I want to employ an e-tutor to support a group of learners undertaking a programme delivered mostly through a VLE known as WebCT. I am wondering how to develop a person spec/job desc as I would like to incorporate service standards etc. for levels of support to e-learners.

  1. e-Tutor Competencies

    I am a firm believer in writing competency based job descriptions. These allow you to be completely specific about the role and standard of associated behaviours required.

    This being the case, I would recommend that you download the Institute of IT Training (IITT) e-Learning Professional Competency Framework in Adobe Acrobat from:

    This is chunky download (1.88MB) but well worth it.

    The e-Tutor competencies appear on page 8.

    I would also recommend that you review the e-Learners Charter that appears on-line at:

    To streamline the process you could always consider specifying your requirement for a candidate with the CeLP Certificate in e-Tutoring Skills.

    I hope this helps.

    Best wishes
