Thai School Assistant
From the postcard perfect islands in its south to the captivating hill country of the north, Thailand stands as one of the world’s favourite tourist destinations, and our school assistant program enables you to not only explore everything the country has to offer, but make enduring friendships with people from all walks of life.
Letz Live will help you organise a placement at one of Thailand’s leading international schools where you will be employed assisting in the curriculum as a Gap Teacher. This will range from academic to sporting subjects, depending on your skills and interests, as well as some after school care programs throughout the week.
We will cover all accommodation and meal expenses, including the opportunity to sample the world-renowned Thai cuisine, as well as provide you with a comfortable living allowance that you can spend as you wish or save up for the school holiday periods. Our Thailand gap year placement allows you to immerse yourself in the Thai culture, without missing out on some of the creature comforts from home.
The Thai's have a reputation as one of the friendliest people in the world, and you will have plenty of opportunity to interact with the locals and maybe even learn to speak a little Thai! And when school holidays come around, you can venture to the north to meet the exotic hill tribe villagers, delve into the shopping chaos of Bangkok, or relax on the endless beaches and islands in the south of the country.
Our team will provide ongoing support, organising everything from your visas and a comprehensive in-country orientation on arrival in Bangkok, to helping you through the inevitable challenges that living in a completely different culture presents.
In return, we ask for a high level of professionalism and mature outlook from our participants, as well as someone who is willing to uphold the school’s values. For those that go above and beyond, there are possible school camp and sports tour travel opportunities throughout Southeast Asia, allowing you to see so much more than you expected!
Without a doubt, the more you put in, the more you will get out of your gap year experience, and our Thai placement is one of the most challenging, but rewarding ones we offer. Being immersed in a culture that contrasts from your own, together with the workload required of a teaching assistant and being away from your friends and family back home, can be difficult at times. But the immense growth in confidence, maturity and independence we see from our participants in Thailand is always striking and they return inspired by their travel experiences and ready to take on the challenges that life presents.
