Description About Bridge International Academies

Bridge International Academies is a startup revolutionizing education across Africa with a truly unique business model and instructional program. The company has launched a large-scale, franchise-like network of ultra low-cost, for-profit private primary schools in Kenya, and will expand across Africa.

Our schools profitably deliver high-quality education for less than $4 per child per month. Local school managers are able to operate their school businesses profitably, while creating a highly successful business at the central level. This ensures that the school is not dependent on the vagaries of donor funding, but will rather continue to serve the communities as long as parents value the educational service we provide.

To ensure the delivery of high quality education, Bridge International writes its own curriculum using Direct Instruction methodology. We also train and support our own teachers.

We have already launched the first 12 schools in our network in the slums of Nairobi with tremendous success, and plan to rapidly scale the company to serve more than 1 million families in Africa.

About this job

Bridge International has developed Version 1.0 of an extremely detailed and rigorous instructional approach to enable a broad universe of teachers from local slum neighborhoods to be extremely effective in the classroom, overseen and managed by a school manager implementing a specialized support and oversight system, monitored and audited by a field-based operations team from headquarters.

Critical elements of the Bridge International instructional approach include:
  • a Direct Instruction or scripted curriculum (word for word, action-by-action scripts for every lesson in the classroom) based on the national syllabus
  • a continuous assessment program integrated with the curriculum, using specialized assessment recording forms and easy to follow rules for when teachers should continue on to new material or remediate on previous lessons
  • an integrated tutoring and enrichment program to ensure that students don’t fall behind, and those who are ahead of the curve are constantly engaged.
Due to the standardization and systematizing, our overall operational approach is most similar to that of other well-run, large-scale chains of service businesses, such as those in retail and food services. The critical difference being that our service is world-class quality but ultra-affordable primary education.

We are seeking to hire Curriculum Specialists- for multiple positions of Senior Curriculum Specialists, Curriculum Specialists and Associate Curriculum Specialists-to create the curriculum elements of our “School in a Box” model.
