaking education review processes and continuing to strengthen our links with physiotherapy education providers across the UK, again taking account of changes across health and social care and the university sector.

You will also work with colleagues across the CSP to support corporate activity in line with the CSPs corporate strategy.

The post will suit someone with a developed knowledge of post-18 education, and who has the insight and skills to pick up project briefs swiftly and to progress activity to completion within tight timeframes. It requires someone with strong skills in networking, project management, communication, negotiation, policy analysis and drafting accessible written materials.

The post will involve some travel across the UK, including to the CSP London office, but is primarily home-based.
