Directorate of Education, Research and Innovation (DERI)
Junior Digital Learning Developer
We are looking for a Junior Digital Learning Developer to join the fast-paced and innovative Technology Enhanced Learning Team within the Directorate of Education, Research and Innovation (DERI). Our team is diverse and friendly and puts helping others at the heart of all we do. This position will allow us to develop the Trust’s Digital Learning in exciting new ways, creating engaging and effective learning content for our staff and students.
The successful candidate will work full time (37.5 hours) and will be needed to be able to work inside ‘Core Hours’ of Monday-Friday, 8am-6pm. It is essential that you can work flexibly to meet the needs of the service and can respond quickly to change. This position will initially require attendance to either the Burnley or Blackburn sites (negotiable) but agile working, including home working, may be possible depending on circumstances. This contract is temporary to the end of March 2022.
You will need creative flair and an interest in how learning and technology intersect. This is an excellent opportunity to build skills in a highly sought-after technical field. You will be interacting with all levels of staff including subject matter experts, and will need to be able to conduct yourself professionally and confidently.
This is an exciting opportunity that incorporates a wide variety of duties, some of which are:
- To work with SMEs, trainers and staff in divisions to highlight opportunities where digital tools and learning can enhance or support the delivery of existing educational programmes
- To help capture content including images, videos and 360 content using the Trust-provided AV equipment
- To help in the development engaging learning experiences using resource authoring tools such as Articulate, Vyond, 3dVista and other creation and editing tools
- To learn how and why we integrate the learning onto the Trust Learning Management System (Totara) and national platforms such a e-Learning for Healthcare and the HEE Learning Hub.
- To ensure robust processes are followed in respect of the development and quality assurance of digital learning content.
It is essential you have at least level 2 functional skills in Maths and English, are well-versed in the use of Microsoft Office Applications, and are not daunted by the pace of change that comes with working in a technology-centric environment.
Experience of working in a similar setting, creating digital media content (ideally educational), is advantageous to this role, as is an interest in how technology can assist learning.
