Teaching is one of the few vocations in the world that requires a lot more than just academic qualifications; it is a meaningful journey that needs the love and patience to nurture. At Busy Bees (formerly known as Knowledge Universe Singapore), we believe in the power of education to build human potential and positively transform lives. Through our employee wellness, training and recognition programmes, we create opportunities for our teachers to shine from inside out each working day.

We have opportunities in teaching, facilitating, lecturing and developing curriculum in the Busy Bees group of early childhood centres, schools and colleges in Asia and abroad. Be part of our success; join our movement and advance your career.
