A leading name in training and teacher education in Asia, Asian College of Teachers has been in operation since 2007 with over 50,000+ alumni from across the globe.
ACT’s International School Experience program is aimed at those who are looking to ensure a flourishing career in teaching and training in Asian countries. As you enrol for the program, you will be required to volunteer and work in local Thai Education projects and internships and experience everything first-hand. This enables you in getting a detailed knowledge of the functioning of the education system in the country and the various teaching approaches practiced there. You will be based in Bangkok, from where you will be escorted to various other places and given educational tours which may also be outside the city.
You need to pay for a volunteering program because for conducting the program, we at ACT do not receive any form of financial aids from government or any religious organisation, therefore, a project fee from our volunteers and interns is required so that we are able to provide for the costs essential to cover the expenditure of the program and provide you with the best possible quality experiences that you deserve. However, we always try our best to keep the fees minimal compared to some of the best volunteer and internship project fees offered throughout Asia.
Thailand, a major tourist location for people around the world, is a country that suits the taste of all from 8 to 80. Located in Southeast Asia, the country is situated on the coasts of the Andaman Sea and the Gulf of Thailand. Mouth-watering, pocket friendly street food will excite the foodies; a great climate, fascinating culture, magnificent mountains and wonderful beaches, Thailand has every reason to attract an avid traveller. Bangkok, the capital city of Thailand, is the one of the most visited and busiest tourist destinations in Asia, with a crowd that always seem to be bustling with life and enthusiasm.
Though most of the Thai people only know their language and are not well-conversed in English, this has not at all hampered tourism in the region. The Thais believe in sa-nuk (sense of fun) and live by it all through their life, even spreading it among those visiting and exploring this south-east Asian country. What makes Bangkok all the more inviting is its multi-faceted personality, as the city comprises of megamalls on one side along with 200-year-old village homes on the other.
As you attend our program in Bangkok, you will be escorted various educational institutes and volunteer for projects and various other related jobs and learn about the modern global teaching practices and approaches being practiced in institutions worldwide.
