Education Project Officer (Temporary)
I work with the Educational Strategy and Quality Assurance team that provides a focus for the Division’s strategy and activities around educational policy developments and implementation, standards, quality assurance, and operational arrangements across undergraduate, postgraduate taught and postgraduate research degrees in Medical Sciences.
We discharge the Division’s educational responsibilities through a variety of committees and operational activities. We work closely with divisional and departmental academic leads and administrators, as well as student representatives and University officers. The team consults departments and course organisers regularly on the development of educational strategy, policy and procedures.
We support in areas such as the development of new courses and other initiatives, changes to teaching examinations and assessment, and compliance with University and the Division's quality assurance requirements.
I am responsible for some special projects and mainly support the Head of Education Policy and Planning and the Assistant Registrar (Graduate School).
I have been working for the University’s Temporary Staffing Service since 2018 and was previously assigned to the Council Secretariat for nine months. Before then, I worked in the Third Sector (latterly with Oxfam GB in the UK and WaterAid in Uganda). I have worked long-term in five African countries and short-term in numerous others across the globe.
