We are New York City's top-performing and fastest-growing charter school network, and we are fundamentally reshaping public education. To ensure long-lasting change and a school model that will prepare current and future generations of children from all backgrounds with the subject mastery and skills to succeed in college and life, we have reconceived every aspect of school design, from elementary to high school. We now need a results-driven Training Events Coordinator to join our Education Institute team.
Over the past decade, Success Academies has grown faster than any charter network in the nation, building a vibrant network of 46 elementary, middle and high schools. Our 15,000 children – mostly poor and minority – are out-performing students at top city and suburban schools across New York State. With our oldest students in 11th grade, we are fast approaching the irrefutable proof point that zip code does not determine destiny.
Our goals for our second decade are even more ambitious: to grow to 100 schools, to educate 50,000 children across New York City in a uniquely holistic pre-k-12 system, and to demonstrate that excellence can be achieved at scale. With this rapid growth and trajectory, Success will dramatically increase in the size of our faculty and staff and will need to train thousands of educators every year – not only in Success Academy’s school design and the art and science of exceptional teaching, but also in areas such as managerial capacity, operational excellence, professionalism, and leadership. This is a significant enterprise: each of our educators receives about 13 weeks of intensive year-round training, and our renowned curriculum and training are also in high demand from educators across the country.
To meet these challenges, Success has launched its state-of-the-art Ed Institute, which provides a sophisticated digital environment for our innovative scholar curriculum, adult e-learning courses and other training resources -- combined with the in-person practice and coaching that is foundational to our approach to adult learning. The Ed Institute will give us the capacity to train thousands of our own educators, as well as spur innovation and to share our model and best practices with other charter management organizations and districts around the country.
To bring this critically important endeavor to scale, Success seeks to hire an Training Events Coordinator who will be responsible for logistics and execution of blended learning workshops, as well as supporting multiple projects including training for teachers, senior leaders, operations and Network staff. Our Ed Institute Training Coordinator has the exciting opportunity to…
- Provide facilities and logistics support for on-site training programming and seminars provided by vendors;
