The eCom Way: Identifying Talent

Instructional Design is a brilliant skill and one that will be needed even more in the future. Find out how we're playing our Part to help anyone interested in getting started in ID.

This is the seccond in a series of blogs on The eCom Way, by our Managing Director, Wendy Edie. Wendy has 15 years of experience in the eLearning industry and as well as driving the business, she ensures our values are at the heart of everything we do. In this blog series, Wendy explains why we’re different, why we care and why we’d love to work with you.

The need for ID

If we were based in Brighton it would be a whole different story, but up here in the East of Scotland there is not a lot of people with work experience in learning technology and even less so for Instructional Design (ID). It’s a real shame as ID is a brilliant skill and one that will be needed even more in the future.

The stumbling blocks seem to be overcoming the fact that there is no real traditional entry level (at the moment) or a confirmed career path (that also, for the moment). 

ID as a career

Our lovely ID people at eCom HQ come from a mix of backgrounds from medical to librarian. There is no common thread apart from loving how people learn.   That’s why we decided to do something to promote this skill and create a unique course to inspire people to see ID as a career opportunity.

Playing our Part

We have created a free beginner’s course for anyone interested in getting started in ID.  This course is available with a free trial of eNetAuthor, enabling you to have the right tools to put your new skills to use. The course is accredited by eCom Scotland, with an open badge for Instructional Design – Beginners.

If this sparks your interest, or you feel you already have the right mix of skills to relish the challenges ID brings, then there is no better place to start your career in ID than at eCom.  Why not check out our current Instructional Designer Vacancy.
