Real Estate Associate Job Opportunities – Bridge International Academies

Organisation: Bridge
International Academies
Kampala, Uganda
Aikan HR Consultants seeks to
recruit for its valuable client, Bridge International Academies, the world’s largest
chain of primary and pre-primary schools bringing world-class education to the
poorest of the poor, democratizing the right to succeed.
Bridge leverages research,
technology, and data analysis in order to standardize and scale the entire
lifecycle of high-quality education delivery and to drive continuous
improvement across all aspects of operations. 
This includes how academies are built, teachers are selected and
trained, lessons are delivered and monitored for improvement, and more. Bridge
pupils gain an additional .34 standard deviation on core reading skills and an
additional .51 standard deviation on maths compared to their peers in
neighboring schools, based on USAID-designed exams administered by an
independent monitoring and Evaluation Company – this translated into over 250
additional days of learning. Thanks to economies of scale, Bridge is able to
charge just $6 a month per pupil on average with academies reaching operational
sustainability after just one year.
