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.

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. The existing academic team has been developed to include new teaching fellow roles

Teaching Fellows at Coventry University support teaching, assessment, curriculum development, and course co-ordination. They are involved in the development and delivery of teaching and other core activities to ensure that students have an effective learning experience. You will join a School with high levels of teaching quality and student satisfaction with a focus on experiential learning through interactive learning, practical skills sessions and clinical placements.

We are seeking to recruit applicants who are committed to contributing to our continued success in teaching within all fields of physiotherapy and are enthusiastic about developing the professionals of the future. You will exhibit excellent team working skills and will be able to demonstrate collaborative working within academic or practice communities. Applicants should also possess a comprehensive understanding of physiotherapy practice, supported by research and/or evidence-informed practice. At fellow or senior fellow level, applicants should be able to demonstrate a high level of expertise preferably holding a higher degree in a physiotherapy related subject. Experience of teaching students, either within a HEI or as a practice educator, would be advantageous. However, the University offers academic and professional development opportunities and provides a Post Graduate Certificate Teaching Qualification leading to HEA accreditation. All applicants must be registered on the HCPC physiotherapy register.

The successful applicant will be appointed to either an assistant, fellow, or senior teaching fellow post, dependant on your professional qualifications, clinical experience and teaching experience.
