Leadership & Development Department
The Leadership & Development Department (L&D) is responsible for the professional development of all school staff, including teachers and school leaders. Within L&D we design the core content for all professional development sessions, including intensive residential programs of 3 days to 3 weeks, as well as ongoing professional development that may happen in person, online, or through other channels. We also have leaders in the field who engage with school leaders and teachers every day, ensuring ongoing professional development, performance management, and intensive coaching. We are always seeking effective ways of ensuring every adult in every school is supported with data-driven practices, and supported to become a leader and mentor to the children they serve. We measure our success through the learning outcomes of the children in the classroom, and overall classroom and school management strength. We are performance-driven.
Delivery excellence, integrity, quality and systematization are all part of ensuring successful implementation of induction training and on-going professional development. You will work closely with the Leadership & Development Department, Shared Services, who lead the design of induction training and professional development sessions delivered in each territory. As an individual contributor, the Leadership & Development Manager will project manage all residential and/or induction training sessions for school staff, both school leaders and teachers. The complexity of this cannot be understated — [in a given year there may be 3 rounds of induction training each with 100-200 teachers and school leaders, managing 6 support office staff to deliver these trainings. We hope to scale these training in the future to thousands of school staff as our programming grows.] The importance of success of this training cannot be understated — it is the foundation for success of all of our programming, by ensuring that each teacher and school leader leaves training with a new vision for their school and classroom, new practices for classroom management, new understanding of structured pedagogy and its use, and knowledge of critical school management practices. In short, at the end of induction training to the program, each teacher and school leader should be excited and confident to bring significant positive change to his or her classroom and school.
As a collaborator, the Leadership & Development Manager will be responsible for coordinating with Shared Services Leadership & Development on the content of induction training and ongoing scheduled professional development modules, and manage direct reports in this production and collaboration. In addition, the Leadership & Development Manager will work directly with the Schools Director to use performance and behavioral data of school leaders and teachers to smartly deliver time-sensitive “refresher” training on core modules and/or custom or newly designed content for Supervisors of schools to use in school-based training and coaching.
Finally, as a manager, the Leadership & Development Manager will ensure that members of the Leadership & Development team in the territory have a clear work plan, and are productively working in tandem to generate achievement in schools. The Leadership & Development Manager will during times of large-scale induction training, manage Supervisors, School Management to deliver training in concert with the vision of Leadership & Development. It is your job to train, mentor, and evaluate every person leading a training classroom each step of the way, ensuring that they achieve ambitious outcomes with our school leaders and teachers. This role reports to the Schools Director.
