Applications are invited for a 0.6 FTE Training and Quality Assessment Coordinator to work with the National Learning Disability Mortality Review (LeDeR) Programme. The specific responsibility of this post is to train and support local reviewers of deaths of people with learning disabilities, and ensure the quality and consistency of reviews throughout England.

We are looking for someone who will be a central member of the programme team, who takes personal responsibility for their work, is an excellent communicator and able to bring out the best in others. You will have a proven record of being an effective trainer in the health or social care sectors, and experience of assessing the quality of work.  You should be a qualified health or social care practitioner and have a good honours degree or equivalent in an appropriate subject area, e.g. social sciences, psychology, nursing, social work.  Experience of developing e-learning resources and ‘train the trainer’ approaches will be advantageous.

The Programme itself entails work that has considerable emotional content, so resilience and a positive approach to life are essential. You must be able to travel widely in England and stay overnight away from home as required.

This post was recently advertised under vacancy reference number SUPP102607 so previous applicants need not apply.

The closing date for applications is 23:59 on Wednesday 2 November 2016.

It is expected that the selection process, including interviews, will be held on Monday 14 November 2016.
