St. Joseph's Teachers' College is a Roman Catholic teacher training college in Kingston, Jamaica. It was founded in 1897 by the Franciscan Sisters of Allegany a religious orde r for women in the Roman Catholic Church in Jamaica.

To all our readers, St. Joseph’s Teachers’ College (SJTC) welcomes you to our new website. It is our hope that you will use this medium to learn more about our college and that it will provide you with another career choice with a difference. St. Joseph’s Teachers’ College is a Catholic institution that has been in existence for over 116 years. Its early beginnings are grounded in Christian values based on Franciscan tradition through the life and work of the Franciscan Sisters of Allegany. This background forms the ethos of the college to this day

The college is firmly established
and through its vision, mission, and core values it will continue to be unwavering despite much public discussion about teacher quality and oversupply of teachers in the Jamaican workforce. SJTC remains encouraged even when we are experiencing low intake of students for this academic year. This challenge is not unique to SJTC because another teacher-training institutions are experiencing a similar dilemma
while at the same time, other institutions of learning are having a low student intake for this year because of serious financial challenges.

At SJTC, we are of the view that through challenges of this nature
and otherwise, we will continue to be resilient with strong hope. Since our founding in 1897, we have weathered the “storms”. Now, it is safe to say that standing on the threshold and in moving forward, we will become even stronger, more relevant, and more effective in these times when education institutions are constantly being called upon to provide quality education. Therefore, in my view, quality education must be strongly aligned with quality teachers along with the values that tightly underpin such status.

Each year, SJTC continues to increase and enhance the teaching profession by adding some of Jamaica’s best professionals. In order to achieve such a task, SJTC reviews and renews itself and its deliverables so that we remain current and relevant in responding to the needs of our society and even the needs beyond our shores. When prospective teachers come to SJTC, they come because of what they read about the college, what their parents, relatives, friends, and alumni say about the college, all of which provide clear evidence that the good news is out there among the people. SJTC stands tall among the best.

Gomex Technologies Limited, a Jamaican Company duly registered under the Laws of Jamaica under the Companies Act of 2004, was founded in March 2009 to respond to the need for trained professionals in information security and computer forensics in the Caribbean. To fully realise this objective Gomex signed partnership agreements with top forensics hardware and software companies international. Gomex signed reseller agreements with Guidance Software Inc, AccessData, Logicube, Cellebrite and other top forensics brands. Gomex has since consulted with law enforcement in Jamaica, Curacao, Grenada, Turks and Caicos Islands, and the Cayman Islands. In 2009, Gomex became the first and currently the only Authorised Training Partner (ATP) for Guidance Software makers of the Award Winning EnCase Computer Investigative Software. In 2001, Gomex was presented with a plaque form Guidance Software as the Rising star of 2011 for outstanding performance as a young training entity. In 2011, Gomex trained and certified to international standards 15 officers of the Jamaica Constabulary Force. These officers acquired the skills set necessary to investigate computers and digital devices for evidence, using internationally accepted best practices and to present the evidence in a court of law.

In July 2011, Gomex found it necessary to separate the training business form the consulting business as a way of better organising products and services. Gomex Security Academy (GSA) was established to have a focused objective of provide professional training and certification to Jamaica and the Caribbean. To execute the mandate GSA signed an agreement with CompTIA, the world's most popular and vendor neutral certification and global information technology industry membership organisation. GSA then became a CompTIA Authorised Training partner offering a wide array of training programs for entry level information technology specialists. GSA then signed an agreement with the EC-Council internatio nal to become one of the two EC-Council Authorised Training Partner (ATP) in Jamaica to conduct training programmes in Ethical Hacking and other computer security related programs.

In September 2012, Gomex became a Pearson VUE Authorised Testing Centre to offer proctored exams for international certification bodies such as Cisco, Novell, CompTIA and many others. Within the first year of operation, Gomex proctored more than 120 Certifications exams to Jamaicans. Kryterion then approached Gomex to proctor their High-Stakes Online Secure testing service offering examinations in Communications and other college level proctored exams.

In 2013, with the demand for higher education, Gomex Security Academy (GSA) was renamed as Gomex Institute of Technology (GIT or Gomex Tech). This name change was needed to facilitate the comprehensive training programs and academic training that Gomex is now being positioning to take on. Gomex will continue to establish partnership with internat ional institutions to provide first class training programs to Jamaican and the Caribbean to a wider extent.

In 2011, Gomex trained and certified to international standards 15 officers of the Jamaica Constabulary Force. These officers acquired the skills set necessary to investigate computers and digital devices for evidence, using internationally accepted best practices and to present the evidence in a court of law.

In July 2011, Gomex found it necessary to separate the training business form the consulting business as a way of better organising products and services. Gomex Security Academy (GSA) was established to have a focused objective of provide professional training and certification to Jamaica and the Caribbean. To execute the mandate GSA signed an agreement with CompTIA, the world's most popular and vendor neutral certification and global information technology industry membership organisation. GSA then became a CompTIA Authorised Training partner offering a wide array of training programs for entry level information technology specialists. GSA then signed an agreement with the EC-Council internatio nal to become one of the two EC-Council Authorised Training Partner (ATP) in Jamaica to conduct training programmes in Ethical Hacking and other computer security related programs.

In September 2012, Gomex became a Pearson VUE Authorised Testing Centre to offer proctored exams for international certification bodies such as Cisco, Novell, CompTIA and many others. Within the first year of operation, Gomex proctored more than 120 Certifications exams to Jamaicans. Kryterion then approached Gomex to proctor their High-Stakes Online Secure testing service offering examinations in Communications and other college level proctored exams.

In 2013, with the demand for higher education, Gomex Security Academy (GSA) was renamed as Gomex Institute of Technology (GIT or Gomex Tech). This name change was needed to facilitate the comprehensive training programs and academic training that Gomex is now being positioning to take on. Gomex will continue to establish partnership with internat ional institutions to provide first class training programs to Jamaican and the Caribbean to a wider extent.

Shortwood Teachers’ College, founded in 1885 as part of the package of widespread social, economic and political reforms spearheaded by Sir John Peter Grant who was appointe d Governor of Jamaica after 1865.

In 1880, Thomas Capper, B. A., newly appointed Superintendent of Schools, emphasized the need for more trained women “of quality” to be trained as teachers. He felt that their influence on the minds and manners of a young child could be salutary for the development of the people. He was supported by such prominent persons as Bishop Enos Nutthall, Reverend Mr. Robb and Mr. George Hicks. Together they persuaded the newly appointed Governor, Sir Henry Norman, to make a report on this to the Home Office. Ultimately, approval was given for the establishment of a female Teachers’ College.

Bishop Enos NutthallOn September 28, 1885. The Jamaica Female Training College, with Miss Amy Johnson as its Principal and Miss M. C. Randall as her assistant, opened its door to eighteen s tudents.

The College, fully financed by the government, was first located in lower Barbican but a case of yellow fever at the college during its very first year induced the authorities to remove the college to Camperdown where it remained for one year. In 1887 the government purchased the property part of the Shortwood Estate on which the college now stands. The Institution was removed to this location and was no doubt called Shortwood Teachers’ College after that time.

By 1889 the college began to experience serious financial problems and would have floundered had not the Lamb Report of 1889, with full support of Bishop Nutthall recommended that the college be expanded to make it viable.

Following this recommendation the student body was increased to 50 and an annual grant of 1,200 pounds sterling was given by the government. The government of the college was also entrusted to an Interdenominational Board under the chairmanship of Archbishop Nutthall.

In ad dition the curriculum was expanded to include practical subjects Agriculture Science, and Domestic Training: Gardening, Cookery and Laundry. Additions were also made to the buildings. From this point the institution experienced a period of quiet and steady growth.

The earthquake of 1907 caused considerable damage to the buildings. Luckily, the earthquake came during the holidays. When the college was reopened classes were held in the least damaged parts of the building and in tents. In 1939 the college was devasted by fire.

Throughout the years the College has offered programmes which prepare students to teach in the Early Childhood, Primary or Secondary level education. In August 2000 the Primary programme was discontinued. Shortwood is the only teachers’ college that trains teachers of French and Spanish. In August 2001, male students were accepted. Classes in Information Technology are offered to all Year groups, and all students are given access to the internet.
The College has gone beyond offering a three-year diploma in teaching. The College, in collaboration with the University of the West Indies, and with the support of the Ministry of Education, Youth and Culture now offer a Bachelor’s degree programs in Early Childhood Education. August 2000 saw the start of a Master’s degree programme in Early Childhood Education, offered jointly by the College and the University of South Florida. The College maintains a high standard of academic performance and discipline.

The CMI is a dynamic ISO 9001:2008 certified institution and the Regions Centre of Excellence for tertiary maritime, logistics, engineering training, research and consultancy. It is a corporate body established under the Jamaica Maritime Institute’s (JMI) Act of 1992 and operates under the Ministry of Transport, Works and Housing. The institution is proactive in identifying the needs of the market (locally, regionally and internationally) and seeks to expand its programme offerings in “oepari pasu with the expansion of market demand.

The history and growth of the Institution over the years demonstrate an intimate connection with the needs of the international shipping industry. From just two programmes at its inauguration in 1980 and 30 students, the Institute has grown to become the tertiary centre of excellence in the region, offering over 16 programmes including Masters and Bachelor Degrees and a multiplicity of demand driven customized programmes.

In recognition of t he diversity of the technical and academic competencies within the Institute and in the interest of good governance and accountability, the CMI is organised into three Schools Marine and Professional studies, Academics and Advanced Skills.

The Marine and Professional School focuses on the core seafarers Standard of Training Certification and Watch Keeping Convention (STCW 95), IMO courses leading up to the level of captain, chief engineer and chief mate. The Academic School manages the Associate Degrees, Diplomas, Bachelors and Masters Degrees and spearheads general research based activities. The School of Advanced Skills concentrates on hands on competency based training to meet the needs of the growing shipping and logistics sectors including, alternative energy, engineering projects, business development, entrepreneurship and the Career Advancement Programme (CAP).

In an effort to ensure the highest standards of education and training within the three Schools, the CMI has adopted relevant quality assurance measures. The University Council of Jamaica (UCJ) provides the quality framework for the entire programme offerings of the School of Academic Studies. The offerings of the Marine and Professional Studies School are authorised by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO). With a view to ensuring quality standards of training in the Advanced Studies School, National Council on Technical and Vocational Education and Training (NCTVET) accreditation status has been attained by the Institute. The accreditation of these programmes is one bench mark of excellence that the Institute upholds.

The foremost aim of the CMI is to alleviate local unemployment and exploit the world wide acute shortage of seafarers. Indeed the Maritime Industry Analyst, Drewry Shipping Consultants have estimated a worldwide shortage of 34,000 qualified officers, against a total requirement of 498,000. Moreover, based on Drewry’s fleet growth projections and the assumpti on that officer supply will only increase at the current rate, the report predicts that by 2012, the officer shortfall will have grown to 83,000. It is within this context that the continuity of education and training for seafarers up to the management level at the CMI is of utmost importance.

The potential for growth is tremendous in this dynamic industry, especially in the area of energy and in particular, its conservation. CMI has embarked on a number of energy based projects which are managed and executed through the Institute’s Renewable Energy and Productivity Centre under the School of Advanced Skills. These projects include, but are not limited to the assembly, installation and distribution of alternative energy equipment and water purification. They facilitate training, avenues of employment, entrepreneurship, certification, innovation, safety, discipline and environmental protection - tenets which are highly promoted by the Institute.
