In reply to previous posts about unqualified teachers and the great and plentiful jobs that are supposedly available - I have to disagree. When I first came to Bangkok in 2009, I had a BA (Hons) English degree and a 120-hour TEFL certificate I went to live in Bangkok and trained on a teaching English to young learners course. My experience is that there are very few jobs available that ask for unqualified teachers. Where do you look for these 'unqualified teacher wanted' job ads? The majority of the jobs I apply for are from ajarn.com and they specifically ask for qualified teachers. From 2009-2011 I lived in Bangkok and the money I was offered wasn't anything to write home about, apart from one international school in Bang Kruai which offered fantastic rates per hour for part-time work on a Saturday. I decided to go back to the UK to study for the PGCE (postgraduate certificate in education) from 2011 to 2012. I am now back in Bangkok with two great paying jobs - both full-time and part-time.
