Finished PGCEi - Licence application Rejected

The TCT turned me down. I changed schools and i got on a 60 day tourist visa for the probation period. I converted that visa to a 90 day B visa and my new school applied for a new work permit (pgcei letter of enrollment included) which was rejected by TCT today.

 

I'd assumed that proof of enrollment demonstrated the prescribed professional development. I'm hoping that a final grade document (which means that a certificate is on the way of course) would be enough to get me the waiver given I'd be eligible for a 5 year license a few more weeks down the line. 

To be eligible for a teacher's license, you must have been working at a school not less than 365 days. Not one day less.

Hello  All

 

I finished my PGCEi - handed in my final assignment weeks ago but don't get the award confirmation until early December

 

I included my enrollment document which showed the period of study 10 Oct 2018-1 Oct 2019 but my work permit was rejected (the day after my study period ended ironically)

 

I've reached my waiver limit (6 years on a temporary license) but believed proof of enrollment would be enough to get me another waiver

 

Does Krusapha require award confirmation for a waiver now??

 

I'm flummoxed what to do as my visa runs out on 26 November.

 

Any advice greatly appreciated...

You have a few issues to get through before Kurusapa will issue you a teacher's licence.

Check here: http://site.ksp.or.th/about.php?site=englishsite&SiteMenuID=28

1 thing they look at is you had 6yrs worth of waivers but didn't even try to start on your course until the last year. They also want to see that you've attended seminars for professional improvement every year.

Your graduate information must be certified, translated and stamped with a copy of your transcripts sent to them directly from your school.

Read through the site, cross all your "T"s and dot all your "I"s and then reapply.

You can also try having your school director writing them a letter on your behalf outlining why you are such a valuable asset to his/her school and ask for 1 more waiver while you get everything else sorted.

Is that still the case? I know it was mentioned previously but it seemed to be a ridiculous amount of hassle and money.

 

I got my 5 year teacher license in May and never had to do that. I just gave the HR staff at my school all my original certificates and docs (BSc, all transcripts, PGCE, QTS etc) and they did the rest.

The school where you work certifies them, at least when you renew your full license. Not the school/university where you graduated from.

A letter of completion should do the trick. Stating the grades complete, satisfied all requirements, diploma is pending. Doubt transcript will unless it shows the course completed. I think this in addition to the letter is great. But I'd get the letter. I received my license on a letter of completion.

 

If it's just not working for you - TCT upstairs location, the side room that re-reviews and finalizes your stuff before going to committee. I spoke twice to a really lovely, sensible young woman. If you're currently working with the letter of completion perhaps beg a case for another waiver. Tell her school will be out a teacher second term. Just a hope there.

OP is not renewing but applying for the first 5 year licence. Much different requirements.

When I applied I had a PDF-version of my degree and transcript with a stamp on it saying "copy i accordance with original" and stamp from my university from when I needed an English version of my transcript. My university didn't send anything directly to the TCT. The school (employer) simply certified the documents as true.

 

I believe they are more relaxed on the actual license than on the waiver.
