EBE is looking for a Course Developer and Analyst to come and join the team behind our exciting Great Teaching Toolkit project.
We’re looking to grow our stable of acclaimed online professional development programmes, for use by thousands of teachers every year both in the UK and around the world. As our new Course Developer and Analyst, you’ll be responsible for bringing our EBE brand of world-class online learning to new content areas crucial to underpinning great teaching, and for improving the quality of teaching in thousands of classrooms worldwide.
Your role will have two key responsibilities:
- Working with the EBE team internally and external experts to develop and ensure the timely launch of online professional development programmes,
- Analysis of usage data for EBE’s online professional development programmes, and the generation of insights that guide ongoing improvements.
The role is fixed-term to start, with a view to a permanent appointment, and we would be open to a temporary secondment from an existing employer. Read on for more details and to find out how to apply.
Equality and diversity
EBE recognises the positive value of diversity, promotes equality and challenges discrimination. We welcome and encourage job applications from people of all genders and backgrounds. We particularly welcome applications from disabled and Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) candidates, as BAME and disabled people are currently under-represented at EBE.
Location: Based out of our Sunderland office, though working remotely currently. We are also open to full remote working in future for the right candidate.
Salary: Competitive, dependent on experience
Start date: As soon as possible
Contract: Full-time fixed-term, to end Dec 2021 (with a view to a permanent role from there; we are open to temporary secondments from an existing employer, given the current situation)
Working hours and flexibility: Core hours are 10am-3pm Monday to Friday, though flexible working is encouraged.
- Uncapped annual leave
- NEST pension scheme
- Healthy lunch options and gym membership contributions (pandemics allowing!)
- Travel opportunities
- And much more!
The Course Developer and Analyst will build and grow the stable of EBE courses as a key part of our Great Teaching Toolkit offering, working with both internal and external stakeholders to do so. The key aspects of the role are as follows:
- Work with the Director of Education, Education Team, Course Architect and content creator(s) to build and shape our suite of courses
- Build on and enhance the acclaimed EBE style of online learning
- Oversee the content creation process to ensure course building runs to schedule, and we are able to launch on time
- Coordinate with the relevant staff any multimedia elements (headshot or school-based videos, audio clips, etc.) that need to be produced or recorded
- Become familiar with Thinkific, our course platform, to be able to load content and to access key usage reports
- Analyse usage patterns in existing and future courses, produce insights, and action improvements to drive increases in learner outcomes, course completion and satisfaction rates
We don’t expect that the right person will be an expert in all of these things immediately – however, a willingness to learn and develop new skills, and an enjoyment in a varied workplace and job are key to every EBE team member.
You can read all of EBE’s core capabilities here – what we expect from everyone in the team – and below, you can read the key details pertaining to this role. That said, if you are unsure whether you meet some or all of the criteria below, but are excited by the opportunity nevertheless, we encourage you to send in an application, as some of these skills are developable with guidance and experience.
The Course Developer and Analyst is:
- Driven and motivated: capable of working remotely, and getting things done

- A good communicator, both remotely and in-person, and able to maintain and develop relationships inside and outside of the organisation
- Able to manage projects in a timely and organised fashion, working with internal and external stakeholders alike
- Resilient and able to deal with a degree of uncertainty
