You should be able to work collaboratively, and have experience of working with social work students in practice. Ability to deliver high quality teaching and facilitation of learning within a HEI environment and practice settings, with due regard to working with adult, child and families and mental health conditions.  Working within a department and school that embrace a breadth and depth of research themes and priorities, you will play an active role in supporting research and knowledge transfer activities.

As the Think Ahead programme is a national programme, students will be undertaking their practice experience across England, hence post holders will be assigned to cover at least one of five placement units which are located across England.  Therefore interested candidates residing in the midlands, northwest and northeast of England, may be interested in applying as home/remote working will be facilitated.
