According to a TT Newsday article, one hundred teachers from Trinidad and Tobago are being offered the opportunity to work in the US through Participate Learning – a global professional development organisation that invests in early childhood and primary schoolteachers with at least two years of experience in the classroom. It is not clear if teachers from other territories qualify for the positions. The paper writes:
“We’re inviting teachers to come and teach not only math, English, science and social studies, but also the culture of your country. Your traditions, your food, everything,” recruitment co-ordinator of Participate Learning Ronald Ramirez told Newsday in a Zoom interview.
He said interested teachers can apply through the link: https://bit.ly/3ovcxy8 which will be open until March. The process is free and there is no age limit. Once applicants meet the basic requirements, they will go through the interview process to try to get into the programme to teach from K to fifth grade (children ages five to 11) at one of the 450 public schools in North and South Carolina and Virginia for five years.
Teachers will be trained, visas arranged, and have rentals paid for a period of time.
