Job Description for Curriculum Manager
Curriculum managers work closely with teachers and other school administrators to determine the best plan for the school's curriculum, as well as policies and procedures for evaluating these standards, observing lectures and classes, helping to develop an effective self-evaluation process, and monitoring the school's overall progress.Read More...
The work of a curriculum manager requires effective organization, as well as critical and analytical thinking skills, and they use both traditional and technological methods to organize and evaluate data and help ensure the best curriculum for the school is developed based on that data. They work mostly indoors, but may occasionally work outdoors depending on the nature of particular courses. Many curriculum managers begin as teachers and may be hired by schools of all levels, both private and public, and some also work in a military position for military academies.
A college degree, teaching qualification, and prior experience in the field are generally required for this position. Hours and schedules are not strict, though curriculum managers may occasionally need to work weekends or evenings with teachers and staff to plan for the future. They may also observe classes in real time to track progress and operations in the school.
