We aim to give our candidates and teachers best accommodation possible. The candidates will be provided accommodation from 2 pm one day before the course starts, and the same needs to be released the day after the completion of the course by 12 noon. The candidates are provided with accommodation in a reputed hotel at the center of Bangkok. The hotel rooms are equipped with all state of the art amenities. All our students are given 1 days extra time to stay after the course.
The hotel in Bangkok is also located in close proximity to restaurants, shopping malls, spa, coffee shops and cyber cafes. There are many places to visit in Bangkok and on weekends the teachers can venture in and around Bangkok.
During the teaching assignment, the teachers are provided with accommodation by the schools. The school in remote areas will not have accommodations up to western standards. Most of the accommodations do not have air conditioner. There are no kitchens in most of the Thai houses. All the accommodations need a deposit amount, which is usually refunded to the candidates after 1 or 2 months. If the school is unable to give the teachers accommodation they will be given accommodation allowance instead.
Our teachers are placed all over Thailand and the location or school where the teacher will be placed would depend on the school and placement vacancy. The teachers can get ESL jobs in remote areas or near Bangkok.
A TESOL trained native English teacher enrolled for the Special Thailand Project can look forward to a maximum of 25 hours of teaching; not repeating a single class twice in a week. The class is usually 40-60 minutes long. (depends on the school). The normal class size in a Thai school is about 45-50.
A teaching week is from Monday to Friday, usually from 8am till 4.30pm. (timings vary from school to school), Teachers will have to schedule and submit lessons plans on a monthly basis. Thai schools do not operate on Thai national holidays, Saturdays and Sundays.
ESL teachers' duties include attending the morning assembly at 8 am and prepare separate lesson plans for each level and grades of students on a weekly basis.
ESL teachers under ACT should conduct themselves in a professional manner and portray a positive picture of ACT, their homeland and themselves. It is mandatory for an ACT-placed ESL teacher to respect all rules and regulations of the school.
The teachers should wear formals to the schools and also maintain a descent lifestyle outside school. Revealing clothes are not very well accepted in Thai society, especially by a teacher. Dress codes in Thai Public schools are stricter than the private ones.
Schools are spread in fourteen locations all over Thailand. Some schools are in Bangkok main city and adjoining places. Few locations where the schools are located are Khon Kaen, Petcahaburi, Saraburi, Samutprakan, Nothaburi, Ayuttaya, Samut Prakan, Phuket etc.
Visa & Work Permit
ACT aims at sending the entire set of relevant Visa papers to the respective Thai Embassy / Consulate for processing, 1 month in advance, before the ESL teachers land.
Work Permit can be applied for, only after the teacher has secured the Non-Immigrant B Visa. Application is forwarded, approximately after 2 weeks of teaching. The TESOL trained teachers assigned for ESL teaching in local schools pay for the copies of educational documents, passport pages, health certificate and photographs, whereas the school clears the processing fee in fetching the work permit.
