Centre for Interprofessional Education and Learning

Recruiting facilitators

The Centre for Interprofessional Education and Learning seeks to engage staff from all health and social care disciplines both in academia and practice.  Our undergraduate teaching activities depend on the  contribution of staff who facilitate small group work with first, second and final year students at various points during the academic year.  Staff can also contribute as members of our Centre for Interprofessional Learning Interfaculty Working Group which decides on CIEL policy and works with schools to implement and develop IPL.

If you are interested in getting involved full details of all of our undergraduate teaching are available on our Workspace on the University's intranet.  Non-University staff please contact Linda Kelly directly for further details.
