The Cayman Islands Department of Immigration is accepting scores from Educational Testing Service’s (ETS) TOEIC(R) tests to measure the English-language proficiency of persons from around the world wishing to work or settle in the Cayman Islands.

The Cayman Islands Department of Immigration expects to receive approximately 1,000 applicants annually who will take the TOEIC(R) Listening and Reading test and the TOEIC(R) Speaking and Writing tests to demonstrate their English-language skills. Scores will apply to workers from all sectors and are not based on a tier system or type of work.

“We are encouraged by the Cayman Islands’ use of fair and valid assessments to advance quality and equity in education,” Mohammad Kousha, ETS Executive Director-Global said. “TOEIC assessments offer job seekers a competitive advantage and an internationally recognized credential to distinguish them from other candidates.”

The Cayman Islands acceptance of TOEIC follows the U.K. Border Agency’s announcement earlier this year that persons from around the world wishing to work or settle in the United Kingdom may use the TOEIC test to demonstrate their English proficiency for all visas under the United Kingdom’s points-based system.

The TOEIC tests are the most widely accepted English-language assessments in the workplace environment. With more than six million tests administered last year, the TOEIC tests are the global standard for assessing workplace English-language communication skills for companies, institutions and government agencies around the world. The TOEIC tests currently are used by more than 10,000 organizations in 120 countries worldwide.
