Providenciales, Turks & Caicos Islands

Teacher of English

British West Indies Collegiate is a private, co-educational secondary school in Providenciales, Turks & Caicos Islands, whose teaching and learning is based on a UK curriculum. It is a small, intimate, and friendly school (160 on roll) with a strong academic record, and one that encourages children to fulfil their potential, both inside and outside the classroom. Two of our students were recently recognised as Top in the World in Cambridge AS Mathematics and Chemistry.

The school is currently seeking to appoint a new teacher to replace staff that have decided to return to the UK, and to meet the needs of an evolving curriculum partly delivered through digital media. The appointee will take up post on Wednesday 26th August 2020, which is the start of the staff pre-week.

Applicants will be BEd or PGCE (Secondary) qualified subject specialists, experienced teaching to Cambridge IGCSE and A-level syllabi, and comfortable in the role of class tutor. Prospective staff will have a striking extra-curricular background, and be able and willing to contribute to the stimulating enrichment programme offered after school and occasionally at weekends.

While the TCI is an idyllic British Overseas Territory in the Caribbean, only a 90-minute flight from Florida, and whose beaches are often voted best in the world, candidates should be familiar with and accepting of the challenges, as well as the rewards, of island life.

What we offer:

Initial, renewable, two–year contract, includes:

  • Competitive tax-free salary paid in US dollars
  • Annual 10% bonus from end of third year
  • Generous relocation allowance
  • Annual return flight
  • Private medical insurance

How to apply:

Please consult the school website (www.bwic.tc) and e-mail your CV (including photograph), Letter of Application, and completed BWIC Application Form to the Principal, Mrs Sylvie Wigglesworth, at principal@bwic.tc

Closing date 30th March 2020.

The school reserves the right to consider applications as they are received, and may interview candidates prior to this date. Early applications are therefore encouraged.
