(CMR) Workforce Opportunities and Residency Cayman (WORC), wishes to advise that effective October 14, 2019, the Department will no longer be conducting English Language Tests (ELTs).
The ELT is a condition stipulated on work permits of persons who are from non-English speaking countries. Going forward, WORC will accept test results from two global providers: International English Language Test Systems (IELTS) and Test of English for International Communication (TOEIC).
Testing centres for both providers can be found globally. A TOEIC testing centre is also on Island. Please visit https://mbscayman.com/toeic/ for further details.
WORC’s established passing grade is at band A2. This grading is reflective of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) which identifies this grade as a basic user of English.
