Why Entrust TEFL should be your first choice for Teaching Abroad?
Entrust TEFL is a professional teacher training college located in Thailand.

Entrust TEFL is unique as we accept both Degree holders and non-degree holders for our training courses. We also accept both native English passport holders and non-native English passport holders. TEFL in Thailand course is the best possible way to get started.
Most TEFL or TESOL companies in Thailand (or Asia) only accept Native English passport holders with a bachelor's degree. Then offer them assisted or no job placement upon completion of the course. The reason for this is normally because they are just a website with a training partner in Thailand.
The other TEFL or TESOL companies are unsure of the rules and regulations of the employment of teachers in Thailand. So, they cannot offer any guarantees on employment after the training.
Entrust TEFL has over 20 years of teacher recruitment experience within Thailand. We have placed over 6,500 graduates in Teaching jobs upon completion of the course and currently have a 100% success rate. Getting a paying teaching position after the course is guaranteed, regardless of your nationality or educational background. Entrust is one of the best TEFL certification programs (or TESOL courses) in Thailand.
We offer Guaranteed job placement directly after the completion of the course to native English speakers holding a degree. And., we offer Assistance job placement to non-native, non-degree holders. Normally Assisted placement happens much like Guaranteed placement, but it may take up to 2-weeks to find a suitable placement.

Our TEFL Training Locations
We currently have three training locations, Chiang Mai, Krabi, and Pattaya.
The Chiang Mai training location is situated in Northern Thailand surrounded by lush jungles. Chiang Mai is the second-largest city in Thailand. Chiang Mai is our most popular training location for its low cost of living during the course. On the weekends the Chiang Mai TEFL students enjoy white water rafting, waterfall hikes, and visiting elephant sanctuaries.
The Krabi training location is situated in the Andaman Sea amongst over 200 sun-drenched islands and white sandy beaches. Krabi is popular with couples joining the TEFL certification course and planning to teach together in Thailand. Krabi is popular with beach lovers that enjoy crystal clear waters and snorkeling. Our Krabi training center is located in Krabi town within minutes to the water and easy access to the islands.
The Pattaya training location is our newest training location. Pattaya is a seaside resort town just south of Bangkok and popular with our younger TEFL students. The Pattaya TEFL training center is the highest cost of living during the training as it is very western. Our TEFL students normally spend their evenings out on walking streets and nightclubbing.

Entrust TEFL is fully accredited externally by the World TEFL Accrediting Commission in New York, United States of America. It is important to gain external and independent accreditation by an outside body whose only function is the accreditation of educational bodies. Most TEFL or TESOL companies seek accreditation from other TEFL or TESOL companies, basically agreeing to grant each other accreditation rather than going through the proper steps, and some purchase a lesser online accreditation for $49 with no questions asked. Having proper and legitimate accreditation ensures that what you are learning during the course is relevant and your completion certificate will be truly accepted by recruiters worldwide.
Entrust TEFL is also a fully registered Education company with three permanent locations within Thailand. Being a fully registered company means that our staff is working legally, we pay taxes on our income, are fully bonded, are subject to laws and regulations. Choosing a TEFL or TESOL provider that holds a company registration provides a degree of legitimacy and peace of mind. Most TEFL or TESOL companies in Thailand are merely websites, with no company registration, no physical or secret training locations, staff working illegally, and very little recourse for you the consumer if they just disappear and change their name and website as they have no physical legitimacy.
Entrust TEFL is fully licensed by the Ministry of Education and Teachers Council of Thailand to conduct TEFL teacher training and certification. We are also ISO certified, which is an international certification that allows us to legally certify our graduates and have those documents recognized by recruiters worldwide. Educational licensing is important as just as in any country worldwide the school, college, or university is licensed, regulated, and monitored by the relevant educational and governmental bodies to ensure that professional standards are being met and maintained.

Entrust TEFL has been privileged and honored to have won so many educational awards for its teacher training programs in Thailand. The most directly reflectent to our training was the "The Best TEFL provider" awarded by the Ministry of Education. To date, we are the only teacher training company (TEFL, TESOL, CELTA) in Thailand to receive this award. The rationale was to determine which company provided the best overall trained teachers to schools in Thailand.
The Ministry of Education simply asked this question to Thai schools nationwide and their response was Entrust TEFL. The schools found that our TEFL graduates required little to no additional training upon arrival and arrived ready to teach.
