Entrust TEFL’s training program is designed to equip teachers with the skills to succeed in a fun, relaxed learning environment alongside fellow Western teachers.
Teachers will leave fully prepared to thrive in the Thai education system with the ability to navigate through its unique challenges.
Entrust TEFL has a long and well-established track record of proven results. 6,000 teachers have successfully completed the course and moved on to utilize their new skill sets in Thai classrooms across the country.
The Entrust TEFL training course is 140 hours of hands-on learning over a three-week period, Monday to Friday, 8 hours every day. One major advantage of Entrust TEFL’s program over others is that it enables teachers to finish in three weeks rather than four and move more quickly into their desired positions to get started teaching.
Each week, as teachers become more advanced, the training moves into real-world environments where teachers can practice teaching real students with the help of experts to guide them and build confidence in the classroom.
The in-class practicum, under the supervision of Entrust TEFL staff, is conducted in underprivileged schools in the Chiang Mai and Krabi areas, meaning that teachers get the opportunity to make a difference in children’s lives while gaining important experience simultaneously. Real-world experience is also gained in Entrust TEFL’s fun English camps.
By the third week, teachers are ready to begin work and the majority of this week is spent polishing newly acquired English-teaching techniques and preparing to move onto their new positions at their chosen school.
At the end of the course, teachers complete an evaluation before earning their new internationally-recognized TEFL certificate. The evaluation is divided into three parts: theoretical knowledge, practical knowledge, and real-world knowledge.
The TEFL Certificate
After successful completion of the course, teachers will have earned the gold standard TEFL certificate. It is the only TEFL certificate recognized by the Thai Ministry of Education. It is also recognized by the World TEFL Accrediting Commission (WTEFLAC) and the International Association of Teachers as English Foreign Language (IATEFL).
Moving into the Field
Entrust TEFL has benefits beyond the completion of the course. The alumni network will be accessible to all graduates, allowing teachers to share their new experiences and exchange advice. Entrust TEFL creates a friendly atmosphere where teachers form long-term bonds and help each other succeed in their new positions as TEFL teachers in Thailand.
