This course acts as an amazing platform for anyone- natives or non-native English speakers, with or without a degree / diploma/teaching qualification /experience – thus eliminating all discriminations and ensuring the TEFL/TESOL trainees to take up teaching as a prospective career option in future.

What do you need to bring
  • An open mind and sense of humor!
  • Good copies of all your qualifications (degree etc.). Keep your originals safely with someone back home, in case a school insists on an original so it can quickly be couriered to you if need be.
  • For SA and UK citizens, a police clearance certificate is required for a work permit as a teacher (if you look for a job after the completion of the course).
  • We provide all stationery, but if you want to do lesson planning after school hours (and after the course), a laptop/notebook will make life easier for you. We do have computers in class, but they need to be shared, so it's advisable to bring a laptop, as you'll need it after the course for teaching.
  • Clothing for teaching to maintain as per guidelines.
  • Everything else as per normal travel requirements and personal effects.
Dress Code

Dress code for class sessions at the Samui TEFL training centre is 'smart-casual' - no caps or hats, no plunging necklines for ladies, no overly revealing outfits, in the event that we have visitors to the centre. Please refrain from vests and 'short' shorts.

Dress code for teaching practices is as follows:

Men: Long pants. Button shirt, can be short sleeved, a polo shirt is fine. All piercings must be removed and tattoos must be covered. Closed shoes.

Ladies: No cleavage visible. Skirts or pants on or below the knee. You will need at least one skirt, as one of the schools we teach at insists on skirts. Shoulders must be covered. NO BAGGY CLOTHING. They want a smart appearance please. All piercings other than earrings must be removed, and all tattoos must be covered. Make sure that underwear and midriff do not show when moving about or bending. Some schools insist on closed shoes (no toes showing) so bring a pair.

NOTE : It's often difficult to find larger shoe sizes in Thailand.

In general, teachers dress conservatively. You are expected to dress appropriately for your teaching practices, as you will be actively teaching in a real school environment. As a teacher in Thailand you are revered. You are expected to dress and behave appropriately so that you deserve this respect granted to you.
