I am currently recruiting writers and quality assurers for DSDWEB.
This is Dan, owner of DSDWEB.co.uk.
DSDWEB has helped thousands of health and social care professionals improve their knowledge, skills and understanding and achieve their qualifications by providing free online study resources.
However, as a one-man-band, I simply do not have the time (and in some cases, the relevant experience and expertise) to keep up with the demand.
In addition, the study guides must be regularly checked to ensure that they provide the very best quality. Sometimes, the study guides contain ommissions or errors and sometimes they become out-of-date (for example, if there is a change in legislation or best practice).
Therefore, I am looking for individuals with experience in the health and social care sector (particularly trainers and assessors) to assist with writing study guides and assuring the quality of existing study guides.
These roles are flexible and can be completed in your own time, however once a task is accepted, it is expected that it will be completed within the agreed timescales.
THIS IS A NOT A FULL-TIME JOB. THIS IS A FREELANCING ROLE AND WILL BE PAID ON A PER-TASK BASIS (see below).
It would suit somebody that has a bit of spare time and wants to earn a little extra cash.
The Writer role involves writing study guides for the optional units listed in the links above (excluding optional units already written).
Each optional unit is formatted with the title at the top and is split into learning outcomes and assessment criteria. The Writer will tackle each assessment criteria in turn and provide useful information to support the learner with their studies. An example of an optional unit is here.
The study guides must be very detailed and any points should be backed up with relevant evidence.
The successful applicants will have excellent written English skills as well as the relevant skills and experience for the optional unit they are writing. For example, if writing a study guide for an optional unit related to dementia, the writer should have previously worked with individuals with dementia.
A payment of £40 will be made for each study guide accepted for use on DSDWEB.co.uk, with the possibility of an increased fee if the quality is sufficiently high.
The Quality Assurer role involves reading existing study guides and checking them for errors.
This can include spelling and grammar mistakes as well as inaccuracies in the information provided. It will also be expected that the Quality Assurer will make recommendations about how the study guide could be improved.
The successful applicant will have excellent reading skills and an eye for detail as well as up-to-date knowledge of the health and social care sector. Experience in a training or assessing role would be advantageous but not necessary.
A payment of £20 will be made for each unit or Care Certificate standard checked, with the possibility of an increased fee if the quality is sufficiently high.
