WHY GET TEFL COURSE TRAINING?
The TEFL for Target Learner Groups Course: To Start a New Career Teaching ESL and EFL, you need TEFL Course Training!
Are you getting a bit bored with life in the West? Would you like to do something useful with your life which, at the same time, will benefit thousands of others? If so, we would like to encourage you to start a new life teaching English in the "Land of Smiles" (or elsewhere, in a place of your choice) as a fully qualified English teacher in demand by quality schools that pay good salaries and benefits!
If this appeals to you, there is no better time to start than now, even if you feel that English may not have been your best subject in school. After completing our course, you will be in demand for teaching jobs available both in Thailand and around the world – hundreds of them, thousands of them, tens of thousands of jobs needing qualified teachers to fill them! If you have the slightest doubt about this, just check out what you find when you click on the following links. (WARNING! It may take you a full week, 24/7, just to view all the different jobs available across the world right now; and, by the time you finish, many of these will have been taken and thousands more become available!) Have a look:
If you remain and teach in Thailand, and secure a full-time teaching position, you may also be able to get a teacher's license and work permit (if you hold a university degree, of course) or an education visa, to avoid wasting both time and money going on visa runs.
Finally, if you are already teaching, but experiencing limited opportunities and income and feeling you could be doing a lot better job at teaching, make yourself indispensable! The truth is that just being an English native speaker is not enough to be an effective EFL teacher. And if you are the kind of person who, no matter what kind of work you are doing, always likes to do it to the very peak of his/her ability, our TEFL for Target Learner Groups course is for you. There are not enough trained teachers to meet the demands of quality schools. The whole world will open up to you if you become one! (It will also close up on you, if you don't, as more and more these days, it's becoming nearly impossible in Thailand (or anywhere else) to get a well-paid English teaching position with a quality school which cares about both its students and its teachers, unless you have obtained a formal TEFL qualification such as the one we provide first.
Certainly, with our accredited and numbered TEFL certificate, you can be sure of getting a teaching offer from a quality school offering security and good pay, our own school included; and getting a teacher's license and work permit for Thailand is also made easier, once you have selected a school to work for.
Once you start your career, you can expect to be earning between 30,000 to 50,000 baht a month in Bangkok, perhaps a bit less in the provinces where it costs less to live anyway.
Whether you teach here in Thailand or abroad, you can be assured that, with the Certificate from our course, you will be able to obtain attractive job offers from excellent quality schools, and will not need to take the first (less attractive and unstable) job offer that comes your way. So, should you leave Thailand to teach elsewhere, you are virtually certain to obtain good work there. As for our school, we'd like to keep you teaching for us if we can, as we normally need between 70 and 90 teachers. However, we cannot hire everyone we train, and numerous quality schools approach us regularly expressing their admiration for our training course and requesting that our graduates be sent to them for hiring interviews. So your job opportunities are excellent in Thailand, whether you teach for our own school or not, or whether they are at one of the schools we just referred to or not.
