Job overview

The Trust has developed a Nursing Academy, offering a unique accredited route into nursing with our Higher Education partners. Apprentices can earn while they learn and progress to registered degree nurses or nursing associates.

The Clinical Student Partner role has been developed to support the learning of not only apprentices but also other undergraduate nursing students that visit the Trust on placement.

The team consists of 4 other Clinical student partners who support apprentices and undergraduate nurses. The post holder would be managed by the learning environment lead for nursing and will be part of a bigger Clinical Academy team that also supports Allied Health professional apprentices and students.

Main duties of the job

The Nursing Academy is a relatively new concept and we are looking for a staff member who can support apprentices and students through their learning experience, working alongside other established Clinical Student Partners in the team. You will also need to build up strong working relationships with the services to facilitate learning opportunities and placements.

You will work with our educational providers to influence the development of a high quality learning environment including placements. You will do this by providing support, educational and development activities for nursing apprentices, pre-reg nurses and associated practice assessors/ supervisors.

You will also work with colleagues to ensure there are sufficient high quality placements and practice assessors/ supervisors to support all our students.

This post is full time but applications from those seeking part time will be considered.

Interviews are scheduled for the 5th October 2021.
