2Nd Waiver Refused

Recommended Posts

For me, there doesn't seem to be any way around this at the moment.

Here are two suggestions. Take them for what they cost you.

1. Go to the Director him/herself. At this point you are not going around/over/behind the department. They will lose face by you going but if you want to stay, and they actually want you, what's the big deal? Nothing for you to lose.... If he/she goes with you to the Imm and WP offices we can assume they aren't going to tell him "sorry" you can't hire this teacher.

2. The old fashion way of paying someone off works in some Government offices, but you have to have a Thai person/agent do the dirty work. Approach/visit an advertiser/agent who handles such things and see how much. I was quoted 25,000baht all inclusive, the 1900baht ext fee and the WP fee for another year. I guess that means about 20K was going to be split among three people if my math is correct.

I know people are trying to be helpful and I think we all know the lay of the land, but we must exercise care in openly discussing things which violate the law.

You are welcome to be a little more specific with people by PM, if you chose.

Activities which are less-than-legal are usually accomplished by people who know someone.

We had a person who was eminently not qualified (by their standards), but who was qualified by ours and for a very specific subject and one that the gov't deemed important. His paperwork sailed through without a hitch based solely on common sense. An unusual situation and I doubt that I would try it again.

Hi all

Very interesting thread. I have a Masters Degree in Leadership for Children and young people services and a CertTESOL qualification validated by Trinity College London. Would I need to undertake the course and sit a test or would I have enough credits to obtain a teaching license, therefore enabling the school to apply for a work permit? I am curreently in the UK but have been offered a position.

Any advice will be welcomed

Kind regards

Andy

If not, you can get a waiver and apply for the WP. That will give you 2 years to complete the cultural course to get another waiver.

It also depends on what kind of school it is. Universities are exempt from the requirement for a teaching license.

Andy, You MA would not count towards the TCT License as your degree is aimed at Social Services and councelling? Correct me if I am wrong? Did any of your modules have any credits awarded that are related to teaching in the UK school system?

You don't have QTS so I would assume that you will have to sit the tests.

As another poster has pointed out though......if it's a Uni then its not required.

It also depends on whether the Teacher's Council start the culture course again within then next 2 years. :lol:
