Vantage TEFL Agents

Join the Team!

Vantage is looking for professional recruiters who can target potential TEFL candidates (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) who wish to begin a career teaching English overseas.  

 

Our TEFL program is an intensive one-month In-Class Course—with observed teaching practices. 

 

After training, we can place them in teaching jobs with our partner companies who are typically recruiting hundreds of teachers every year in schools and institutes throughout Thailand.

Proficient speakers have already mastered the subject—English. We will give them the foundational skill set to teach a language which is substantially different from teaching a specific subject like geography, biology or political science.

Vantage is an Easy Sell

Vantage TEFL Certification is the Bangkok training center for TEFL International (TI)—a network of 30 centers in 20 countries on 5 continents—that has issued 32,000+ TEFL certificates since 1998.

 

Our curriculum and course book have been developed and revised by specialist ESL educators. It trains thousands of new teachers around the world every year and has been independently accredited by independent universities.

 

TEFL International is the only 4 week TEFL/TESOL certificate course fully accredited through an American university—Fairmont State University in West Virginia, USA. Vantage graduates earn three Master’s level credits.

 

We have highly satisfied graduates. According to the definitive TEFL review site, teflcoursereview, Vantage is the highest rated program in Thailand.

 

In the 2018 GoOverseas Community Choice Awards, Vantage was #1 worldwide in the Overall Top TEFL Course Providers category out of their 500+ listings.

 

Finally, in Davis Pisarich’s book, Teaching in Thailand, he named Vantage the best TEFL program in Bangkok “by far.”

 

Perhaps we're doing something right.

Key Markets Targeted

The ideal TEFL candidate will be a native English speaker (NES) who is educated to the bachelor’s level in any major. Those are the two overriding qualifications required. There can be a lot of flexibility on other factors.

 

Non-native English speakers (NNES) can also be targeted provided they have a high level of English proficiency. We define this as at least a C1 level on the CEFR scale which is the industry standard for measuring English abilities across all four language skills.

 

Potential TEFL candidates will often be young—recent or near college graduates who may be pursuing a teaching career.  Or they may be doing a gap year or two as they have yet to decide on a career path following their education. Or they're a bit older and doing a career change into the teaching profession.

 

Increasingly, the business world values overseas cultural experiences so teaching abroad for a few years can provide both adventure and a pragmatic path to better non-teaching job opportunities back home.

 

The demand for English teachers has never been higher. The British Council estimates that by 2020, some 2 billion people will speak English as a first or second language.

 

You may have your own ideas on other segments and/or methods to successfully target TEFL candidates. We'd love to hear them!

Who's an NES?

In Thailand, that’s usually defined by the nationality of the teacher. The following nationalities are considered to have NES status:

 

  • The United Kingdom

  • The United States of America

  • Australia

  • New Zealand

  • Republic of Ireland

  • Canada

  • South Africa

 

Those are the key ‘broad’ markets where you'll find NES TEFL candidates.  The segments would include universities and other areas where you think you could find new teacher trainees.

What We're Looking For

Our ideal recruiter will have the following skills and/or background.

 

  • Previous sales and marketing experience.

  • Social media savvy

  • Methodical in your approach.

  • Have current access to key markets through organizations or institutions like universities.

  • Or other skills/attributes you think would make you successful.
