Who We Are
Bridge 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.
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 project or country teams are supported through expertise and programming from additional offices around the world, combining world-leading expertise in core design areas with locally resident leadership and execution.
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.
We are a solutions-driven, implementation-focused organization, using design principles to work in varied and often highly constrained contexts to ensure learning outcomes and positive development for children.
Working in regional and national scales is important to us, as empowering entire generations of children with core knowledge, skills, and confidence is what builds the foundation for a peaceful and prosperous future for us all.
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.
We invite you to join this incredible endeavor that is having world-changing impact across multiple continents. You will join a team of dedicated change-makers committed to ensuring that each decision we make keeps a child’s experience of learning as its guiding principle.
The objective of the Academics group is to drive student achievement. To do so, we must know what is happening minute-by-minute for the typical child.
The student’s daily experience, and thus the path to achievement, emerges from their relationship with the teachers and the content that is delivered in the classroom.
Our team is collaboratively organised around these levers. We develop rigorous content pitched at the right level for students to be delivered by a teacher who is prepared to succeed in the classroom.
our Learning Innovation department looks at cutting-edge research to generate breakthrough learning gains. Underpinning all of this is the work of the independent Measurement and Evaluation group, which provides Academics with an empirical orientation toward improving that daily experience and, in turn, driving achievement.
The Learning Innovation Department is responsible for driving improvement in instructional design and academics more broadly.
The Learning Innovation team collects qualitative and quantitative data daily in order to guide the creation and development of learning materials.
In addition, the Learning Innovation Department uses randomised A / B testing to test new and innovative approaches to instructional design using rigorous research methodology and study design.
About the Role
As a Learning Innovation Officer in the academics group you will be responsible for guiding the improvement of lessons and learning materials by providing objective, daily feedback on teacher experience and pupil outcomes.
As a Learning Innovation Officer, you are the "eyes and ears" of the Academic Team - a mix of experts at headquarters creating teacher training, books, and lessons.
In addition, the role supports the design, execution, and evaluation of Learning Lab initiatives. You will be in schools each day observing lessons, collecting data, interviewing school staff, and providing ongoing feedback to the Instructional Design team.
Our lessons and pupil achievement depend heavily on ongoing feedback from you.
The Learning Innovation Department is hyper-focused on ensuring that lessons are driven by clear objectives, that teachers are fully supported, and that pupils are prepared for academic success.
Being a part of this team means believing that our pupils' performance can always be improved through better- lessons. It also means being courageous enough to provide challenging feedback and holding all stakeholders accountable for educational excellence.
What You Will Do
That feedback will help the team to learn about strengths and weaknesses of the lessons themselves, so they can make changes.
For example, perhaps one school leader has organized a well-attended revision session that happens early each morning, and parents really like it.
What You Should Have
Sometimes they will be nervous that if they share problems with you, it could cause trouble, so you need to be reassuring.
You can multi-task dozens of such projects at once and never lose sight of the details. Likely, you have some experience in a start-up or other rapid-growth company.
You need to be flexible and ready to get everything done effectively, quickly, and affordably with the materials at hand.
You would never shrink back from shaking a parent’s hand or picking up a crying child, no matter what the person was wearing or looked like.
Every decision you make considers their benefit, experience, and value.
You know you only get better tomorrow when others point out where you’ve missed things or failed today.
You wonder, and see the world as wonderful even when you want to change a part of it that is unjust.
