Our Faculty of Health and Society offers more than just a learning environment for students – the team is focused on improving the health and wellbeing of people living and working across Northamptonshire. Our research aims to address inequalities through innovative interdisciplinary research, education and enterprise to improve the whole population’s health and wellbeing.
We pride ourselves on our emphasis on participation and our interprofessional relationships. Our ability to draw on academic expertise from disciplines as diverse as biochemistry and psychology, as well as those more traditionally related to health and social care, means that we can consider real-world problems holistically.
The University of Northampton’s focus on a personalised learning experience for our students was recently cited by HEFCE as a reason for our Gold award in the Teaching Excellence Framework 2017. To augment this approach further we have adopted an ‘Active Blended Learning’ (ABL) approach which places greater emphasis on student-centred activities that support the development of subject knowledge, understanding, independent learning and digital fluency. Successful candidates for academic posts at the University of Northampton will be expected to adopt ABL as standard in their teaching practice.
This is an exciting time to join our University following our relocation in September 2018 to a new purpose-built, town-centre campus designed to adapt to 21st century teaching and the ABL model. We are looking to recruit individuals who share our passion for innovation, creativity and social impact and who will play a key role as we realise our ambition of transforming lives for the better and inspiring positive change.
The University of Northampton is one of only two Ashoka U Changemaker Campuses in the UK, and in 2017 was awarded the Social Enterprise Gold Mark, an independent guarantee that we have proven to our employees, students and stakeholders that we are committed to continuous improvement across our business in order to consistently deliver a positive impact on people and planet.
