You'll be tasked with leading an Instructional Design team in our Cambridge office. This is not a program design role (though it will require creativity!); we are looking for a candidate who is focused on execution and implementation & who can demonstrate previous experience with the same. You are fearsomely organized and detail-oriented; a strong communicator; and a dedicated people manager who can build a positive & effective team.
You & your team will focus on high-leverage projects for Instructional Design, untangling process knots, building systems, & creating instructional materials in places where a focus on execution would deliver the greatest gains for our pupils. The team’s assignment is likely to evolve as organizational priorities shift.
By joining the Instructional Design department, you join a group of people working to make a difference in the world. In the countries in which we operate, the number of pupils attending school is soaring, but the quality of most schools, according to international experts, is low. Members of the Instructional Design Department invest time in producing quality learning materials to improve thousands of children’s daily academic experience.
