E-Learning Designer

Salary: £30,000 pro-rata – 3 days per week (fixed-term, 12-month contract)

Reports to: Digital Product Manager

Hello! We’re InnovateHer. We are on a mission: To get girls ready for the tech industry and the industry ready for girls. 

We run three strands of activity to help us achieve this – our award winning educational programmes for girls, our industry membership network and campaigning to raise awareness on a national level. 

We’re seeking an experienced E-Learning Designer to create engaging content for our platform which is aimed at teens aged 13-16. This role is unique and highly rewarding; you will have the opportunity to impact upon the life chances of young people from underrepresented groups. 

We’ve been delivering educational programmes in schools for over 4 years; but in 2020 we began to deliver our educational work virtually so we could continue to reach our communities (students, teachers and parents). You can view a live version of the eLearning platform at online.innovateher.co.uk

We need you to bring a wealth of expertise relating to designing effective eLearning frameworks and be focussed on improving the student experience.

About you

You are passionate about creating and designing course content for young people, ideally for key stage 3 and 4. You will have in-depth knowledge of how to design engaging learning experiences. You will be able to use design tools, like photoshop, canva, illustrator or similar to create visually appealing lesson plans and videos. You will be able to write effective copy for instructional text, audio and video scripts, using accessibility at the core of your writing and work. You will be good at managing relationships with external stakeholders, producers and suppliers, and used to working collaboratively to achieve a common goal. 

You will enjoy gathering feedback, analysing it and seeing the results of your efforts, putting student satisfaction at the heart of your work. You’ll want to create social impact through your content. You will be our ‘quality control’ function, ensuring that all content is on-brand, high quality and suitable for teens.
