Primary English Program
Candidates for the primary program must be patient, kind...
and have a love of learning. The Primary Program (Prathom) consists of grades 1-6. This program forms the basisof the original English Programme and is consistently producing the Top Ranked students in our area. We were the first school in the area to operate an English Program for primary students and we feel the graduates speak for themselves (in English!). The primary classes are capped at 30 students with each class having a Thai and Native Speaking homeroom teacher. Primary periods run for 50 minutes each and the class day has a morning, lunch and afternoon break. This programme needs dedicated Education Professionals.
Secondary English ProgramThe Secondary Program operates differently from the Primary program. Secondary Program students come from a wide educational background including English Programmes, EIP and Thai Regular Programmes.
This presents challenges, opportunities, creative options and active teaching styles for educators with the ability to get involved. The ideal candidate for the Secondary Program should be dedicated to improving students of all levels as well as the existing program, be adaptable and also be pro-active with curriculum changes. They should also have experience or possess TEFL training as well as a suitable background for the subjects they will teach. "Mathayom" or secondary classes are capped at 30 students per class, with several grade levels having more than one class. The periods are in 50 minute blocks with breaks throughout the day. All NES teachers will have a "Homeroom" they will "help look after" with their Thai homeroom teacher counterpart. NES teachers are subject teachers, moving from class to class throughout the day teaching their respective subjects. Graduates in Math and Science fields are wanted for the upper secondary, but most importantly the candidates need to be open minded and ready to teach basic English.
Main CampusNow hiring: -Grade 7-12 Regular Program English Teacher = 20 periods per week working with regular program students in the "normal" Thai programme.
This is for teachers who can handle the demands of a "real' Thai classroom- 55 students in the classroom, teaching True ESL, to B1 level students. If you are an ESL teacher and want to make a difference and work in a true Thai environment, this is the place for you! --This is not an EP job but is covered under the same contract with same remuneration. However, some benefits such as air con classrooms and small class sizes do not apply.
Primary "EIP" English Teacher: teach about 20 periods to our super excited EIP students!
- These students study in the REGULAR program, but receive all their English lessons from NES and in air conditioned classrooms. Great working environment, but not as resourced as the E.P, this is a "true" TEFL teaching job. This is for teachers who are self starters, can set a very strong work ethic and have ESL experience.
About Us:Srithammarat Suksa school is a private Christian school in Nakon Si Thammarat, Thailand. Srithammaratsuksa is a well-established school with over 5000 students in K-12.
We have one of the largest English Programs in Southern Thailand. The English Program is now in its 16th year, and continuing to grow and improve in size, quality and reputation. We currently have about 45 Foreign teachers from the United States, Canada, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom. Our English Programme classes are limited to 30 students. We work in a friendly and supportive environment on a beautiful tree-lined campus adjacent to a large city park. Read more Our city, Nakon Si Thammarat, is an ancient trading capital with many modern/western conveniences: Internet, satellite TV, pizza, fast food, malls, super stores… you name it. Renting a house can be done for about 10-15% of monthly salary, leaving plenty to experience local culture in our medium-sized, NON-touristic Thai city. Beaches, mountains, caves and waterfalls are within a short drive, and the famous tourist meccas of Ko Samui, Ko Pa Ngan, Krabi and Phuket are a short drive away. However the town still has the “small town vibe” and is very much “real Thailand”. For more information on Nakon Si Thammarat, please see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/
