TEFL Course Review

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.

Course Schedule

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.

Course Evaluation

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.

TEFL Courses

When a teacher enrolls in an Entrust TEFL training program, he or she will leave equipped to successfully navigate the English-teaching world of Thailand. The fully immersive course provides knowledge and skills useful in real-world interactions with Thai students, as well as an understanding of the important cultural differences between the West and Thailand.

Entrust TEFL offers two training packages: Basic TEFL Course and Premium TEFL Course.

Basic TEFL Course: What is it and What Does it Include?

In 140 hours of hands-on, in-classroom training, teachers will gain practical experience in English teaching to non-native speakers and leave with an internationally-recognized accreditation. One important feature of Entrust TEFL’s basic course is the ability of teachers to choose which parts of the training options they will find most useful or are most interested in.

The elements of the well-rounded basic course include:

  • 140 hrs. In-Class TEFL Course
  • Study Material and Course Books
  • In-Country Orientation of the culture
  • New Teachers’ Starter Pack
  • TEFL Certificate which is Recognized Internationally
  • Access to the Student Portal & LMS
  • Three Full Days at a Real School
  • Conduct a Real English Camp
  • Certified Volunteer Certificate
  • Thai Language Lesson
  • Thai SIM Card & Internet
  • Ongoing Alumni Support

Entrust TEFL goes above and beyond what other training programs do, providing a complete network of support from beginning to end – and even beyond with the support of the alumni network as teachers move into the work field. Again, one excellent advantage of Entrust TEFL over other training programs is the flexibility it offers. For example, a teacher already familiar with Thai culture may choose to forego the cultural training in favor of more time building their teaching skill sets.

Premium TEFL Course:  What is it and What Does it Include?

Teachers who opt for the Premium TEFL Course enjoy all the benefits of in-class training and cultural education of the basic course plus a fully supported experience which includes:

  • Airport Pick-Up and Transportation to Hotel/Resort
  • Hotel/Resort Accommodation
  • Thai Culture Immersion Trips
  • Organized Excursions (Island Hopping or Mountaineering)
  • Real Job Placement Guarantee
  • Non-Immigrant Visa Support

The Premium TEFL Course is an excellent option for teachers who want a completely worry-free experience while transitioning to their new position. Entrust TEFL helps teachers work through all the details so that they can focus on succeeding in the classroom and thriving in their new home.
