Grade 9 (Clinical NHS Market Supplement where appropriate)
Based in Canterbury and Medway, Part-time 0.6fte
This is your chance to join Kent and Medway Medical School in pioneering a new era of responsive, student-centred medical education. As Quality and Governance Lead, you will be helping to ensure that the next generation of medical professionals can rely on the best possible learning experience – including the most beneficial clinical placements.
Kent and Medway Medical School has been created to be a beacon for first-class medical education and research. Bringing together the resources of the University of Kent and Canterbury Christ Church University, our whole ethos is one of partnership. The role of Quality and Governance Lead involves significant administrative responsibility that depends on close collaboration with our programme team, quality and governance teams across both Universities, education leads at our healthcare partners, and external bodies.
Reporting to the Dean as a key member of the management team, you will be providing academic leadership and support for the development and administration of quality and governance programmes. You will ensure effective Educational Governance and Compliance – across Admissions, Learning and Teaching, Assessment and Quality Assurance - covering the core BMBS programme and any related programmes. This will include designing, leading, co-ordinating and delivering the Quality and Governance systems and processes, ensuring they comply with current and future quality, governance and regulatory requirements and any other relevant systems, policies and standards.
Taking responsibility for the quality assurance strategy – including leading the production of service level agreements, systems and processes for clinical placements with our partners – you will produce an annual report and evaluation, and continually look for ways to improve the programme. You will be the lead author for the GMC annual return. Your day-to-day responsibilities will include acting as a personal academic tutor and taking on face-to-face teaching and supervision of students.
To make your mark in this exciting new role, you must be an enthusiastic innovator with a co-operative approach that matches our own. Highly qualified, with proven academic credibility, you should have a track record of excellence in teaching and in-depth understanding of undergraduate medical education. You will also possess a solid grasp of national/international expectations of good curriculum design, plus a sound understanding of recruitment and admissions, retention, widening participation, quality assurance and enhancement issues.
We are keen to attract true innovators and catalysts of change who are looking for the challenge of something new.
