Getting started as an English teacher

A quick overview of TEFL certificates, degrees, work permits and visas

If you didn’t go to university, don’t pretend that you did. You may be able to bluff your way through an interview and produce a certificate upon which the ink has just dried; however, all it takes is one phone call to immigration and you won’t just lose your job, you could lose your freedom.


Does your school have a work permit / visa superhero?

Every teacher would love their school to have a Khun Oat

Foreign teachers need someone who takes away all those red tape headaches? Do you have such a member of staff or is your place of employment generally clueless about immigration / ministry of labor procedures and are teachers left to fight for themselves?
