Job Description for Educational Consultant
Educational consultants are professionals who provide advice and guidance regarding education planning to students, parents, or organizations. They have significant knowledge of curricula in various schools, as well as current issues that may be occurring in classrooms or school districts in general. Often, their consultations are intended to help parents and students make decisions regarding high school and college options; they may also assist students in the process of applying and enrolling for classes. In other cases, they may be employed by organizations for other types of work.Read More...
Under employers such as schools and local governments, educational consultants may be required to develop educational programs, assist schools in adapting to changing curricula, or conduct research in particular areas of education.
Educational consultants are often self-employed, working independently for individuals or organizations. They may not work alongside colleagues or bosses, but their job does require frequent interaction. Aside from regular communication with clients, they may also keep contacts in various other organizations, such as within universities or specific industries. Their job is typically during a regular work-week, but they may occasionally find it necessary to work after-hours or on weekends.
If employed by a school district, educational consultants receive paid time-off, vacation, and pensions. The work is mostly non-physical, but may require some traveling to meet individual clients or contacts. The ability to use a computer is essential. They are usually required to hold at least a Bachelor's degree in Instruction and Curriculum, and some school districts will only accept consultants with at least a Master's degree along with a teaching certificate.
