Thailand Koh Chang TEFL Program Summary

Located on the beautiful island of Koh Chang, Thailand, the training is completed over a 4-week period, during which you will learn all the theoretical and practical skills needed to teach TEFL effectively. In addition to this you will gain confidence and experience by engaging and teaching real students in Thai schools. This experience combined with the training will help you to feel ready and prepared to enter the exciting industry of TEFL which has the potential to take you all over the world

This course differs from our other TEFL Heaven program in Thailand in so much as it’s run throughout the year meaning greater flexibility and potentially a shorter wait to get into that dream job of teaching English abroad. This is one of the very best TEFL courses in Thailand!

The course provided an environment that was communal and supportive. The trainees came from different backgrounds and for different reasons; though, were all learning to do the same thing- teach abroad. It was beautiful.

Accommodation is Affordable on a Teaching Salary

Accommodation is complimentary during training.

When in placement you will be given assistance in finding accommodation, normally from the school. It will cost you the equivalent of approximately 120 US dollars each month for rent and around 30 US dollars for other bills.

Your accommodation in your teaching placement will most likely be a one room Thai–style studio apartment or a house (depending on if you are sharing) and will be quite basic: double bed, shower, bathroom, fan or air con.

You would not normally have a TV, fridge or cooking facilities – Thai people eat out for nearly every meal and the cost of living is extremely low, with street vendors nearly everywhere, so not having a cooker shouldn’t be a problem for you.

Start Dates

On this program we assist you in finding work and this is guaranteed for all candidates. It is important to note that we give you all the tools, contacts and advice to get the job that you want, but that you have to apply for jobs. 

We work on a first come, first served basis and places fill up fast, so we advise you to apply sooner rather than later.

We also advise you to arrive 4 days before the course start date to overcome jet lag.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT COURSE START DATES

  • Some schools have start and end dates that differ by a few weeks either side. 
  • If you want a full term at a school, you can either renew after the first teaching period, or go on our other Thailand program, details of which are here.
  • *If you choose a course start dates that have school terms ending 30 Sept or 28 Feb then this means that you will join a school mid-term after training and will be able to have a shorter placement, with the option to renew for a second term.
  • **Some courses end with a large gap between TEFL training end dates and job start dates. There may be temporary work available like English camps or private teaching work, but generally candidates explore the country until the term starts.
  • You are advised to keep funds ready for living expenses until you get paid, and more if you choose a course date with a gap between course ending and job starting.

Reasons Why This Program is Popular

  • Flexible start dates that fit into your yearly schedule, meaning you can arrive in Thailand whenever you want in the year.
  • Shorter placements are available due to jobs starting mid term on most start dates.
  • Longer period in training (4 weeks rather than 3 weeks), meaning more time to befriend people, get used the country and culture, prepare for teaching, and enjoy island life.

Fees

Every TEFL Program we offer you comes with full training in TEFL, as well as job placement services, meaning you are certified to teach English worldwide. It's what you need to get paid teaching jobs in Europe, Asia and Latin America. It's the world standard qualification for teaching English abroad.

The price of the Thailand - Koh Chang program is £1297 UK pounds.  This is split into 2 payments for convenience. The first installment of £500 UK pounds is due as a non-refundable deposit taken to book your chosen course date. The final installment of £797 UK pounds is due no less than 30 days before your course start date.

No one can book a program with us unless they have passed an online video interview. We need to make sure the people we recruit are ready, willing and able to go live and teach abroad - and for the right reasons.

One of the best benefits of booking a trip through TEFL Heaven was that you have an immediate support system. Having the friends you make through TEFL has been one of the things that has gotten me through this trip. It's also amazing to receive advice and tips from your trainers who have been here at least 6 months
