Welcome to the JBTE

The Joint Board of Teacher Education (JBTE) at Mona is a unique association in which the following are partners in all the decision-making processes involved in the certification of teachers and the development of teacher education and accreditation: The University of the West Indies; the governments of Jamaica, the Bahamas, Belize and Turks and Caicos Islands (through their Ministries of Education); the teachers’ colleges; and the teaching profession.

In accordance with University Ordinance 14.4 Section (e), each Joint Board has the following functions:

  • To consider and recommend or approve the syllabuses of teachers’ colleges
  • To examine and assess the work of students in training
  • To make recommendations on teacher training and allied matters to the appropriate authorities

The work of the Joint Board is administered by a secretariat headed by a senior University administrator. The examinations process is managed by the Institute of Education (IOE) through the secretariat of the JBTE, which is part of the IOE.
