This private international secondary school gives the provision of education of the highest possible quality for the children of Turks and Caicos as well as those who come to reside in the Islands. To apply for this position please take the following requirements into consideration;  

  • Teachers must be fully-qualified in their teachable subject  
  • Teachers  MUST be able to teach English Language and Literature in English at Cambridge IGCSE level, and English Language at AS/A-Level  - This is a necessity  
  • Teachers must have 3-5 years Post-Graduate Teaching experience in their teachable subject

  • Teachers must commit to an August start and be available for a 2-year contract

The school has grown steadily since its opening in 1993 and its reputation for excellence is well-established. 60-70% of the students at the Collegiate are Turks & Caicos Islanders. Classes are small, as one would expect in a private school, with numbers in each ranging from 12 to a maximum of 24 students (for Years 7 to 11). The school follows a British-based curriculum, leading towards International GCSE and Advanced Level (AS and A2) awards offered by Cambridge International Examinations (CIE).  The school enjoys a well-appointed campus, and all classrooms have air-conditioning units. There are separate laboratories for Biology, Chemistry, and Physics, a well-equipped Art studio, a spacious IT suite, and the largest library on the Island. Brayton Hall, a state-of-the-art assembly-hall/auditorium houses additional classrooms, as well as Music and Drama areas.

Expats can expect to see miles of white sandy beaches leading into a warm, turquoise sea. There is swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, sailing, and kiteboarding, these are extremely popular activities. A car is a necessity for life on the island, as there is no public transport and taxis can be expensive if not pre-booked for service. Water is provided either by mains supply, in which case it is desalinated or from private water cisterns which rely on rainwater. Shopping on the Island is limited and most people take the opportunity to head to Miami to buy home goods and clothing. There is a customs duty exemption of US$400 for residents of the Islands. Getting to Miami can be relatively expensive, and costs between US$400 and US$800, depending on the season. The native people of the Turks and Caicos Islands are friendly and respond to a good sense of humour. Life on Providenciales is an incredible experience for those with an open mind, a sense of humour, and an eagerness for new experiences and challenges.
