Hiring Procedure

King’s College accepts applications from qualified native speakers. We require a university degree plus TEFL certification, usually at CELTA* level. Teaching experience is a big plus, especially experience of teaching children. An important asset, much valued in Thai culture, is a cheerful disposition. We very much want people to have a rewarding and fun time working with us.

Professionalism is a must. A copy of our policy document accompanies our contracts. You will see that Thais set great store by a neat appearance and punctuality and that we aim to maintain a high standard of excellence in the teaching we offer.

The school will send the necessary documents from Thailand to your nearest Thai consulate (Birmingham is best if you are in UK) to obtain a ‘non-immigrant B’ visa.

You need to download and complete an application form and send it to the consulate by post together with your passport, passport photos, and fee. The visa is usually issued in a day or two, and you are entitled to travel to Thailand. On arrival the school ensures that your work permit and teaching certificate are issued by the appropriate authorities.

You will need to make sure that the documents you present ALL have exactly the same name as it appears on your passport – including initials and first names. If there is a discrepancy you will have to contact your college or get a certification from the embassy in Thailand.

You will need to bring with you the following original documents -copies will not be accepted by the Thai authorities:

Degree certificate and transcripts, TEFL qualification certificate. On arrival, the teacher and the College exchange contracts (the same as the copy you will have been sent previously) and the College begins processing the work visa, which can take 1-2 months to finalize.
