In order to teach as a Substitute Teacher at a primary or secondary school in Trinidad and Tobago, a person must first create an account through the Substitute Teacher On-line Management System. Once an account is created, the person can then apply for employment as a primary or secondary-level Substitute Teacher for any Primary or Secondary school. The qualification (e.g., Certificate, Diploma, Associates Degree, Bachelor's, or Master's,) determines the level at which the Substitute Teacher will be assessed to teach.
