An incredible opportunity has arisen at leading end of life care provider as part of their brand new state of the art education and training centre which is due to open in Autumn 2020.

As the Senior Educationalist, you will work closely with the Centre Lead, develop an aspirational programme of learning that is recognised in the sector and beyond, as being both innovative and relevant in
meeting the current and future needs locally, nationally and internationally.

The role will also ensure the quality of all learning available via the Centre, as well as support the development of a competent and confident hospice workforce by providing/facilitating effective learning via the Centre.
You will support the training and development of the hospice workforce including (but not restricted to nursing) and support organisational objectives associated with upskilling the workforce through the
provision of speciality training programmes covering dementia, heart failure and frailty.

This role will be instrumental in growing an already successful programme which last year provided education and training to at least 2,124 individuals from 45 countries, engaged in a number of large multi-centre
research studies and contributed to publications spanning new books, book chapters, peer reviewed articles and a variety of presentations at national and international conferences.

The scope of this role is unlimited, with opportunities existing also to recruit to new posts; extend learning opportunities to more professionals locally, nationally and internationally and also to the public for the first time. Look at using technology alongside more traditional face to face learning and invite curiosity and interest through exhibitions and historical information alongside formal education and training.

And even the current covid pandemic will provide positive advancements in terms of opportunities for learning around death, dying and loss and building on these too, to help people
manage the challenges presented by the virus now and in the long term.

This role will be for someone who sees the value of learning as a means of transforming care and services, and ultimately the experience of those using them.

And although you don't need to be immersed in palliative care, but to be successful you will need to be passionate about end of life issues and be keen to see societal change, alongside the development of services and professionals involved in their delivery.

You will also need to be a strong team player, someone who is innovative and creative and a person up for a challenge, as whilst there are huge opportunities there are some significant unknowns as with any new venture.

The key experience for this role includes:
A Formal education qualification (preferably Qualified Teacher Status) and Masters level qualification
Experience of palliative and end of life care
Ideally experience of Health Care delivery or similar
High level of pedagogical experience
Knowledge of quality assurance methods relating to the achievement of training outcomes and improvements in clinical practice
Experience of managing staff and supervising their practice
Good level of business acumen including an understanding of commercial opportunities
