It has been a pleasure to work with Stephen across a range of complex projects. His attention to detail and flexibility in his editing and proofreading has allowed us to create a range of high-quality titles within tight deadlines and budgets.
Highly recommended and I look forward to working with him again.
Project Editor at PEARSON EDUCATION
For six years I worked for a leading awarding organisation.
I have extensive experience in preparing content for learners, tutors and assessors that complies with Ofqual’s General Conditions of Recognition and other regulatory and guidance documents such as the Department for Education’s Technical and applied qualifications for 14 to 19 year olds: technical guidance for awarding organisations.
As a Qualifications Development Manager, I supervised the development of regulated vocational qualifications, including several market-leading Early Years Educator qualifications.
I contributed my technical writing skills to specific unit content for numerous qualifications, working alongside subject experts to ensure that the final products were fit for purpose and complied with regulations.
I wrote, edited and proofread hundreds of qualification specifications and related support materials. I also proofread a wide range of marketing and promotional materials, newsletters, customer communications, policies and procedures, and website content.
As Qualifications Maintenance Manager, I was responsible for the maintenance of all print and online support materials.
I collaborated on a range of projects with in-house and external subject experts, education and training providers, Local Authorities, Sector Skills Councils, employers and professional membership organisations such as PACEY (Professional Association for Childcare and Early Years).
I also worked closely with key sector organisations, including Ofqual, UCAS and the Department for Education (DfE), and became an expert on the DfE's requirements for vocational qualifications on the Performance Tables.
