“In my first week, you have guided me on building confidence and in knowing that my dream to Teach English, and help my students have a better future, is very possible.

The OVC promotes equal opportunity to all South Africans. Generally schools favor teachers who speak English as a first language. If English is not your 1st language, you might have a difficult time in finding employment and even earn a lesser salary.
Job Placements for Degree Holders:
If you are 22 - 44 years of age and hold a degree, in any field, you will be placed in a guaranteed teaching position after the completion of the course.
Job Placements for Non-Degree Holders: or English second language speaking applicants:
If you do not hold a degree in any field, only placement assistance will be offered. Your consideration for placement is completely under the discretion of our Thai placement partner. Based on past experience, your odds of being offered a teaching position are still excellent, as the demand for EFL teachers in Thailand far exceeds the supply. However, we cannot 100% guarantee you a teaching position being a non-degreed candidate.
TEFL Courses start on the 1st Monday of every month.
Chiang Mai - January to December
Krabi - April, May or October, November
