Pioneer and Nova Academies are joining forces to build
a network of high-quality, affordable
Africa. As of January 2016 we will have two schools in South Africa and one in
Kenya, aiming to grow to 100 schools across the continent over the next decade.
We are structured as a for-profit social enterprise to enable us to attract the
investment needed to expand quickly and reach tens of thousands of
Education in Africa has been decades behind the rest of
the world -- what if it leapfrogged several decades ahead?
Imagine a world in which every young person in Africa
attends a school that truly sets them up for success in the 21st century.
Imagine that this school demands excellence, equips students with globally
competitive science and technology skills, helps them learn by creating and
inquiring rather than by memorizing, and builds the character and growth
mindset that turn them into lifelong learners and achievers. This is what
we imagine—and we want you to help make it happen.
We are eagerly looking for rising star educators and
instructional leaders to join our team and help us grow. We’re seeking
candidates who have performed well in rigorous, high-expectations school
settings; who crave constant feedback; who are excited about the prospect of
relocating to South Africa or Kenya; and whose joy is infectious when it comes
to learning and helping others learn. In both Kenya and South Africa we will
have opportunities for people to coach teachers and school leaders, lead
curriculum design, and architect PD for instructional staff.
