    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.

    Job description

    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.

    • How can we establish technology systems that enable us to successfully launch and run 100 schools in the next decade across sub-Saharan Africa?
    • What are best practices in large school networks and how can technology be used to help streamline processes, gain cost efficiencies and improve productivity?
    • What are the biggest potential stumbling blocks - how do we anticipate those and get ahead of the curve?

    We are seeking passionate, driven individuals who will help us answer these questions, design solutions, and make substantive contributions the the organization as we scale. We are looking for people who have the desire to take on a new challenge in an entrepreneurial context and to do life-changing work with incredible people.
