We are looking for an outstanding educator and leader to serve as Dean Development Lead and coach emerging, school-based leaders at Nova Pioneer's schools in Kenya.

As Dean Development Lead, your primary role will be to coach our emerging leaders (deans and associate deans) to support their schools more effectively through instructional and cultural best practice, ensuring that teachers get higher-quality and more intensive on-the-job coaching than they have ever experienced before.

Our deans are tasked with building a pipeline of homegrown talent in their schools that produces both amazing teachers and amazing results for our students.

Your job is to help them succeed.

Also core to your role will be the development and implementation of operational best practices to ensure the day-to-day smooth operations of our schools in-region, so that our deans can focus on what they do best in instruction and culture.

Key Responsibilities

  • Support school-based deans and associate deans to deliver on the Nova Pioneer vision of teacher development through ongoing coaching and delivery of PD, demos and co-observation
  • Work with Academic Leadership to solidify and codify common teacher coaching practices, and support school-based leadership in mapping a path to instructional excellence at their respective campuses
  • Provide ongoing feedback to Academic and Regional Leadership on the quality of instruction across schools in region
  • Work with Academic Leadership to articulate the vision of an excellent Nova Pioneer classroom, and support school-based leadership in leveraging existing systems — walkthroughs, data summaries, observation tools, PD, learning design, etc. — to further that vision
  • Develop systems, processes, and policies to support our schools in achieving excellence in academic and school operations, including but not limited to areas such as:
  • Emergency preparedness planning
  • Textbook
  • School registration and teacher registration
  • Formulation and revision of school policies
  • Establish guidelines for sharing, implementing, monitoring, documenting, and updating operational systems and processes across the organization
  • Partner with school-based leaders in implementing operations systems
  • You have 4+ years of instructional experience and have led adults in a rigorous, high-expectations school setting (Note: This is a minimum requirement. Candidates without this experience will not be considered!)
  • Experience working in a school network is highly preferred
  • You have demonstrated an ability to improve student achievement and other school outcomes by leading through others, and to improve other people’s performance through coaching and building systems for scale
  • You have experience with and passion for enquiry-based learning, possibly including project-based or expeditionary approaches
  • You are driven by data and know how to use data from student assessments to strengthen and differentiate student learning
  • You are excited about our organizational culture—and in particular, you are fired up to challenge yourself by embracing mutual vulnerability and a firehose of feedback
  • You have a desire to further develop your instructional leadership skills and apply them to transform the lives of African youth
