On March 12, 2019, the Department of Education (DepEd) convened a meeting with the Ministry of Education (MOE) of Thailand at the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC) to discuss the employment of Filipino teachers for the “English for All” project of the Kingdom of Thailand.
DepEd Secretary Leonor Magtolis Briones stated that it was Dr. Teerakiat Jareonsettasin, Thailand Minister of Education, who initiated the inter-agency meeting on the proposed Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on the government-to-government hiring of Filipino teachers.
The objective of the said MOU is to improve and promote the international professional exchanges between the two countries to uphold teachers’ protection and welfare.
Under this MOU, the process of facilitating the recruitment, entry, and exit of Filipino teachers to and from the Kingdom of Thailand would be in accordance with the provisions of Thailand and the prevailing laws and regulations of the Philippines, pursuant and in accordance with the rules and regulations of the different Philippine government agencies such as the Philippine Overseas Employment Agency (POEA), Overseas Workers Welfare Agency (OWWA), Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE), Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA), Professional Regulation Commission (PRC), and Commission on Higher Education (CHED), among others.
Meanwhile, M.L. Pariyada Diskul, Secretary to the Minister of Education of Thailand said that they have big projects with teachers from the Philippines who are very highly regarded.
“Your teachers are very diligent and blend in well with our culture. We want to recruit Filipino teachers to be placed in the Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC) government schools, which are the three provinces in the eastern side of Bangkok to upgrade the English competencies of the children in that area,” Diskul stated. “I hope that this will be the beginning of many other projects to come.”
In our previous article, we have published the news about Thailand’s plan on hiring Filipino teachers for the “English for All” program. In just a couple of hours after publishing the said news, we have already received several inquiries on how to apply for teaching positions in Thailand. The truth is, we really don’t know how as we have not tried applying ourselves. We also made it clear that we are not an employment agency nor are we hiring directly for the said positions. The good thing is, we have done something for you so please read on.
Since a lot of teachers are seemingly interested in pursuing a teaching career in Thailand, we have searched for different employment agencies in Thailand for Filipino teaching opportunities. You may get in touch with these agencies and inquire about the teaching opportunities in Thailand that they offer to Filipino teachers as well as their hiring processes. Here they are:
