College Academic Vocational Executive – Saudi Arabia
We seek a senior, post secondary academic/vocational executive to serve as provider's head for a technical college transformation project in Saudi Arabia. The Provider Head leads a team of over 15 instructional and administrative coaches who are engaged in a three-year (minimum) effort to uplift technical colleges in Saudi Arabia as part of a massive, nationwide initiative to revamp the entire college-level vocational training system. The team coaches every member of the College’s faculty and staff through a diverse range of sustained, intensive professional development activities focused around three clusters of outcomes: increasing student success; enhancing instructional performance; and improving campus operational capabilities.
The mandate for improvement is very broad: it includes developing new programs (including the College’s first four-year degrees), greatly improving existing programs, creating new pathways to graduate employment, exploring new models of workforce and community development, expanding the student success pipeline from within-school-only to lifelong learning, greatly expanding campus operational capabilities and administrative competencies; and creating new career pathways for College personnel.
The Provider Head will work intensively and collaboratively with the Dean (College CEO), in a mentoring/coaching relationship. Broad and deep experience in college-level educational/vocational leadership will be essential to forging the necessary relationships and providing the needed leadership. Community college experience will be particularly valuable. In addition to demonstrated competence in mentoring academic leaders, a passion for educational innovation and improvement will be essential attributes of the successful candidate.
Essential Job Functions:
Coach a college-level CEO (the Dean): collaborate on and implement a Personal Learning Plan for the Dean; address and support motivation; provide feedback, diagnose obstacles, identify effective remedies for those obstacles from among the diverse project resources, and coordinate the effective provision of those remedies to the Dean.
Represent the project effectively to key government, educational, and labor-market stakeholders.
Reflect and promote the project’s core values, including but not limited to: the inherent value of education and dignity of work; sustainable human-resource developmental strategies; rigorous application of continuous quality improvement principles and practices; and evidence based, student centric decision making.
Supervise team members dispersed at multiple campuses, including design and supervision of managerial controls and design and oversight of intensive team inservice professional development activities. Participate in hiring replacement team members if needed.
Serve as a subject matter expert (SME) in academic/vocational leadership for subordinate coaches tasked with developing current College managers into future College leaders.
Serve as the public face of the project in community and media activities.
Participate in special projects and perform other duties as assigned.
