Dean of Instruction and Learning, Eldoret


We are looking for an outstanding educator to serve as Dean of Instruction and Learning and lead professional development for teachers at our upcoming High School campuses in Eldoret. This is an opportunity to help create a transformative school model with the future of Africa’s youth at stake.

As a Dean of Instruction and Learning serving on the school leadership team, you will help the Principal establish an extremely strong and vibrant school culture consistent with Nova Pioneer's core culture principles. However, your primary focus is teacher development. Drawing on support from instructional leaders on Nova Pioneer's network team, you will create a professional development “machine” inside the school: deliberate practice routines and management habits that stretch teachers professionally and give them higher quality, more intensive coaching than they can get anywhere else. You will build a pipeline of homegrown local teacher talent inside the school that produces master teachers and great instructional leaders over time.

You have 4+ years of experience in a rigorous, high-expectations school setting including at least one instructional leadership role (e.g., department chair, grade level lead, teacher coach, etc.)

Job Responsibilities

Set and model a consistent tone of highest expectations, joy, and growth mindset
Lead key school rituals as needed to model and ingrain culture

Education Requirements

You have an exceptional ability to think strategically and yet you sweat the small stuff—people see you as unusually detail-oriented and conscientious
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 learning design skills and apply them to transform the lives of African youth
