Unfortunately, for the second time within two years I find myself in the unfortunate position of looking for work during these difficult economic times, due to being once again made redundant due to centre closure where I previously worked. I am a qualified post-16 Tutor / Trainer, learning practitioner, educator and IT specialist based in Plymouth, UK. If any prospective employers are interested in utilising my skills, experience, knowledge and qualifications in the areas of delivering, managing and supporting e-learning, learning and development, training, project based roles, IT and Internet or any other relevant vacancies then please view the following work related activities and content available on my website, blog and other social media that maybe of interest.
I thank you for your interest and look forward to hearing from you regarding any possible job opportunities.
UPDATE: Since this blog post was published I have successfully secured employment.

I have recently launched my YouTube Channel, which features a selection of uploaded videos / clips featuring me to showcase my work activities. The clips which are currently available on the channel include extracts from videos shown at past conferences to highlight the development, success and the sustainability of the successful workplace learning centre I previously managed and developed. They also illustrate some benefits of workplace learning, e-learning courses and partnership working.
Eventually, more clips will be uploaded. To view the YouTube Channel go to http://www.youtube.com/dpmassey

During our Learning Services Conference, I delivered a workshop on e-learning with a colleague. The workshop was repeated three times during the conference on each day of the three days it was held between 19th February and 21st February, to ensure all delegates were able to attend and participate within the session.
The purpose of the workshop was to provide information and a demonstration of the new e-learning Skills for Life project, e-learning opportunities available, how the system works, activity to get delegates thinking of possible barriers to Skills for Life via e-learning, feedback problems and presented some typical barriers, discussed the timeline, training requirements and new developments in relation to the project. Over 120 delegates attended the event, which was the 6th Learning Services Conference held in Cardiff, Wales.
