The Turks and Caicos Islands Community College Salaries
The Turks and Caicos Islands Community College invites proposals from interested individuals, firms or companies for a Consultancy Undertaking to review its policies.
In 1994, the Turks and Caicos Islands Community College (TCICC) was established by Ordinance 25 (1994), with a vision to provide quality education for all sectors of the Turks and Caicos Islands community. This being its twenty-fifth (25) year of existence, the institution continues in its thrust to equip individuals with the knowledge, skills and dispositions that would enable them to access existing and emerging opportunities, prudently exercise their civil responsibilities, enhance their social and cultural lives and become productive citizens. The mission, therefore, encompasses, inter alia, post-secondary and continuing education for the school leaving and adult population; it facilitates the promotion of personal and professional development, and the economic growth and development of the Turks and Caicos Islands.
TCICC has two campuses, one each located on Grand Turk and Providenciales. The College offers a myriad of programmes, that include: Short/Interest courses; one semester courses; Upgrade courses; Full time programmes of two to three semesters culminating in Certificates, Advanced, Certificates, Associate and Bachelor Degrees.
Similar to other institutions in the region, and critical to the effective delivery of programme offerings, the Turks and Caicos Islands Community College relies upon the local and overseas recruitment of highly qualified and experienced faculty and staff.
The Current Faculty and Staff Guidelines (Policies) have been in operation since 2003. Although many of the policies are relevant, the dynamic nature of education requires regular updating.
Notwithstanding that, the TCICC continues in its mission to fulfil its objective of facilitating organizational development, through the strengthening and promotion of employee recruitment and retention strategies. In this context, the policy review is critical and is intended to ensure that TCICC is in keeping with regional and international standards in education and human development. With this in mind, the TCICC seeks to engage a consultant/consultants to review and upgrade its policies in keeping with current trends and expectations of education.
