Management in TESOL Assignments
This paper examines the organisation of a small language school, in particular with regard to a newly established post of coordinator. Interviews were conducted with principle stakeholders with different perspectives – the school director, an experienced coordinator and a teacher working with the new coordinator on the subject of coordination in the school. These interviews were then analysed in order to develop the new coordinator role. A consideration of important points of the role of the academic manager is then related to the school. These points are then tied together to produce a job description for the new post. Appraisal of the new post, and of the whole school is then looked at, followed by a discussion of how to manage the changes suggested. The paper concludes by looking at the benefits for the organisation of the new post.
