Your discipline. Your passion. Our success, together.
You will have a relevant honours degree and experience of teaching undergraduate policing students. Ideally, this will be coupled with experience of professional policing and police training. A commitment to research and the ability to achieve research objectives are key to this role as are enthusiasm and passion for your subject and the ability to network externally with policing stakeholders.
Excellent communication skills, time and workload management skills and a strong commitment to proving an outstanding student experience will be key to your success in this dynamic research and teaching led department.
About the Role
The post arises from our wish to strengthen and further develop the research and teaching capacity to support the delivery of our new undergraduate degree in Policing and contribute to the development of our undergraduate Professional Policing degree. You will provide expert teaching in a variety of modes, including lectures, seminars, tutorials, and online interaction, and facilitate student work in a range of different media.
You will deliver the 3 Level 6 specialist professional policing modules on Professional Policing, Police Ethics and Integrity and the Police Research Report and contribute to providing related student support and administrative duties across the three years of the programme. In return, you will have the opportunity to work in a very successful Department that values excellence in teaching, student support and research.
We want you to feel happy when you come to work and proud when you go home.
From the moment you join us you have the opportunity to enhance your skills. We offer a range of specialist development sessions and academic development opportunities along with an award winning and comprehensive staff health & wellbeing programme (HR Excellence Awards 2017). This means you will receive a full academic induction, be enrolled if appropriate on our PGCTHE, benefit from the Edge Hill University CPD scheme (UKPSF) and our annual University Learning and Teaching day all to support your professional development. To support your wellbeing you are able to enjoy a lunchtime stroll across our beautiful campus, book to get a trim from our onsite hairdresser, your car valeted, or get together with colleagues over free food and drink to watch the latest film on one of our Film Nights and so much more.
This is just a taste of what we are able to offer you at Edge Hill University.
