E-Learning Development and Capacity Building Worker

  • Full time
  • £23,187
  • Glasgow
  • Closing 22nd July 2020

SDF has been building its e-learning capacity now for several years, building a range of well used packages to support other workstreams and on commission. With the advent of COVID-19, there has been a massive increase in the use of the e-learning provision, alongside a significant increase in the demand to create further packages. This demand arises from an increase in the use of blended learning, incorporating elements of e-learning into broader packages, and more directly commissioned elements. As a result of this, this post has been created to support the E-Learning Development Officer to develop more courses.

The post holder will support the development of SDF’s e-learning provision on a day-to-day basis and liaise with colleagues to develop content and make recommendations for longer term development. Key skills include a general understanding of design accessibility, good principles and practice in e-learning development and design; as well as excellent communication skills and ability to write effectively and communicate complex information simply.

SDF offer staff excellent terms and conditions. This post is offered on a 35hr working week, with flexi time, pension and generous annual leave and public holidays.

For an informal conversation about any aspect of the role please contact Richard Bloodworth via email on richardb@sdf.org.uk in the first instance.
