We have a vacancy from May 2018 for a NES primary teacher Nakhon Ratchasima/Korat city centre.

They've asked for NES teacher but if a NNES has exceptional English with a neutral accent they'd be considered.

The post is as a homeroom teacher for a class of 32 prathom 2 students.  Each class has a Thai co teacher.  There are 18 x 50 minute classes a week.  

The subjects taught are,

English 6-7 periods
Science 6 periods
Health 1 period
PE 1 period every 2 weeks
Computers 1 period

The actual list of subjects may be different but its generally English, Science and one or two other subjects.  All books, teaching materials are provided.

All classrooms are aircon with an IP board projector. Teachers all have their own desktop computer and printer. Staff coffee room, free Thai lunch provided.

Science Lab
Maths Lab
computer room
Music Room
Library

all within the department

Pay starts at 35k a month and rises 1k a month every year, after the second year. Visa and work permit paid. 12 month contract. Government Social Health scheme.

There are lots of opportunities for private teaching EP students outside the school which is well paid, obviously thats not part of the contract but it can significantly boost your income, if you're willing to put the work in.

Most teachers have been at the school 5+ years some as long as 15 years. it's a great job with a good boss. The head of EP expects teachers to be 'team players' and help out at weekends once in a while (I'm talking once or twice a year) It is hard work but they rewards make it worth while.

Since I've been there we've been taken on paid trips to Khao Yai, Ko Chang and flown down to Ko Lipe.



I'm sure i've missed stuff out so feel free to ask any questions.

Just going to bump this up, as they are keen to get someone signed up well before the start of next term. Planning in advance!!!

This is a great job in one of the best EP's in the North East of Thailand. Lots of potential for well paying private work. You'd be joining a well established team of teachers.

NES only.

Well, if your school is happy with your standard of written English, I see no reason why they would not accept an NNES?

Are they open to negotiation in terms of the remuneration package?

Can you give the name of the school, or some other means by which you/the school can be contacted ? I know of a well-qualified person who is interested, but he is not a member here. When you read the following, you will understand why he has little interest in becoming one.
TO THE OPERATORS OF THIS SITE: I have had a devil of a time trying to join here, so I could reply to this. I have made many attempts, on different computers, over the last 3 months or so. I have sent two messages to your contact button. Finally today, I was able to gain acceptance as a member.

Hi, please send any CVs to sushi5734@gmail.com I might not reply until after the weekend, as I am coming down with flu but I will forward any applications I receive to the boss.

The job is at Anuban Nakhon Ratchasima School English Program

Unfortunately, being a government school they are fairly fixed as far as salaries go. That said, it's worth asking. They do have an annual raise after the first year but the basic salary is...basic =]
I have explained that wages haven't risen in well over a decade and that on face value, it doesn't make jobs paying 35k very appealing. Schools like Sarasas offer an extra 10k on top of the basic salary, for teaching the kids between 4-5pm every day.

I should point out that there is a very good market for private teaching students from our program, it's not unheard of for teachers to double or treble their salaries through private classes. That affords a very comfortable lifestyle in Korat. The EP has a very good reputation in the local area. Many teachers find themselves turning work down because they are already too busy. Obviously, that's separate from the school and it's down to how well the individual teacher establishes themselves and most importantly, how much the parents and students like you.

The program is well run and well equipped. The head of EP is quite young and speaks English well. She is open to new ideas and has a good balance between western and Thai thinking. It's harder work than most English Programs, although in my opinion, the rewards outweigh the extra workload.

There are 12 foreign teachers in the EP and over 40 in the school. It's a good team of people, who work well together and help each other out. The school would prefer a long term hire which is why they are prepared to take the time to recruit the right person. Unlike many schools in Thailand, they value consistency.

All in all, I think it's a great place to work. There's a reason why people have worked here for 15 years.

Stones and glasshouses. Why the question mark ELTony?

Let's keep it polite.

Hi Songsamnatee,

Welcome to our forum!

I am also very sorry to hear the difficulties you faced when you were trying to join our site. I seriously don't know what was/is the problem (though I'm still investigating the issue), but I apologize for the inconveniences it caused to you.
The first and only message I saw from you was yesterday. And the very moment after I read it, I registered a new account for you and hence you gained access to the site.

welcome 2

This would be wonderful for me, if not for age and my presence in China through June.

Well, that and I think my wife wants to settle in Buriram. Maybe there's another Catholic school in my future . . .

Yes, Buriram is probably a bit far to commute!

Korat, like a lot of the northeast cities is growing very quickly. We now have an international school in Korat city, who are in the process of building a brand new campus. It looks like Hogwarts on acid but they are finally building it. Up until now, they have been based in a shabby old building that used to be nursery and haven't had any western qualified teachers, as far as I know. There are still charging 400k a year and they parents were growing restless. I presume that they'll hire at least a few qualified teachers, if they are investing a lot of money building a flash new school.

What a brainless post. You've made an idiotic statement with a question mark. Somebody's offering a job and you've got nothing else to do than criticizing his English. Exceptional.
