Clinical Placement Facilitator (Two Posts)

Job Reference: 358-2672608-COR

University Hospitals of Leicester
Education Team
University Hospitals of Leicester, Leicester
£31,365 - £37,890 per annum

UHL School of Nursing and Midwifery Practice

Our Clinical Placement Facilitators are key roles within the Corporate Nurse Education Team and are there to support the Practice Learning Leads and guide student nurses, midwives and trainee Nursing Associates whilst on placement in UHL. Of equal importance is the role our CPFs have in advising our practice assessors and supervisors in again, guiding students who may need a little more support and direction whilst they are on placement in UHL

Over the next few months we will be working with our local universities, care home providers and primary care colleagues to increase the number of student placements outside of traditional hospital environments. So we now need to recruit to two of our vacancies in order to help increase our placement capacity.

Post One – Ensuring the provision of high quality placements and learning opportunities for Adult student nurses in UHL

Post Two – Ensuring the provision of high quality placements and learning opportunities for Children’s student nurses in the UHL Childrens Hospital

To apply for either of these roles, you must be a Level One Registered Nurse or Level One Registered Children's Nurse and be working in a clinical role at Band 5 or above after completing a period of consolidation post preceptorship.

You will be educated to degree level in a nursing or a health related subject and be able to demonstrate evidence of your commitment to continuous learning and application to practice.

You will be able to describe how you have personally and professionally developed over the last 12 months and how you have supported a positive practice environment for students and learners during that time.

Both roles will work in collaboration with universities and other NHS providers across LLR, quality assuring learning environments and working creatively as a team to expand placement capacity and ensuring student and practice assessors / supervisors are supported. There may be a requirement to travel to placement settings across LLR to visit learners, assessors and supervisors in practice areas.

The role will be required to meet the ever increasing need to work flexibly and across boundaries and this may mean you are asked to support the delivery of clinical teaching to the wider nursing workforce which would be of benefit to your long term career in nursing education.
