Coventry University is a leading innovator in education committed to creating better futures by empowering students and communities to transform their lives and society through teaching, learning research and enterprise. Having achieved a gold rating in the UK government's Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF), our vision is to continue to enhance our position as a leading provider of innovative education and impactful research both nationally and across the world.
With 10,000 students the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences is a key part of this dynamic and innovative university group, with excellent links to major national and international organisations and close partnerships with universities around the world. The Faculty is home to the largest selection of forward thinking vocational health and social care courses in the Midlands.
As one of three schools in the Faculty, the School of Nursing, Midwifery and Health is the largest School and delivers undergraduate and post graduate courses for a range of health professions including; nursing, midwifery, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, dietetics, paramedic science, operating department practice, and most recently diagnostic radiography. We also have a large portfolio of CPD courses at undergraduate and postgraduate levels including Advanced Clinical Practice and Non-Medical prescribing. Coventry is ranked in the top 10 for 12 of the 44 subject tables it appears in, and 5 of which are within the School (Guardian University Guide 2023).
The physiotherapy portfolio includes two pre-registration courses (BSc Physiotherapy and MSc Physiotherapy and Leadership), post-graduate courses (MSc Advancing Physiotherapy Practice, MSc Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy and a PgCert First Contact Practitioner). We also offer pre-registration apprenticeships at BSc and MSc levels in Coventry and on our new London campus. We are currently seeking to recruit a senior academic into the role of Curriculum Lead for Physiotherapy with a vision to further enhance the success of the portfolio. Applicants should therefore have experience of developing and delivering education programmes and line managing academic teams within a relevant portfolio.
All applicants must be registered with the HCPC.
The successful candidate will be a highly motivated individual who will join the School senior leadership team to drive the School’s vision and ambitions for the Physiotherapy curriculum area and to support staff in effective delivery of high-quality courses and promote an excellent student experience. The role-holder will have strategic responsibility for leading curriculum development and for managing the allocation of resource to ensure performance and growth targets are achieved.
The University offers academic and professional development and those without a teaching qualification will need to undertake Coventry University’s PGCHE and/or secure HEA fellowship.
