eLearning support Volunteer

‘Quick learner with keen interest in learning and technology’

War Child Holland is on a journey towards becoming a learning organisation. We are excited to scale our work and co-create our programme activities with partner organisations to reach more children. Through building capabilities of our staff and partners, learning will be playing a major role in reaching more children with quality.

  • Hands-on support to staff in developing learning paths and interactive manuals (storyboarding, learning design, learner profiling, learning needs, didactical guidance, develop activities and build the learning in our platform, developing badges)
  • Support with curation of existing learning materials from other providers to be integrated within the learning platform.

The e-learning support volunteer is part of the Programme Quality Team, and reports to the learning organisation manager.

  • Keen interest in blended/e-learning and learning and technology
  • Enjoy supporting your colleagues in development of online and blended learning solutions;

  • Ideally, relevant experience or study(ing) education, pedagogy, social science, technology, programming, video editing or other related fields – this is a great opportunity to build up experience as e-learning developer/instructional designer
  • Proficient English speaker and writer. French/Spanish/Arabic are a plus
  • Available 1-3 days per week, starting as soon as possible for a period of 4-6 months (extension possible).

Our offer

  • The position offers you the opportunity to help you gain relevant job experience to start a career in the area of e-learning and/or Learning &Development, or to develop yourself in a new area of work.
  • Due to the current situation you are expected to work mostly from home, with occasional face-to -face meetings. As a volunteer you will receive a commuting allowance (if you have to come to the office)

  • Pleasant working conditions, good atmosphere, great colleagues and of course the meaningful purpose of our work!
