Head of Policing
We are looking to appoint a Head of Policing who can share our passion and take a lead role in influencing the education and training of a major Police force. We are looking for a passionate, enthusiastic and creative professional to bring their expertise and lead our teaching team by sharing our passion for providing a high-quality learning experience for students and contribute to the development of our new university Centre for Policing.
Our School of Health & Society is one of the largest providers of nursing, midwifery, allied health professionals, counselling & psychotherapy and social work education programmes in the UK, known for our track record of collaborating with a wide range of industry partners across health and social care to produce highly skilled graduates with real work experience. We are at an interesting time in the Higher Education sector, there is significant change in terms of oversight, student expectations and changing demographics and we are trying to do things differently so that we stay ahead of these changes. Our connection to industry is stronger than ever and we're proud to have more partnerships with SMEs than any other Greater Manchester University.
The University of Salford has made a strategic decision to develop Policing as part of its portfolio of professional subject areas and we are currently developing a team of Policing staff to drive our ambition to become a regional, national and international leader in Policing through professional education and development, research and enterprise.
