GIC Educator vacancies now open 

Resuscitation Council UK (RCUK) and the Advanced Life Support Group (ALSG) are looking for new Generic Instructor Course (GIC) Educators. 

We are looking to jointly appoint additional Educators to join our existing team of Educators responsible for facilitating Generic Instructor Courses and contributing to educational developments across our organisations. 

As a GIC educator, you would play a hugely important role in developing the life support course instructors of the future. You would provide direction, specialist knowledge, decision-making and leadership to GIC faculties and candidates, and ensure those embarking on their own instructor journey embody the ethos and commitment to high quality and inclusive life support training delivery we expect. You will be passionate about the continual improvement and development of GIC courses and the importance of diversifying our instructor base. 

Educators are normally appointed for a period of three years, but this may be reviewed at any time as considered necessary by either party. This is an appointed role, and not an employed role with RCUK or ALSG. Educators are responsible for invoicing Course Centres for agreed course expensives and educator fees. The educator fee is currently set at £440 per day, and £220 per half-day. 

To apply, you must be able to demonstrate familiarity with issues in continuing medical and healthcare education and have a sound understanding of the principles and practice of adult education. If you are a graduate in adult or healthcare education with at least two years’ experience of teaching in higher education and hold a relevant post-graduate qualification in adult education, this is an excellent opportunity to make a difference.

How to apply: 

Applicants should submit a CV and covering letter by using the online application form on ALSG’s website.  

Attracting a diverse group of GIC Educator applicants is a priority for us, so we are also asking applicants to complete a diversity monitoring form once they complete the application form. We will not use the information provided during the recruitment process itself, but the information we receive will help us to understand whether we are attracting a diverse group of applicants to these vacancies. 

Applications will close on Friday 1st October 2021. 

Interviews will take place either via Zoom or in London between late October and mid-November.
