An outstanding school on the island of Turks & Caicos is seeking a secondary English Teacher to join their team for January 2021.
This private school provides education of the highest possible quality to local children as well as those who have relocated in the island. It has grown steadily since its opening in the 90s and its reputation for excellence is well-established. Classes are small, 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.
