About Nova Pioneer

  • 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.

    Our team culture is designed to reinforce our vision:

  • We model the growth mindset we want our students to embody: you are challenged every day and, as a result, you grow more than at any other point in your life.

  • We bring infectious energy, enthusiasm and fun to everything we do because joy fuels the hardest work and learning.

  • “Novaneers” work harder and work longer hours than at most schools but as a result, the growth they experience is extraordinary.

  • We offer consistent and ongoing professional development and provide clear career pathways that ensure that our people are always achieving their personal and professional best.

  • Nova Pioneer has a highly energetic, entrepreneurial environment where our people get to bring their creative and innovative ideas to life.

  • We look for people who are flexible and who are able to adapt and respond quickly to adversity with a positive, can-do attitude (there are no problems, only solutions!).

  • We welcome challenges and roll with the punches because it makes us, and our students, better.

  • There is no problem too big for us! We work hard but we also have a lot of fun together.

  • We bring infectious energy and enthusiasm to everything we do because joy fuels the hardest work and learning. Read more about our culture principles here.
