The health and safety of our trainees, staff, and students is our first priority. As such, TEFL Campus is committed to implementing legally-mandated, as well as scientifically-based, procedures that will ensure we minimize any risks associated with contracting COVID-19.
We successfully ran a course in July with only a few necessary changes to class format. Our Course Director held some lectures via Google Meet. Although in-class lectures are more dynamic, trainees were grateful for being able to attend the course.
We resumed our normal TEFL course schedule on 29 June 2020. Our remaining 4-week course dates (and Combined Course dates) in 2020 are as follows:
7 Sept – 2 Oct (17 Sept)
12 Oct 6 Nov (22 Oct)
9 Nov – 4 Dec (19 Nov)
You can find 2021 course dates, as well as daily course schedule information near the bottom of our Phuket page.
In response to the challenges associated with attending our TEFL training course, we’re offering a US$ 350 discount on all course fees in 2020.
This also carries over to our dual enrollment discount of US$ 350 per person (discounts cannot be combined). We also offer a free, advanced-level online TEFL certification course worth US$ 250 to all graduates. You can choose between Teaching English to Young Learners and Teaching Business English.
Currently, the Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT) has a ban on all international arrivals. This means that if you aren’t living in Thailand now, you will not be able to attend the course.
If you are outside Thailand and wish to earn TEFL/TESOL certification via an online course option, please contact us for further information.
If you’ve read that those with Education (ED) visas are able to enter Thailand, please note that ED visas are currently only being accepted for those in mainstream education. Our course is a professional development course and does not qualify for the ED visa at this time.
For the most part, we’re able to run our courses in the same manner as before. However, some lectures need to be conducted through Google Meet. This is limited to language awareness (grammar and phonology) and job support so that we can still deliver interactive lessons about classroom management, teaching theory, and group work.
We’ve also limited our maximum enrollment to eight trainees so that we can ensure proper social distancing in the classroom–student numbers for observed teaching practice is also limited.
Of course we’ll keep an eye on developments and adjust things accordingly.
