Description

Job Summary:

The Professional Development Framework developed by the PSPD team allocates a greater amount of focus on school-led, school-based professional development activities. Principal amongst these activities is the enactment and management of digital and in-school professional learning communities. To support effective implementation of these educator communities, the AM PLCs will manage the stream of content documented in the different PLC calendars for teachers and principals, curate fortnightly prompts, and support AMs in the moderation of WhatsApp groups.

Job Responsibilities:

  • Development and maintenance of various practitioner PLCs, clusters according to common needs, geographies and experiences.
  • Planning of a PD calendar for various cohorts of practitioners, strategically reinforcing content from previous PD activities, creating meaningful link with practices or activities the teachers will be engaging in at school, and introducing new knowledge to improve practice.
  • Curating practice and reflective prompts for each theme in the calendar in consultation with the various program leads.
  • Ensuring that the operating rhythm of PLCs remains consistent – that documents are maintained at school level, that practitioner artefacts are archived in the repository, moderator and facilitator assignments are made for each group etc.
  • Work with the other members of the PD team to create and introduce new content through digital PLCs whenever needed.
  • Monitor participation across various PLCs to assess the quality of exchange, the overall level of engagement and excitement of participants, to see where intercessions are needed to facilitate better transfer.
  • Maintain a central record of good practices that can inform future PD content, or even influence design of other programs.
  • Support the Manager PD in the implementation of other on-going PD initiatives.

Required Skills

  • Understanding of educator experiences and needs in relation to professional practice in and outside of the classroom
  • Understanding of cooperative and communal learning experiences, how they can be designed to promote better transfer to elevate the overall quality of a practitioner cohort
  • Creativity
  • Stick-to-itiveness to drive a novel program to success and improvement

Education

Undergraduate or Graduate study in Education Policy or Management, or related disciplines would be of value

Experience

1-2 years of experience preferred; however, fresh graduates are also encouraged to apply. Teaching experience or front-end understanding of teacher experiences and needs as a teacher developer would be of great benefit to this role.
