Your information is completely correct. Yesterday I finished the 3 day course Language, Culture and Ethics at Chandrakasem (Jankesem) as written in my previous post. As I don't have any teaching credits I have to do the four tests. I applied already. More information can be found here: http://foreprof.ksp.or.th/
Reading thru the information on the link above, it states the applications must be complete by Oct. 8. What if you're late????
I sure am glad I work in a university.

I think you'll have to wait for the next test period. I've heard that the next one is in February 2008 and that there are plans to give the tests three times a year.
Thanks!!!! I'm getting my WP and visa renewed this week or next...hopefully can just wait it out.
They told my wife that this was being phased in over 3 years. Your current paperwork should be sufficient for a while yet.
Anyway, who knows? If this wipes out too many English teachers, they may change their rules!

As someone else said. No 2 schools are told the same things. I for one urge all Ferangs to not pay a dime for any of these courses unless you want to do it for yourself. I've no doubt that the only school who promote them are doing so out of personal greed and a kickback.Originally Posted by Qwerty2
I work at a school where they've told us all that they've applied for teachers licenses on our behalf and the school's shelling out for 'em. Also that in the very near future, unless you have a license, new job applicants will have to sit hours of exams before being accepted by the Ministry of Education. It currently takes about a year for the license to come through since the M of E is currently processing 60,000 licenses!

My wife gets real bad cramps with her real period...I hope it does hurt too much.Originally Posted by Stamp
Asked about it today and the admin guy said "Teachers license, oh, no worry". When I hear stuff like that, it makes me worry...have I been in Thailand too long?
Looks like bobman_y2k has found his new sexual outlet.
You're right...but its electrical outlets, not sexual ones. Friggin Thai houses come with one or two outlets in the entire house it seems. But I will admit that I was off topic and this is one of those thread that should be kept fairly serious.
I have heard about this but now the info helps.
^Mmmm........talking to yourself?
Okay, I'm getting ready to run the gauntlet. Have finished all the paperwork and the Thai Culture, Language and Professional Ethics course. Submitting the degree, foreign teaching credentials, recommendation letter and 500 baht (at least its going to the teachers council instead of beiong siphoned off by the local directors and administrators).Originally Posted by Qwerty2
The 3-year thing is a misnomer. All course and exam results have to be submitted within 3 years of completion. The old law said it would all be in effect in 3 years, but that was 5 years ago.
As far as professional ethics, it was a review of the laws governing teacher and administrator licensing, suspension and revocation. It certainly can't be enforced, as all Thai government schools would be shuttered for lack of staff. And the Rajabhat professors certainly got an earful of what farang teachers think of the current state of ethics in Thai schools.
When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.
