He should leave Phuket; just too much competition when one does not have a degree. There are many jobs down south. If he went job hunting if the nearby provinces I am sure he could and something.
Look, there are legal, creative ways, for non-degreed NES to work here in LOS.
The school they're working in is a recognized, highly respected school and I'm privy to the inner workings and nobody is being bought off; the staff are excellent at getting the teachers they want and Thai law supports what they do to get around the degree requirement.

Few teachers possibly realise just how many schools are applying for the two-year teachers licence waiver. Frankly it is cheaper and easier for a school to obtain a waiver letter for all of its teachers, qualified or not, than to fuss about with obtaining Thai teachers' licenses.
I wish my school/uni would do the same.
I have numerous years teaching, studying for a degree and they can't help me....

As others have mentioned, getting a job in Thailand without a degree is fairly easy. It is harder in places like Phuket, but out in the sticks and in Bangkok is fine. It wont be the highest paying, or the most secure and if you plan to stay in Thailand long term, not having a degree will be a big cloud over you.
This is it... The apocalypse.
I'm studying T.E.S.O.L.
At that famous uni that had a massive thread about it, that everyone said was a con. Six months down the line, it turns-out it's not a con and the course is real, so is the uni, accreditation and the classes are running well.

Funny; what the OP doesn't realize is; she got some really good advice. No?
So the bottom line is, it's best to have a degree and be able to operate without mommy operating the Tardis. Set Laow, howeveryouspellit.
I think Bert is correct in his assumptions. No way in hell this post is genuine. Read it again. It makes no sense. Of course, Natalie's investigative skills are based on someone's IP address so shit like this gets passed around and you indeed do fall for it. Seriously, a mom asking for advice for her 28 year old son in Phuket? It makes no sense.
