Teach English
in paradise

Increasing the English-language proficiency of children all over Thailand and enhancing the employment prospects of the next generation.

Thailand's most-ambitious ever English education programme

The nationwide scheme, initiated and endorsed by the Ministry of Education, falls under the remit of a charitable organisation. Funded by international corporations, we utilise the skills, resources and expertise of Thailand’s private sector and international schools to work with Thailand’s 1,246 magnet schools. Magnet schools are public education schools that provide innovative curriculum and teaching methods to their pupils. As a central hub, they offer the perfect opportunity for us to provide training and resources that will benefit the children, staff, connecting feeder schools and wider community. We see this structure, with the private sector providing core infrastructural support and funding, as essential to ensuring the long-term success of the initiative and protecting it from any political ambitions.
