An exciting opportunity exists to enter the NHS Audiology career pathway as an Associate Practitioner in Audiology. This would particularly suit science graduates and others who wish to apply science in a healthcare role. Three posts are available and will be based within a supportive Audiology department familiar with training provision at this level. One post will be based at the Royal Gwent Hospital, Newport, one at Nevill Hall Hospital, Avergavenny, and one at Ysbyty Ystrad Fawr, Ystrad Mynach. Individuals will be employed for a fixed term of 2 years during which they will complete a Certificate of Higher Education in Basic Audiological Practice through block release at Swansea University. However, the majority of training will be delivered in the clinical setting, supporting a range of clinical activities but primarily caring for adult patients at the base hospital. It is anticipated that employment prospects in Wales will be promising for those completing the training scheme. Work is underway nationally to facilitate next step progression through the career pathway to roles as Audiologists, for those individuals with aptitude and commitment to do so. Further information about Audiology and the training scheme is available in the accompanying document.

These fixed term training posts are part of a Welsh Government initiative that complements the launch of a Framework of Action for hearing loss in Wales in 2017

The ability to speak Welsh is desirable for this post; Welsh and/or English speakers are equally welcome to apply.

Closing date: 2nd April 2020
