Postbox letter from Petch
I find it strange that some things aren't stated about working as a teacher in Thailand.
What kind of employee benefits are available to teachers in the country?
Every employee working in Thailand will get social security, and some employers will apply for it on your behalf. You must pay 5% of your monthly salary, up to a maximum of THB ฿750, which will be taken directly from your paycheck.
Postbox letter from Phetpeter
I know times are hard and the lack of teachers may cause suffering for some schools, but the number of so-called agencies offering teachers' work seems to be more than there are teachers
When all the other teachers have a bigger package than you!
I'm a TEFLer in a PGCE world. I'm very low down the hierarchy and I know it. I get it and I understand it, but it is not just the wages that are dissimilar.
18 points to consider carefully when choosing a school
From unpaid mid-term breaks to having to pay for white-board markers. What are the things that turn teachers off the idea of working for a particular Thai school - and are they justified?
A variety of flavours
In my few years in Thailand, I've both applied to and interviewed with a number of different schools, so I thought it may help those new to the profession to clarify a few points, along with what general qualifications you need to even bother applying.
