About the Society
The Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD) is a registered educational charity and membership association. Our mission is to educate the public in the art of dancing in all its forms: to promote knowledge of dance; provide up-to-date techniques for members and maintain and improve teaching standards.
With approximately 6,000 members in over 55 countries worldwide, the Society conducts over 120,000 examinations each year. We were recently listed by Ofqual as one of the top 20 largest awarding organisations in England and in the top 5 for delivery of performing arts examinations.
The Society aspires to be a world leader in dance education, setting the benchmark for best practice through our extensive syllabi and teacher training. We are committed to becoming a dynamic, future-focused organisation that promotes the social, cultural, physical and educational benefits of dance for all.
Summary of role
The Society is keen to retire our physical DVD and CD syllabus products and move the content to an online e-commerce platform to make this content more accessible to our teachers. The scope of this three-month project is to collate, catalogue, and upload our most popular products onto our chosen archival storage solution (TBC) and make versions available on our e-commerce platform – Sellfy.
The post-holder will be establishing a cataloguing system for our syllabus products to facilitate ease of access and ensure long term preservation. They will be responsible for uploading content to Sellfy, with the appropriate product descriptions, imagery and metadata.
They will be responsible for the management, administration and delivery of this project which is the first step towards a larger digitisation project of all our learning materials.
