There is a school advertising at the minute and it states that Thai visas are not given to anybody who doesn't have a minimum of 3 years teaching experience. Is this true? minimum of three consecutive years teaching experience. These are requirements that a foreign national wishing to work as teacher in Thailand must fulfill in order to obtain a work permit. In light of this we are sorry to say that NQTs (Newly Qualified Teachers) should not apply. Also if anyone can give an opinion on the school that would be great. Google the text above and the school comes up.
