Imagine a world in which every young person across Africa attends a school that truly sets them up for success in the 21st century. A school that cares about individual students and allows them to explore the world around them. A school that focuses more on developing skills than on memorizing content. At Nova Pioneer, we have done more than just imagine this future—we are bringing it to life.
Nova Pioneer is a pan-African, independent network of schools offering high quality, accessible education from pre-primary through secondary school. Nova Pioneer uses a unique, enquiry-based learning approach that encourages students to ask “why” instead of telling them the “what”. It allows them to form their own thinking through exploration, investigation and collaboration. Nova Pioneer currently has 6 schools in South Africa and Kenya with a vision to launch 100 schools and reach tens of thousands of students across the African continent in the next decade.
Nova Pioneer seeks innovative, passionate and driven professionals who want to spend 3-6 months in Nairobi or Johannesburg solving complex challenges to help a young social enterprise expand world-class education across Africa.
As a Global Innovation Fellow for Nova Pioneer's growing Technology team, you will support our Global Technology Lead in determining how we can establish technology systems that will enable us to successfully launch and run 100 schools in the next decade across sub-Saharan Africa. Example projects that you might be involved in include the development of a parent portal, an employee intranet, or a student information system.
