The Braeburn Group of International Schools is committed to attracting, developing and retaining the very best teachers. The majority of our schools are CIS (Council of International Schools) accredited and IAPS (Independent Association of Prep Schools) and COBIS (Council of Overseas British International Schools) members.
We maintain a high teacher retention (for the international market) by focusing on three key areas, the teaching environment, supporting the professional development of our teachers and making sure our teachers are enjoying their time inside and outside the classroom.
English is the language of instruction, we have small class sizes, motivated students and high standards. Our vision is to develop confident individuals, responsible citizens and learners enjoying success.
We have a friendly, caring and supportive environment, with excellent support staff and facilities; empowering our teachers to in turn create an exceptional learning environment for the students. With a community of nearly 100 different nationalities and cultures, we are proud to call ourselves international in every sense, as working in a diverse multicultural environment offers the opportunity to broaden knowledge and experience.
Supporting our teachers
We offer a comprehensive professional development programme, with many local and international providers. We strive to identify potential in our staff and offer the appropriate training including both InSeT and leadership programmes, and back this up by actively promoting staff within the group. We also have links to a number of universities, both local and overseas; we are the local provider of the International Post Graduate Certificate of Educational (PGCEi) through the University of Nottingham.
We belong to both the Kenyan and Tanzanian international schools associations, which allows for further opportunities for training and the sharing of good practice.
Outside the classroom
Our schools are located in international hubs. The opportunities for sport, socialising and travel are extensive, with white sandy beaches, game parks and Africa’s highest mountains all within easy reach.
