Bridge International Field Quality Inspector Jobs in Kenya


Bridge International Academies partners with governments, donors, and parents to ensure that every child has access to an education that develops her full potential and creates the foundation for prosperity for the country.

In the past 9 years, Bridge has grown from serving 99 children in one community in Kenya, to serving more than 250,000 children every school day in 5 countries.

We are dedicated to supporting teachers, empowering school leaders, and ensuring every child has the learning support needed to master the national syllabus and have the confidence to succeed in a competitive world.

Each of our 5 country teams are supported through expertise and programming from additional offices in Hyderabad, India; Cambridge, MA, USA; and London, UK. We leverage experts, data, and technology in order to support and scale every aspect of quality education delivery.

Bridge managed and supported schools are technology enabled and data driven to ensure accountability in the classroom for both teachers’ performance and children’s learning.

The Bridge model delivers significant learning outcomes at large scale by combining technology and customized learning materials.

At Bridge, we believe innovation and technology can transform learning. Our model – which uses technology to deliver thoroughly researched and carefully designed daily lesson guides to teachers in our academies – is proven to increase learning outcomes for children.

Our mission is to provide our pupils with a life-changing education and we believe that every child should have a right to world-class education regardless of her family’s income.

Core to our approach is the conviction that every child can learn, as long as the school she attends is committed to her development and puts her needs to learn at the forefront of all decisions.

We have seen teachers and children transform and excel in both government and private schools that we support and manage.
