The University of Wolverhampton holds a distinctive place within the higher education sector, and is one of the most successful modern universities, delivering excellence in teaching and research, widening access, and in business engagement.

Today as the ‘University of Opportunity’, the University is an integral part of economic growth and social change within the West Midlands and beyond.
One of four University faculties, the Faculty of Education, Health and Wellbeing has over 500 staff members and 11,000 students. The Faculty comprises a wide and diverse range of subject areas, research and knowledge exchange activities, organised through four Institutes; the Institute of Human Science, the Institute of Health, the Institute of Community and Society and the Institute of Education.
The Institute of Health includes a wide range of professionally qualifying health care courses. We have state-of the-art, newly developed skills centres to offer hands-on teaching of nursing and healthcare professions skills through a comprehensive range of state of the art equipment, and have recently opened a “Centre for Excellence” in skills and simulation at our Telford campus. Technologies include the latest Audio visual recording equipment, digital anatomy tables, immersive reality suites, virtual reality, as well as high fidelity home and ward environments.
You will provide support for student learning and will work collaboratively in teaching, assessment and the development of learning support materials.
