 ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT/TEAM



As standards evolve, certifications like IELTS are also becoming essential for access to national and international study opportunities and qualifications and the wider employment market.

 

The British Council has a strong teaching presence in both Bangkok and Chiang Mai, and surrounding regions. There is a strong demand for English language learning in Thailand, being driven by the country’s economic growth, increasing internationalisation and a government vision for the future which is predicated on significantly improving levels of English language proficiency.

 

 

WHAT YOU WILL BE DOING AND WHY

Teachers are usually assigned to work in one teaching locations within a region although sometimes may be required to work in more than one location.

 

Teaching young learners represents most teaching activities nationally and you will be expected to be able to deliver YL classes. The British Council currently delivers courses to around 10,000 young learners and 2,500 adults at any one time. We aim to grow these numbers in the coming months and years.

WHAT IS INTERESTING ABOUT IT


This is creating opportunities for employment in ELT in a country which is a dynamic, diverse and exciting place to live and work.

 

The opportunity to develop professionally within a supportive, experienced and diverse team is one of the strongest attractions for teachers, combined with the opportunity to experience life and work in a fascinating country with a rich cultural heritage and international ambitions.

 

WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR


If you are Cambridge CELTA, Trinity CertTESOL or equivalently qualified, with at least 2 years post-qualification experience (1000 hours) work with us and you will have access to equally high-quality training and learning

ABOUT THE BRITISH COUNCIL

The British Council is the UK’s international organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities. We create friendly knowledge and understanding between the people of the UK and other countries. We do this by making a positive contribution to the UK and the countries we work with – changing lives by creating opportunities, building connections and engendering trust.

We work with over 100 countries across the world in the fields of arts and culture, English language, education and civil society. Last year we reached over 80 million people directly and 791 million people overall including online, broadcasts and publications. Founded in 1934, we are a UK charity governed by Royal Charter and a UK public body.

The British Council is committed to a policy of equality and to valuing diversity and is keen to reflect the diversity of the societies in which we work at every level within the organisation. We welcome applications from all sections of the community. We aim to abide by and promote equality legislation by following both the letter and the spirit of it to avoid unjustified discrimination, recognising discrimination as a barrier to equality of opportunity, inclusion and human rights. All staff worldwide are required to ensure their behaviour is consistent with our policies.
