BANGKOK, THAILAND. The Teachers' Council of Thailand has added another requirement for foreign teachers who are seeking to obtain a temporary teaching permit to teach here in Thailand.
The letter from the teachers' council dated 27 October 2014 shared by Paul Nobles of Thailand Foreign English Teachers Network Facebook group stated that an 'original official degree confirmation letter for graduates of university/college' must be acquired in advance before the next round of requesting for a 2-year teaching permit.
The required letter shall be an official headed paper of the college/university and clearly confirms that the applicant has successfully completed his/her course and must also include the classification the applicant has received, the dates of attendance and graduation. In addition, this letter must bear an original university/college seal or stamp and signature of the Registrar sent in a sealed envelope with the university/college's stamp. If opened prior to receipt, this letter will be declared null and void.
The confirmation letter must be sent to the Teachers' Council of Thailand in this address: Registration and Licensing Bureau, 128/1 Nakhon Ratchasima Road, Dusit, Bangkok 10300 Thailand.
