Job Description for Education Director

Education directors may have a variety of roles and responsibilities depending on the institution for which they work. For example, if they work for a large network of early childhood education outlets, they would interact with small children and their family on a daily basis. In other settings, such as institutions of higher learning, the education director is akin to (or even a replacement title for) the dean of academic affairs. There is also usually a supervisory component to this position. For example, an education director may provide performance reviews for the instructors working under them and settling any disputes that may arise. Planning, staffing, and coordination skills are needed to ensure that all positions are covered during the academic calendar, as well as to arrange any visits required for accreditation purposes. Education directors are expected to oversee and provide leadership to the instructors of an institution (or a department within the institution) and they help create and approve new curriculum and train the school’s instructors.
