Band 8A Associate Lecturer role, 8 sessions/30 hours (or two 4 sessions/15 hours roles) working days must include Mondays and Wednesday.

We are recruiting to one 8 sessions or two 4 sessions new roles in the core M80 course team. Both roles will bring opportunities to become involved in and lead on specific teaching, learning, assessment, administrative and course development activities.

These are exciting and challenging times for the course, as we prepare for our new NHS training commission. We are working to increase the number of training placements available each year and to develop the curriculum to match the latest guidance – from the ACP and in line with the NHS long-term plan for mental health services. These developments include creating an expert-by-experience group to contribute to many aspects of the programme and building on current teaching and learning in relation to key clinical areas, including peri-natal and older adolescents.

Main duties of the job

We wish to recruit colleagues who have completed Doctoral level studies and will be interested in our ongoing work to support the integration of clinical and research teaching and learning, for our trainees. At least one of the roles will specifically include work with the M80 Research Leads supporting assessment, teaching and supervision of Doctoral research projects.

An interest in being part of developing Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy Training to ensure that issues to do with equality, diversity and inclusion are an integrated part of the programme will be essential. Involvement with the process of adaptation that ensures that Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy continues to be centrally relevant in the modern NHS and the Long-term Plan will also be key.

As a course team we are committed to extending our work to raise our own awareness and take action to address equality, diversity and identity issues in our course content and in the course delivery.
