A former Paramedic Science student has returned to the Northampton fold as the newest lecturer on the team.
Bryn Griffiths qualified from the Foundation course three years ago and previously worked as a graduate teaching assistant at University of Northampton.
He now teaches full-time, four days a week across both the Foundation and BSc Paramedic Science course, whilst working one day a week for the East Midlands Ambulance Service.
On his appointment, Bryn said: “This is my first taste of being an actual lecturer and my role here is split between two days of teaching (mixed theory and practical sessions) and then two days a week organising placements and visiting students in practice to ensure they are progressing well and gaining the experience required to become a Paramedic.
“I did my training at the old Park Campus, a great course although Park was looking a bit old and behind the times. Waterside has really brought the University into the 21st century and the facilities here for Paramedic Science, with the new model ambulance and training mannequins, are great and really reflect that new, modern approach.
“I like to think of myself as a very practical, ‘doing’ lecturer so I’ll be using these skills to develop activities to help our students really take on-board the content of my teaching.”
