Qualifications of CVT Volunteers

The Character, Training, and Experience of CVT Volunteers

Students at Jane Hays Memorial School

Volunteers who come to Thailand to serve should demonstrate a mature and active Christian faith and an exemplary moral lifestyle.  They should be in good health, emotionally mature, and open to learning about and living in other countries.

Those who wish to serve as English teachers should have a Bachelor’s Degree from an accredited college or university.

Those who wish to teach specific subject matter (math, science, etc.) need to have the commensurate degree. For example, those who wish to teach math should have a Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics. Those who wish to teach history should have a Bachelor’s Degree in History. Those who wish to teach elementary school students should have a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education.

Valid teaching certificates and TESOL (Teacher of English to Speakers of Other Languages) certificates are a plus.

No teaching experience is required, but CVT volunteers should have English as their first language (mother tongue) and speak English without a strong accent. They should be familiar with the rules of English grammar and be able to express themselves clearly in English.

A two-year commitment is desired.
