General Information

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 order 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
