Teachers need to force agencies to offer better wages and force ajarn to stop accepting insulting job ads.
Postbox letter from Teacher Andries
Why is it when the school does not pay the agency on time the teacher does not get his salary as per contract?
Postbox letter from Mr T
I'm finding out that almost everything in Thailand's TEFL industry is a big fat lie.
Postbox letter from Ajarn Andrew
Always make sure a contract is signed if you plan on working with an agency.
Some suggestions on where Filipinos might find teaching work
Each agency has different sets of procedures and requirements. Just prepare all your credentials when you apply, including your ID pictures. Be ready with some teaching materials too because a number of agencies require 5-10 minute teaching demonstration.
Gumban once thought, “Is it love for travel or is it mere coincidence that I am here in Thailand as a teacher? “Is it force of circumstance or matter of choice?” “What has really brought me here?”
Postbox letter from Micky Davenport
I don't want to go through those traumatic experiences again, of being discriminated against and collaborating with agencies and somehow taking part in fooling these lovely Thai people.
Unfortunately, The Thailand Educators Network did not meet in May
Fingers crossed, our TEN events scheduled for June and July should go ahead as planned.
Postbox letter from MP
In March I was offered a job through a teacher placement agency. They offered a great package which included free accommodation, a great placement, a decent salary and 50% insurance.
Dodging the TEFL scammers
There will always be people like Tony, or worse, in this industry. Just as there will always be hordes of backpacking sex-tourists posing as English teachers. This industry, like any other, is obsessed with money and power.
