Teaching opportunities in Thailand (and sometimes other countries in Asia)

It could be a very slow May for TEFL vacancies as Co-vid cases continue to rise (particularly in Bangkok) and the start of the new school term has now been put back to June 1st. Perhaps many schools are cautious about hiring teachers and committing to contracts with so much uncertainty around? View all the current teaching positions on the Ajarn jobs page.

"Thailand is not for raising a family"

Our latest great escape survey is all about Phillip, who returned to his native Ireland in late 2000 after six years as a teacher in Thailand. Although he had many reasons for going home, his daughter's welfare was the primary concern.


— Do you have a teaching position for any of these teachers?

Do you have a teaching position for any of these teachers?

We are back again with our 'quick chat with a teacher' feature, where teachers who are actively looking for work, answer a few questions and tell us a little bit about themselves. 

If you want to be featured in a 'quick chat with a teacher' please make sure you have experience working in Thailand and you are currently here in the country. Oh, and please make sure the photo is large and clear. Submit your chat.
