Micro Schools

The iBhodi Trust is a social impact endeavour which has been established to create a blueprint that enables future-fit secondary education at scale. Our core aim is to develop and demonstrate a new model of education which leverages pedagogical reconfiguration and the effective, intentional use of key learning technologies to deliver world-class education at the same cost per learner that the SA government at large spends per learner, per year, thereby becoming a catalyst for socio-economic mobility across the country.

Our Values

We don’t see values as mantras written on walls or housed in documents, only to be referred to on an annual basis. Our values represent who we are. They are the shared collective principles that we use to engage with one another and, ultimately, to achieve our goals. Our values live in our daily conversations, in our meetings and in our work. They represent the points of coaching, and the hard lines in the sand.

If these values resonate with you, we encourage you to apply for our vacancies.

  • Work as a pilgrimage of self discovery
  • We are obsessed about impact at scale
  • We interrogate every cent in order to pass on value to our students

  • We change constantly in order to innovate

  • We assume best intent
