Searching for a school which hire african teachers without any problems.

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

My collegue just got fired because of her skin colour and nationality (ugandian). It’s quite hard to find a place where people would treat someone like that with respect.

 

Does anyone know a school or an agency which hires african teachers? She has all required documentation, degrees, teaching licenses.

 

Any information regarding this would be highly appreciated.

 

Thank you.

What's her TOEIC score? What was her last salary? I know a private school in Lamphun paying a pittance but hiring African teachers.

Is it the color of her skin or her nationality? Immigration have a very low opinion of Africans.

Africans also have issues getting visas in the nearby countries.  A Ugandan Science teacher I know had to go back to his home counry to get a new visa!  Schools that care about having legal teachers and are aware of this difficulty may be reluctant to hire Africans.

Sarasas schools give 35k as a starting salary. At least in Bangkok and Kanchanaburi. They usually provide with housing or housing allowance too.

That salary is for native speakers with a valid degree only.

If she was hired in the first place, then skin colour and nationality were not a factor in her hiring process, so it difficult to believe that skin colour and nationality was the reason she was fired.  Just saying.

I'm sort of interested to hear you guess what the native language of a Ugandan teaching English internationally is likely to be. 🤔

Quite a high salary for such an average TOIEC score.

 

There a native speakers making less than that in government schools.

I was going to ask the same.  The OP should come clean and state more clearly why she was fired.  Clearly, it was not because of her skin color.

I am NOT saying this is the case but most applicants from these nations typically have fake documents in relation to their academics. It is quite possible the school made simple checks and found that the paperwork submitted was false.

 

B4 you jump on me, yes, I have first hand experience of this and it wasn't just one applicant. If you inform that you need a certain type of degree, they will turn up with that exact degree. A group in my local town were found with printing gear and stamps to create degrees where necessary. They were crude and could be easily spotted by a NES eye but most applications went through the faculty who are Thai.
