Nova Pioneer is looking for superstar Housekeepers for
our Tatu City Campus. This is an opportunity to be a part of an innovative
network of schools that is developing generations of innovators and leaders who
shape the African Century.
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, inquiry-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. Learn more about our learning approach here. Nova Pioneer
currently has 10 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. To learn more visit www.novapioneer.com.
