In response to TEFL Heaven Scam? (Lisa W.)

TEFL Heaven is heavily promoted in Thailand. After finishing your TEFL training which should cost around 1500 Dollars on some idyllic island somewhere – Phuket/ Samui etc… After studying a little during the day and partying all night you will then be headed off with your brand new 3 week old TEFL certificate to teach in some government school in Thailand. Now most young people would jump at this opportunity. The unscrupulous agencies then get them in and pay their staff 30000 Baht per month, and they will jump at the opportunity. With the promise of guaranteed work after the TEFL anything will do. This allows the agencies to get rid of their current teachers or underpay them. You will then be thrust into a classroom and expected to come up with miracles yourself. Support from the agency will be limited but actually most care less. If you last for 6 months they would be happy. Four would do because then it is the break and they do not have pay anything and hopefully you will move to greener shores, so they can get the next group of unsuspecting, green newbies in to fill the shoes that no one else wants, and can underpay them. To be fair this is just a way to control the industry, just a money-making scam where they could care less about the result. Everyone makes money except you. The students suffer, the new teachers may last for 4 months or so. Hopefully they do not make any waves or ruffle any feathers in the 4 months that they are around until they have and enough and move on to greener fields. Everyone is happy – TEFL Heaven, the agency and maybe the school director after he got his hand back. The kids less so who realise after 2 months they have been short changed. But hey who cares – this is the land of smiles. If it does not work, smile a lot, play a game and all should be ok
