If you want to work in Thailand the first thing you need to have is at least a bachelor degree in any subject. You don’t need to be a teacher by profession. You can be an engineer, a software developer or an artist. As long as you have a confirmation of a degree you are good to go. Nowadays many schools look for math, chemistry and physics teachers, so if you can teach one of those subjects it is an additional advantage as the benefits and pay are much better.

Most of the schools in Thailand look for native speakers, but if you are from a different country and have a good knowledge of English, have required papers, then there’s nothing to stop you. It will probably take you a bit longer to find work, but it is not impossible. If you are not a native speaker, but have a British, or a US, passport then you can apply for jobs in Thailand as a native speaker. For more information >> click


The easiest way of applying for work is to send your full resume and portfolio with photo to email info@tonyeducation.com (There is no application fee because your school will pay for you), we will start from that. About the application process >> click
