This role offers an exciting opportunity to join a highly successful team of Nutritional Therapists and other nutrition professionals as they commence the delivery of a new curriculum in Nutritional Therapy. A key aspect of this role is to be actively involved in shared planning, preparation, evaluation and development of all theory, research and clinical practice modules in Nutritional Therapy, including an access module, Post Graduate Diploma and Masters in Nutritional Therapy. This will include active involvement in the preparation, teaching and development of all modules, including research modules and dissertation supervision. There is a strong professional focus on the preparation of students for their role as registered Nutritional Therapy Practitioners, underpinned by providing students with opportunities to see clients within the University Student teaching clinic. The clinic runs in the university McClelland Centre for Health and Wellbeing, alongside the Student-Led Clinic for Occupational Therapy and Physiotherapy students. The successful candidate will supervise client consultations, developing this important aspect of the student experience, and take an active role in the development of the Clinic. Therefore, it is important to have an in-depth understanding of this profession and have a minimum of two years in practice, preferably with experience in teaching, or supervision of students or less experienced colleagues.
Shortlisted candidates invited to interview will be asked to deliver a 20-minute teaching session (excluding questions). The teaching session will require you to deliver a teaching session to post graduate students at the start of their clinical practice, about how to link one aspect of a client’s functional Medicine Matrix to their personalised nutritional recommendations. The teaching session will be followed by 5 minutes of related questions. A 30 minute interview with a panel will follow.
