Teach For Thailand’s mission is to develop collective leadership to expand educational opportunities for children in Thailand. We do this through the “Fellowship Program” where we recruit high potential candidates from all backgrounds to teach in economically challenged schools for two years. Through two years of teaching and working with key education stakeholders, our Fellows are exposed to the grassroot realities of education system and cultivate the knowledge, skills, and mindsets needed to attain positions of leadership in and beyond education, working collectively to build a vibrant movement for educational equity across Thailand.
Our selection and training methods are high in standard to ensure that every student will receive only high-quality lessons from our fellows. Out of 1,505 people who registered, only 65 participants had made it to the end of the selection process and joined our 8 week intensive training program. All of them will be evaluated again and some who do not meet the qualification will not be placed in schools. However, the learning process of fellows will not simply end with the training program. The Training and Support team will organize more activities, such as regular coaching and training sessions, together with Teach For Thailand’s network throughout their 2-year journey to help every fellow continuously improve themselves, deepen their understanding of the root causes of educational issues, and encourage them to create long-lasting impacts on schools and communities. In the end, Teach For Thailand believes that this valuable experience will not only inspire but also benefit fellows upon their entry to instigate changes to Thai education in other sectors of society.
