Work Options..end Of Waivers

Recommended Posts

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.

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

Read post 6.

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.

No. Same area, same school and only asking for 2nd waiver. I am studying now. Refused.

They refused a 2nd waiver even though you are studying for a degree? Very strange. Where are you studying?

The rules for a provisional teaching permit state that the applicant should hold a university degree.

The Thai education system will be better off when the minimum for a farang to teach is a Bachelor of Education or its equivalent. I read these posts with amusement, for that day is coming.

Why???? Do you teach? Are you Thai or a foreigner?

Do you understand the difference between teaching conversation English and teaching a Subject?

I'm sure Thai's will be happy to be paying market rate for a qualified teacher. whistling.gif

There are always exceptions and there are many good teachers without a degree in education (or a degree for that matter). There are also degreed education majors who are not good teachers, but I tend to agree that it would be a step in the right direction to have qualified teachers with an education degree. They will have to pay a competitive salary, though.

I know quite a few people who have tried to pursue continuing education with very, very little support from the school. Wages are deducted for time missed (even if there are no classes in session), etc., etc., etc.. It's sad, since these people are very committed to teaching, committed to the country and bring back good ideas.

We have had one teacher in all this time that has passed all of the exams (over a span of more than 4 years). Many have passed some of the exams. If I were in a position to have needed to do the exams or a course, I would have bit the bullet and done the course. It would have been completed in less than a year. Now teachers are worried about not getting extensions. That's one of the reasons I did my teaching course way back in 2004-2008 and got that out of the way. One less thing to worry about!

I take it you are referring to the 1 year upgrade to ed degree course?

I wasn't aware that it was still available in English.

A friend did the test 10 for the 1st time and passed 3 out of 4 tests. But strangely when he got his certificate it outlined it in the Thai teacher style saying he had passed 7 out of 9.

May 4 I'm doing the 2nd test. Then next time 4 & 5.
