Thailand’s popularity among international visitors means that local employers often look for English language fluency when hiring local staff. As a volunteer teacher on this education program in Phang Nga, you have the opportunity to contribute to UN SDGs, #4 Quality Education, and #8, Decent Work and Economic Growth while developing your own teaching, leading, and teamwork abilities.
Volunteers on this teaching program in Thailand will live with other participants in the village of Ban Nam Khem, in Phang Nga province, an area renowned for its natural beauty. After a five hour introduction to methods used for Teaching English as a Foreign Language, TEFL, as well as training on Thai customs, classroom management, and lesson planning, volunteers on this Thailand teaching program will go on to assist local teachers with teaching conversational English classes. Volunteers have the opportunity to teach a range of students, from those at a local kindergarten all the way up to primary school level, at a diverse range of institutions including formal government educational institutions and informal community centres.
You might also get involved leading after school activities like art and craft sessions to develop the fine motor skills of children or sports lessons to develop their gross motor skills. Throughout the program, volunteers will be able to observe classes being conducted by experienced teachers and receive regular feedback from TEFL qualified GVI staff. There will also be the opportunity to teach English to members of the community.
