Paid placement: Enterprise Learning Resource Officer

Are you enterprising and creative, with good communication Skills?
We’re recruiting for an Enterprise Learning Resource Officer. This will be a 100 hours paid flexible placement over the year, and you’ll get the opportunity to complete a Skills for Work Certificate.

You will work as part of our curricular enterprise team, and take a leading role in developing an exciting new service, USEA ORB – an online resource bank of materials for academic colleagues across the University to use as a starting point for building enterprise into their teaching. Your responsibilities will include:
  • Reviewing existing materials from specific modules, and adapting them to create generic, consistently-formatted and branded template resources
  • Categorising and publishing resources on the USEA ORB webpages
  • Helping to develop USEA ORB and preparing the service for launch to academic colleagues across the University
  • Meeting with academics to prepare case studies of enterprising teaching. This will include conducting both formal and informal interviews, preparing written reports, or producing podcasts, videos and other multimedia resources to present enterprising learning and teaching as part of USEA ORB (training in multimedia production can be provided).

    I am one of three Enterprise Learning Development Officers within USE, working with the Faculty of Engineering, and our International Faculty in Thessaloniki. I am interested in language and how people communicate, as well as learning and development. I previously worked as a University Teacher in Linguistics (the scientific study of language), and investigated how young children learn to speak. With experience of designing and delivering enterprise education from primary school to university level, I enjoy developing innovative learning and teaching experiences for students, and am particularly interested in using technology to enhance and provide enterprising learning opportunities.
