Teacher Training in Thailand
This project will provide opportunities for local community members to gain valuable English skills which they can use for personal and community development. Ao luk is a growing town and tourism is ever increasing. Locals who can speak English have much better career opportunities.
In Krabi, English skills open up doors for people in the local tourist and business industries as well as numerous other educational and professional opportunities. As Thai teachers lack English skills they rely on foreign English teachers in schools. By providing Thai teachers with assistance, training and professional development we can help Thai teachers provide quality language classes for students on their own, breaking the cycle of reliance on expensive foreign teachers.
Without this project rural schools throughout Ao Luk would be without teachers to provide them with quality English language training. By donating just a small amount you can help support professional development for local teachers working in rural schools.
Training workshops will provide Thai teachers with opportunities to improve their English skills and provide professional development, teaching innovative new teaching techniques and activities to use in the classroom. GVI Thailand will provide native speaking teaching assistants, offer English classes outside school hours and hold specialised workshops throughout the year. Thai teachers will be invited to design and participate in English camps with TEFL trained English teaching volunteers to encourage them to run better English classes autonomously in the future.
By providing schools with continuous quality English teachers, we will improve students future education and career opportunities. Local teachers will also be exposed to new English language teaching methods which in turn will help them improve their own teaching skills. Local teachers will be able to continue providing a high quality of English to students who will in time be able to pass on their skills to future generations, eventually cutting the need for outside assistance.
