Working at NVS

"As a slightly late arrival, I was very impressed with the warm welcome that I received from other staff members, and I’ve found that people are always very willing to answer my questions about school or living in Sudan. My classroom has great resources and my teaching partner and our assistants have been very supportive, which made it easy for me integrate quickly into the school."

Andjelka Markovic, Canada, Science Teacher

"I have been at NVS for three years now (since 2013) and one reason is the quality of the school programme overall. Everyone works very hard to provide a top quality educational environment for the students as well as a comfortable living experience for staff at NVS. I would be hard pressed to find issues or problems that are not being dealt with in one way or another. I would agree that no school is perfect but people here really do care about the needs and concerns of each other on all levels of life here."

Vanessa Carruthers, USA, 3rd Grade Teacher

"The teachers are provided with nice spacious apartments. Sudanese people are very kind and dignified. Very often they help us in various contexts. I have received help from a countless number of strangers when driving around Khartoum."

Olen King, USA, English Teacher

"The flats are spacious, clean and well furnished. There are electrical appliances available and each room has an AC/ and fan installed. The building is kept clean and any maintenance work is carried out swiftly."

Scott Thomas, USA, Math Teacher

"I have worked at NVS for 4 months and I can assiduously say that it has been the best experience for me and my family. The members of staff are extremely kind, approachable and helpful. The students are well behaved, a pleasure to teach, full of energy and a zest for knowledge. NVS offer a variety of extra – curricular activities ranging from sports, field trips to academic tutoring programs. This is only possible because we have staff who are totally committed to their work, are well structured and managed, and know exactly how to maximize student learning, whether it is inside or outside the classroom. NVS Management Team have developed and created a solid infrastructure which allows staff and students to teach and learn in a comfortable, friendly, safe and healthy environment."
