Descrição

About the Role/Purpose:

Big Picture Learning (BPL) seeks a School Leadership & Innovation Partner to support multiple initiatives across states in the U.S. Midwest and Southeastern states. This position will support leaders and educators in providing student-driven learning opportunities, refining practice and driving school improvement. School Leadership & Innovation Partners model continuous improvement, relationship- and trust-building, collaboration, and creative solution-making. Along with supporting schools in the BPL network, this position will also work to develop new partnerships, expanding the influence of student-driven learning across the U.S.


Primary Responsibilities: specific scope includes, but is not limited to, the following:

  • Provide school and leadership coaching and professional development training to select schools in the Midwest and Southern states.
  • Support implementation of BPL's 10 distinguishers, its student-centered real-world program model, the internship management system ImBlaze, and its proprietary virtual professional development program for advisors & internship coordinators, Learning Big Picture, in these areas.
  • Participate in and provide facilitation at conferences on behalf of Big Picture Learning.
  • Develop, expand, and support BPL’s networking efforts to fulfill Big Picture Learning’s mission, vision and priorities. 
  • Lead and support Communities of Practice to advance BPL’s growth and improvement of school support.
  • Provide regular project reporting, through face-to-face and virtual meeting updates, and formal and informal written reports using technology and digital tools (ie. Salesforce, Google Suite, etc).
  • Collaborate with BPL’s National School Network Director, team of Directors, and National Director of Partnerships.
  • Participate in organization-wide meetings and events.
  • Participate in School Leadership & Innovation Partner collaborative learning & planning sessions. 
  • Willingness to travel 25-40% of time.
  • Support efforts to advance DEI (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion) and antiracism on a micro (self), meso (organization), and macro (systems-level/external) level.
  • Support, participate in, and attend annual BPL conferences and other org-wide events as needed.
  • Meet regularly with assigned Direct Support, collaboratively build a learning plan, participate in formal evaluation process.
  • Other responsibilities may be assigned based on organizational need and individual skills and interests.


Desired Credentials & Experience:

While there may be benefits to a BA, MEd, MBA, MPA, or related advanced degree, research demonstrates that education requirements can be a deterrent for qualified candidates to apply and can perpetuate gender and racial disparities. We encourage all candidates with the professional experiences and leadership qualities outlined in this position specification to apply.  


  • 5+ years’ experience facilitating professional development/coaching
  • 5+ years in teaching/leadership 
  • Experience/familiarity with BPL design
  • Documented track record of success working with schools/teams serving:
  • Students growing up in poverty
  • Students of color
  • Students with Learning Disabilities
  • Immigrant Youth & English Language Learners
  • Learners dealing with trauma


Qualifications

Candidates for this position must share our passion and commitment for rethinking the possibilities of education for decades to come. We steadfastly believe that students should be at the center of their own learning and that education (in particular public education) is due for a reorientation that allows students to be confident in the pursuit of their own passions and interests.


The geographic spread of BPL’s work and the fact that all BPL staff work virtually, requires individuals to have strong internal accountability.  The organizational culture supports flexible and contextually appropriate decision making processes. As a result, individuals who thrive in BPL are comfortable juggling multiple projects and prioritizing tasks, advancing the work in the face of uncertainty, willing to take risks, exhibit entrepreneurial behaviors, take ownership and see tasks and ideas through from conception to implementation, and possess the communication and interpersonal skills needed to work well with people at all levels of the organization.


Organizational Skills

  • Steadfast belief that students should be at the center of their own learning and that education (in particular public education) is due for a reorientation that allows students to be confident in the pursuit of their own passions and interests.
  • Strong internal accountability (especially important due to the geographic spread of BPL’s work and our virtual teams), comfort juggling multiple projects and prioritizing tasks, and the ability to work remotely in distributed teams across multiple time zones.
  • Ability to exhibit entrepreneurial behaviors, take ownership, and see tasks and ideas through from conception to implementation.
  • Excellent interpersonal communication skills (speaking, writing, listening) in person and virtually.
  • Commitment to continuous improvement, a relentless approach to growth and learning, and an openness to constructive critical feedback.
  • Collegial and empathetic approach to working with others, while bringing a creative, flexible and thoughtful approach to your work.
  • Ability to use - or quickly learn - multiple tech platforms (i.e., Google Suite, Salesforce, Asana).
