The Senior Manager, Jurisdiction/BCTEA Curriculum position is an important role in FNESC’s Jurisdiction/BCTEA Curriculum team. This position reports to the Executive Director and would hold one direct report.

The Senior Manager will support and develop the collaborative partnership between British Columbia and FNESC on education issues to advance Jurisdiction and the BC Tripartite Education Agreement (BCTEA) initiatives including, joint initiatives on curriculum development and implementation, and exams.

Since 1992, FNESC, led by a strong and diverse board of over 125 First Nations community representatives, has worked in partnership with the First Nations School Association (FNSA), and the Indigenous Adult Higher Learning Association (IAHLA). Communications, research, partnership-building, resource development and advocacy are all part of the work we do to advance issues in First Nations education.

  • Keeps abreast of developments with BC First Nations, education partners, government agencies, boards, provincial and national working groups, political bodies and other education stakeholders. Conducts research in areas of curriculum, graduation requirements, exams, student assessments and other key areas;
  • Manages and consults with the Ministry of Education and related Ministries regarding proposed changes to provincial educational policy, legislation or standards that materially affect programs, assessments, teacher certification, graduation requirements, exams, or curriculum offered by FNESC or First Nations Schools. Disseminates information to FNSA and First Nations Schools as require;
  • Develops curriculum and resources as set out in the Jurisdiction and BCTEA;
  • Works to increase enrollment in EFP 10, 11, 12, BCFPS 12, and other Indigenous focused BC courses;
  • Works collaboratively to prepare responses to federal, provincial and other policy, program and legislative initiatives that affect the interests of First Nations students in BC.

What We’re Looking For:

  • Proven experience in a leadership role in educational initiatives;
  • Valid driver’s licence and a satisfactory criminal records check; and
  • An understanding of First Nations education issues.

This position is based at the FNESC office in West Vancouver, or at a home-based office outside of the Lower Mainland, but within the province of British Columbia, if the location is acceptable to FNESC. Occasional travel is required throughout the province of BC.

FNESC requires that all FNESC staff have at least two doses of COVID-19 vaccine for two reasons: First, because FNESC takes its responsibility to create and maintain a healthy workplace very seriously. And, second, because many of our staff attend First Nations communities in-person. Some First Nations have unique requirements and vulnerabilities related to communicable diseases like COVID-19, and FNESC always respects the needs of First Nations.

We thank everyone who applies for their interest in FNESC.  Unfortunately, due to the volume of applications, we are only able to respond to those applicants who are selected for an interview.  We cannot respond to telephone or email inquiries.
