Trinidad and Tobago Education


The schooling is compulsory between 6 and 13 years and the compulsory school is free of charge. The education system has three levels. First comes a 7-year primary school, which is mainly state but has a significant private element. Then follows a secondary school with two main types: a 3- plus 2-year-old and a 5- or 7-year-old. The selection for this is done through the exam at the age of 11-12. Higher education is provided at some teacher training institutes as well as a branch of the University of the West Indies. Admission to the latter takes place after completing sixth form, the last two years of the 7-year secondary school. The school bears the mark of the British colonial past. Increased admission to technical and medical education as well as schooling for anyone up to 18 years is prioritized.
