To provide leadership and coordination for the implementation and maintenance of Risk Assessment and Management Systems (RAMS) across all of ISB’s experiential learning programs. To promote a culture of risk management within the school community and seek to leverage teacher and student support across all aspects of such a culture.
The key goal of this role is to build out the systems and structures needed for a robust RAMS system over 2-3 years and towards the end of this time work to transition the running of the system over to another position (or another type of transition which may prove necessary).
This is a support role, not a teaching/admin role, requiring significant experience in experiential/outdoor education, current knowledge related to creating and implementing risk assessment and management systems in (preferably international) schools, and strong knowledge of research-based risk assessment and management with current industry good practice.
The Off-Site Learning Specialist must be an outstanding team player with excellent communication and interpersonal skills. She/he will work closely with the Service and Experiential Learning Coordinator/Experiential Learning Coordinator and Principals to implement timelines for RAMS at ISB. She/he will plan all experiential learning, including day trips and overnight trips, to ensure compliance with ISB policies and procedures, risk assessment protocols and documentation, etc. The work requires collaboration with Nursing staff, the Professional Learning (PD) team, Security Office, Bus Office, Admissions Office etc. to ensure all aspects of ISB EE RAMS policies and procedures are thoroughly developed and consistently upheld in the system.
We will keep the position open for as long as needed to find the best person for the role. Ideally the person would start within the first semester but a 2nd semester start date (Jan 6th) is also possible.
