In response to the growing demand and considerable changes in both healthcare and higher education, the Consortium for the Accreditation of Sonographic Education (CASE) is seeking an Education Officer to work alongside the current team to support and improve education and accreditation activity.
The role is a temporary position and can be offered as a secondment or on a contractual basis.
Funding of £18,000, plus expenses (up to £1,000), is available and the approach to the work can be flexible depending on the successful applicants’ circumstances. It is expected that approximately 86 days effort will be required across a period of one to two years.
Location can be anywhere in the UK; limited travel will be necessary.
A full role description and person specification is available on request but, in summary, CASE are seeking someone with recognised expertise and leadership in medical ultrasound education, as well as professional practice. The applicant should hold a postgraduate qualification in medical ultrasound.
Key tasks will include reviewing the current accredited programmes and implementing changes that will be beneficial to reducing the demand on accreditors, in addition to improving the accreditation process for all stakeholders.
You will be expected to work with member organisation representatives, the committee chair and members, the CASE co-ordinator, and other sub-groups as required.
You will be expected to advise on and contribute effectively to the development and implementation of CASE policy and strategy.
You may occasionally be required to represent CASE at external meetings and events.
CASE was formed in 1993 through the common desire to ensure that the education and training of sonographers in the United Kingdom was delivered at the highest level. The mission statement is “to be the provider of choice for advice on the development and delivery of ultrasound education and training and to be the only recognised accreditor for ultrasound courses.”
For a job description and details of how to apply, or for any other enquiries, please contact the CASE co-ordinator.
