Question: By enrolling in Island TEFL’s Thailand Placement Program T
and not settling for a program from somebody else, an Island TEFL
applicant can achieve huge savings of around $800 - $1,800 in program
costs alone! It almost sounds too good to be true, how can this be
Answer: Island TEFL reaches out directly to applicants, through its own direct advertising and recruitment efforts, rather than employing a third party agent or “partner” company to recruit applicants to its Thailand Placement Program T. By simply cutting out the middle man or agent in the recruitment process, Island TEFL is able to achieve huge savings in program costs that it passes on directly to their enrollees! These significant savings are often large enough to pay for a return airfare to Thailand as well as the investment cost for one of Island TEFL’s internationally accredited, 120 hour, TEFL/TESOL certification courses, if the applicant is not already TEFL/TESOL certified.
When you take into consideration that the Island TEFL Placement Program T also provides private, furnished, rent free accommodations for our teachers for the duration of their teaching placements, additional savings can run into thousands of dollars over the course of a year.
Island TEFL teachers are amongst the highest, if not the highest, paid EFL teachers in Thailand. Island TEFL teachers receive more than twice as much in monthly salary as the payments received by i-to-i enrollees.
Island TEFL Program T enrollees and their families, have the peace of mind in knowing that our company is registered and headquartered in the U.S. as well as Thailand. Applicants receive total pre departure assistance and are met upon arrival in Thailand and we offer 24/7 support in Thailand. All accommodations and schools are located in safe environments throughout Thailand.
