ThaiJobs in a nutshell…
ThaiJobs is an organisation that specialises in sending English Teachers out to Thailand. With teams based in the UK and Thailand, we have a wealth of knowledge and support to provide all applicants with. Not only does ThaiJobs find safe, friendly and extremely well paid teaching placements, we also provide all applicants with the full training they will need to start teaching (no matter what their previous experience). Our teachers can choose between our two internationally accredited TEFL (Teach English as a Foreign Language) /TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) courses- our 120 hour online course, or our on location course in 3 locations throughout Thailand. We have courses to suit each individuals preferred method of learning, and no matter what course they choose, all applicants have a further 4/5 day Orientation and Teaching Seminar once in Thailand, to give them that extra boost of confidence.
ThaiJobs provides full support to your son/daughter throughout the whole process, from submitting their application to starting in their new school, there will always be someone to help. All applicants are met at the airport and taken to approved accommodation for their first 2 nights in Thailand. During these two days we ensure all applicants meet other teachers, get all the information they need and get fully settled in and prepared for their adventure ahead!
Well…aside from the fact your son/daughter is going to have the adventure of a lifetime, meeting new friends for life and living in one of the most beautiful countries in the world, there are countless reasons to get your TEFL qualification and teach in Thailand. During this experience our teachers get to see Thailand the real way, fully immersing themselves in this rich and infectious culture, which is bound to leave them a more rounded individual. The skills you learn from teaching others are truly endless, your confidence increases ten fold, your patience and ability to explain things to others increases and your organisation and initiative skills develop a significant amount. As a result of all of the above, becoming a TEFL/TESOL teacher is an amazing addition to any CV and is sure to make you stand out from the crowd, no matter what career path you are looking to take.
ThaiJobs Fees and Refunds
All payments are non-refundable if a cancellation is made by the applicant. However, if the cancellation is a result of serious unforeseen circumstances, such as a loss within the family, the team will look into partially refunding the applicant. Additionally if a placement is not found a refund will be issued minus the stage one fee (unless a placement has been offered and declined through no fault of ThaiJobs or that at any stage the applicant has been untruthful with us). Any applicant who has not provided all the necessary documentation in time will not be offered a refund as we cannot process that person without a complete application. For more information on our refunds policy, please read our Terms and Conditions.
Depending on the programme your son/daughter is accepted on to their visa process will vary. On all of our programmes applicants are offered full visa support, it is just that some applicants will enter the country on a 60 day Tourist Visa and then convert it to a Non-Immigrant B visa, whilst others will enter the country on the Education Visa. Either way, ThaiJobs will help all applicants through this often confusing process, so there is nothing to worry about.
Travel to and from Thailand
Once an applicant has been confirmed on the programme and we have received their deposit to secure their place, we will put them in touch with our lovely flight partners. Our flight partners have been in this business for many years and our experts at finding the right flights at the right prices to suit our applicants. If any of our teachers is unsure as to when they want to come home, this is not at all a problem as our flight partners offer amazing flexi flight deals as well.
