Position Vacancy - Program Coordinator, National Network for Educational Renewal through Residencies (NNER2)
SummaryPREPARED TO TEACH at Bank Street College is part of a national project submitted to the federal SEED grant program, which will announce awardees in September, 2018. Based on prior feedback on federal grants, we anticipate that this application will be competitive, though we will not know whether it will be chosen for funding until awardees are announced. While we await the funding decision, we are engaging initial discussions for the positions the grant would fund. Hiring for the positions would be pending funding awards.
The project will, pending funding, be seeking a Program Coordinator to play a key role in supporting five partnerships sites that are embarking on a journey to redesign teacher preparation and development. If funded, beginning in October, the project, called the National Network for Educational Renewal through Residencies NNER2, will work with 31 schools across 11 school districts, in partnership with five institutions of higher education. The NNER2 Program Coordinator will support the day to day coordination of the fiscal, administrative, and operational activities of the grant project. The responsibilities also will include supporting ongoing grant planning and administration in collaboration with the NNER Executive Director, budget management and control assistance for NNER and NNER2 project sites, and technical assistance regarding program implementation and administration. The Program Coordinator will serve as the day-to-day internal and external operational/administrative liaison between all NNER2 project sites and partners and will assist with program marketing and reporting/dissemination efforts.
NNER2 would be funded by the U.S. Department of Education. The goals of the project meet federal grant requirements to help districts improve their professional development and recruitment systems and to support schools in their efforts to strengthen teacher quality. The NNER2 project design uses an integrated pre-service teacher residency training approach coupled with strong mentor teacher development and school-based improvements in content and pedagogy supported by higher education faculty both in education and in arts and sciences. In addition, these local sites are part of a learning community that will convene virtually each month and twice yearly in person to engage in focused learning activities to accelerate the exchange of promising practices and help promote improvements in their systems. The Program Coordinator will work closely with the NNER Executive Director and the project director to develop check-in processes, foster strong relationships, gather and create resources for partner sites, design and lead meetings, develop reporting mechanisms, and ensure the grant meets its stated goals.
Travel is required for this position, as partner site visits are crucial to the ability to document program models and change efforts that can facilitate broader understanding of the approaches NNER2 develops. Successful candidates will exhibit a combination of personal attributes, including flexibility, persistence, attention to detail, entrepreneurialism, and a focus on possibilities. Understanding issues in teacher preparation, research methodology, and/or public policy will also be helpful to the success of the project. Cover letters should address these domains.
Start Date: October 1, 2018, pending award of funding
This position, if funded, would initially be approved for funding through September 30th, 2021. Continuation through September 30th, 2023 is contingent on federal budget appropriations and continued successful annual work in the grant.
