Description of Role:
Primary duties involve two areas: assisting students and administrative services. Deans must be able to handle issues that may arise between students and college Directors (problems getting exams graded, challenges to grades, etc.). Deans must beta-test and approve all new exams and/or colleges that are added to their institutes, and coordinate with the CDC to get final approval. Once approved, the Dean is responsible for submitting the final versions of the exams to SFA Services for integration into our live curriculum offerings. Deans must also work with their Directors to resolve any reported issues the Director may be having, or inform the proper office of the issue. Additionally, Deans receive the monthly status reports from the Directors within their institutes and use those to generate their monthly institute status report. Assistant Deans assist the Dean with their duties, and need to be willing to serve as Dean on a temporary basis if needed; therefore Assistants should be able to perform all of the above duties if required. As we are enhancing our Moodle operations, Deans will be required to work with out Moodle team and the Directors in their institutes to find the best way to present their exams in the Moodle system and help resolve any issues relating to this. More information relating to the duties of Deans and Assistant Deans can be found in the SAOC Manual.
Microsoft Office or Open Office (or similar, compatible program); previous experience with Moodle not required, but must be willing to learn basic functions. Additionally, good grammar, spelling, and proofreading skills are STRONGLY encouraged.
Deans and Assistant Deans should have previous experience within SFA or SFMCA as an Assistant Director or above; one year preferred, but six months minimum (past staff members who left in good standing are welcome to apply). Similar experience elsewhere in Fleet or in the real world may be considered if there are no candidates with SFA experience. We prefer that candidates serve (or previously served) in the institute for which they are applying, but in certain situations that may be waived.
OTS, STARFLEET Data Protection Policy 101 and 102, all of the courses in the STARFLEET Academy Orientation College (SAOC), and successful test-out for the college for which you are applying. Test-out requirements will vary from college to college, and are explained in the SAOC Manual. (SFDPP 101 and 102 MUST be completed before being considered for this position. Thirty days can be given to complete other outstanding exams if necessary.)
Applications will be accepted for a minimum of 14 days or until filled. We will keep all applications on file for a minimum of 6 months, and consider them for future openings. If you would like to be considered for multiple positions, please state that in your application, and you only need to apply once. If you have any questions about SFA openings, please contact the SFA Commandant at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com for more information.
