The In-Class Course
The Virtual Vantage Course
Knowing Does Not Make You Skilled
The practicum—observed teaching practices—is where knowledge is transformed into teaching skills.
Skills are applied knowledge and can only be developed through practice. That’s why live practice teaching is essential—especially for new teachers. It's the heart and soul of a professional-class TEFL program.
Trainees teach non-English speaking students in a live classroom—a minimum of 6 class hours—each lesson on a different language topic.
You get valuable feedback from our experienced trainers after each session as your new teaching skill set begins to develop.
Both Vantage’s In-Class Course and our Combined Course include a practicum.
Virtual Vantage has a streamed online practicum in real-time with real students.
"There are currently some 7,000 foreign teachers in Thai schools...another 10,000 teachers are required."

A TEFL Treasure Trove
Vantage’s English Teaching Roadmap is a TEFL guidebook that's a gold mine of information.
The introduction makes a strong case for why it’s worth investing in a certified training program. The next section explains basic concepts in simple, clear language and how the program works.
The section on ‘the world of English teaching’ is factual and up to date and shows how teaching English can be a great career platform.
The final section offers all the information you need to navigate Thai Immigration, living and learning in a foreign culture, and most important, getting your first job.
I highly recommend reading this Roadmap before you make any decision about paying for any course on teaching English.
