Nova Academies Lower Primary School Teachers Jobs at Tatu City Primary School
Lower Primary School (Class 1-3 Teachers)
Nova Academies is looking for superstar Lower Primary School Teachers to fill 2018 vacancies in its Tatu City Primary School whose construction begins in April 2017.
We are seeking dynamic individuals who wants to empower students with a different learning approach using the Kenyan system.
This is an opportunity to help create a transformative school model with the future of Africa’s youth at stake.
Imagine a world in which every young person in Africa attends a school that truly sets them up for success in the 21st century.
A school that demands excellence, helps students learn by doing and exploring rather than by memorizing, equips students with globally competitive science and technology skills, and builds the character and growth mindset that will shape the rest of their lives.
Now imagine that this school is not in one town, in one country, but in every town, in every country. This is what we imagine, and we want you to help make it happen.
About Nova Academies: One year ago we launched a new venture to build the first pan-African network of high-quality, affordable primary and secondary schools.
In 2018 we will be operating 7 schools—four in South Africa and one in Kenya—and gearing up for rapid growth. Our venture is structured as a social enterprise to enable us to attract the investment that will be needed to launch 100 schools and reach tens of thousands of students in the next decade.
