The program

There are two options depending on whether you are already qualified to teach English or if you want to do your TESOL qualification as part of your program.

Thailand Internship Program

Already TESOL qualified?

The internship will give you the opportunity to get your first overseas teaching experience and experience life in Thailand like a local! Teachers work in primary and high schools and some universities for one semester. Interns all arrive on the same day and have a one-week in-country orientation with Thai classes as well as tours and activities. They then go to their placement schools in locations across Thailand (minimum 2 teachers at one placement). Once there, accommodation is provided and ongoing welfare and academic support. Bonus and internship certificate are provided.
