London Ambulance Service NHS Trust is the busiest emergency ambulance service in the UK with over 4,500 staff who works across a wide range of roles. Our service operates over an area of approximately 620 square miles across London based in 70 ambulance stations. 

We serve more than eight million people who live and work in the London area. Our main role is to respond to emergency 999 calls, getting medical help to patients who have serious or life-threatening injuries or illnesses as quickly as possible.

However, many of our patients have less serious illnesses or injuries, and do not need to be sent an ambulance on blue lights and sirens. Often these patients will receive more appropriate care somewhere other than at hospital and so we provide a range of care to them, recognising that many have complex problems or long-term medical conditions. We also provide clinical assessments over the phone to more callers with less serious illnesses and injuries. 

As an integral part of the NHS in London, we work closely with hospitals and other healthcare professionals, as well as with other emergency services. We are also central to planning for, and responding to, large-scale events or major incidents in the capital. 

In everything we do, we will provide Care, Clinical excellence and commitment. 

Care - Helping people when they need us; treating people with compassion, dignity and respect; having pride in our work and our organisation.

Clinical excellence - Giving our patients the best possible care; leading and sharing best clinical practice; using staff and patient feedback and experience to improve our care.

Commitment -Setting high standards and delivering against them; supporting our staff to grow, develop and thrive; Learning and growing to deliver continual improvement.


The Department of Clinical Education and Standards is advertising for the Post of:  Higher Education Link Tutor LAS Academy/West London Universities, Band 7.

We currently have 84 students studying on year one and two of our two year LAS diploma in paramedic science with aspirations to increase the paramedic development opportunities provided by the LAS. In addition we are also developing a BSc (Hons) with Buckinghamshire New University and a MSc with University of West London. We will be supporting student paramedics via these programmes over the coming years.  The LAS Academy is situated at Fulham Education Centre, Buckinghamshire New University is situated in Uxbridge NW London and the University of West London is situated in Ealing. The successful candidate will be based at Fulham LAS Education Centre, with the requirements to attend Buckinghamshire New University, Uxbirdge Campus and the University of West London Ealing campus on a regular basis.

The role will involve programme development, module lead role within the academy, initial student orientation, pastoral support, practice education, practice placement management, practice educator development and recruitment activities. It will also require the candidate to work closely with the practice placement team to ensure that students attain high quality placements within the LAS and wider health service. This opportunity is ideal for a graduate tutor.  The candidate must be a LAS role model and leader with well-defined management skill and the ability to work and manage independently and remotely. There will be a requirement to teach the Certificate in Practice education at level 6, so candidates will be required to hold or be working towards a PGCE in learning and teaching.

Please apply via track jobs with an outline of how you meet the specifications and what you can bring to the role in terms of experience and innovation.
