From £30,401 per annum

The Nursing Careers and Professional Standards Team (within the Nursing and Quality Directorate) is looking for a dynamic and enthusiastic individual to undertake a brand new position within the Directorate. This substantive position will afford the right individual the opportunity to build on their significant clinical experience to hone their skills and knowledge as a junior Practice Education Facilitator (PEF). You will build and maintain supportive relationships with our Operational colleagues, in order to support Practice Supervisors (mentors) and Practice Assessors (key-mentors) (NMC 2018) to deliver the very best learning opportunities for our Future Nurses, including the implementation and embedding of the NMC's New Standards (2018). You will be involved in the development of new routes to nurse registration, including apprenticeships, and new roles, including Nursing Associates.

With support and guidance from the senior PEFs, your role will be busy, diverse and varied, and will include delivering Practice updates, audits, liaising with our key academic partners and supporting our student nurses to excel in their clinical placements with AWP. You will work with the senior PEFs to gain a strong understanding of this complex role, across both BNSSG and BSW divisions.

Due to the Trust-wide remit of this role, access to your own transport is essential.
