The Braeburn Group of International Schools is a group of 9 co-educational international schools offering British/International curricula in Kenya and Tanzania. With a community of nearly 100 different nationalities and nearly as many different cultures, we have occasional opportunities for TEFL qualified teachers. Working in a diverse multicultural environment offers the opportunity to broaden knowledge and experience. Candidates will be expected to commit themselves fully to the curricular and co-curricular aspects of the schools. All Braeburn Schools follow the National Curriculum of England and Wales. We prepare students for IGCSEs, A-Levels, IBDP and IBCP & BTEC Level 3 Diploma. Our schools are located in Nairobi, Mombasa, Kisumu, Nanyuki, Dar-es-Salaam and Arusha.


We belong to both the Kenyan and Tanzanian international schools associations, which allows for further opportunities for training and the sharing of good practice. We are committed to attracting, developing and retaining the very best teachers through fostering a friendly, caring and supportive environment.

Our schools are located in international hubs, with unparallelled opportunities for sport, socialising and travel. White sand beaches, game parks, nature reserves and Africa’s highest peak, Kilimanjaro are all close at hand.

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.

Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching.


In this section, I learned how best to prompt students to participate in the classroom. Additionally, there should be different activities and exercises when thinking about either fluency or accuracy. Both are equally important and should be given the same amount of time but should be presented at different stages of the course. Creative writing and games are also extremely important.In my experience with foreign languages, speaking was the easiest since you didn't have to know a lot about grammar and punctuation. Most times we memorized phrases from dialogues more difficult . On the other hand, writing was more difficult since accuracy in grammar,spelling, and punctuation was required. This unit didn't focus on the differences in mastering both productive skills.
