Hi,

You could easily be employed as a trainer, or teacher's assistant. You'll be eligible for a work permit.

Many schools will hire you.

Wish you the best!

Morning All,

So I gave all of the required documents to my school to enable me to teach as a "special lecturer" for a year whilst I finish my studies. The school are now panicking and will not write the contract in case they get it wrong. Not quite sure what all the fuss is about, but having been here for a while now I understand the Thai way.

They have asked me to find an example, in Thai (if English no problem as I can translate). So please, please,please does anyone have an example of such a contract?

Thanks very much in anticipation.

"Special lecturer" in what? I know there're some guys on TVF who worked last year as teacher's assistant, or trainers. Why don't you go that way?

Being a 'Special lecturer' and teaching English might wake up sleeping dogs.Good luck!-wai2.gif

Why don't you read all of the post before asking questions?

The letters from KSP that Mario posted quite clearly said "volunteer teacher" of "special lecturer". That idea was also advised by KSP in an email they sent me.

So.... does anyone have a copy of the required wording in the contract?

Thanks.

Sounds like its time to get qualified. I assume the reason waivers are given is so that you can use that time to get the proper qualifications, which you have not. If you do not act soon enough, then you will have no reason to complain when you are left behind.

OP is a TV member since September 2006. The discussions on TV about the TCT requirements started in October 2006. Many have ignored the warnings with the thoughts that the rules would never be enforced.

The current problem for several is not having the required university degree. No university degree means no provisional teaching permit/ waiver and no permission to sit the TCT Professional Knowledge Tests.

True. BUT if you are indeed studying for said degree then you should be able to get a waiver with proof of attendance etc. If the degree is NOT an ED degree then you can still start taking the tests. You do not provide a copy of your degree until you pass all 4 parts (or in the case of a friend who took all 4 at the same time. His results were broken down into 9 results like the Thai test. He still has 2 to pass!!!!! )

Sitting the TCT Professional Knowledge Tests without holding a university degree is fraud, thaicbr, as holding a degree is a requirement.

aidenail.

That well may be.. But as they don't check the degrees at each test. i'm pretty certain they do not want to upset the money cart that these tests are. I'm not condoning it i'm just stating what happens.

It is peoples livelihoods after all.

Yet another poster who fails to read the whole thread, and instead decides to go for a ride on his high horse.

As I said earlier it is not Impossible to get 3 back to back waivers. Especially if you can show you are forwarding your education. I'm guessing you have changed education area's so even easier.

I am currently on my third waiver. Doing the tests.
