  1. DAEFLE or FLE to teach in Thailand ?

    You need a university degree to work legally in OBEC schools (K12).
  2. School Slow on Teaching License

    In another thread this was reported. Yes, you need to hold a university degree to enrol. It's a requirement of the course provider. Besides this, it's a requirement of the TCT for the teacher license.
  3. School Slow on Teaching License

    Yup. The Professional Knowledge Tests are not offered anymore. I think the last one was in 2012 and yes, the current rules state that you can't get more than 6 years in total of temporary teaching permits. Whether that equates to 3 temporary teaching permits is not clear. http://site.ksp.or.th/about.php?site=license&SiteMenuID=221
  4. School Slow on Teaching License

    I live and work upcountry. It was in 2006 when my school asked me to get a police clearance check from my home country. Applied to all foreign teachers there. In October 2007 I was required to attend a Thai Language, Culture and Ethics course in Bangkok. At the course I met many foreign teachers from other schools in town. Guess it was a provincial order. At the course I became aware of the Professional Knowledge Tests to get the teacher license. In May 2008, Immigration refused me an extension. I was given several documents (in Thai) that showed that a waiver or provisional teaching permit was required. Went with a Thai colleague to the TCT and got myself my first provisional teaching permit and subsequently my extension of stay. I sat the tests several times and finally passed them all and received my TCT teacher license in 2011. I renewed it in 2016.

    By law in June 2006. Got gradually enforced in 2007/ 2008, i.e. the requirement for waivers a.k.a. provisional teaching permits a.k.a. temporary teaching licenses by Immigration and Labour.

    Nothing else you can do than to find a new employer, work there for at least 1 year and get yourself the evaluation.

  12. CELTA and Thai Teacher Licence?

    Any degree plus CELTA doesn't qualify for the TCT teacher license. A degree in education, any degree plus a post graduate diploma in education/ teaching profession or equivalent does.

  15. Have you got your teacher's license?

    The teacher I'm learning Thai with doesn't have one. No need. If she would have one for other purposes, she wouldn't give it to me. Why would she?
