I Can Read is a large literacy-based learning organisation which has operated for over 19 years in multiple countries. We specialise in the teaching of English literacy skills in addition to other important areas of child development, such as cognitive and social skills.
We currently have 24 centres in Thailand with more planned to open soon.
Successful applicants will be required to teach reading, writing, speaking and listening skills using the specially-developed I Can Read System. Most I Can Read students are aged between three and twelve. Applicants must be comfortable with teaching young children.
We are seeking qualified applicants for immediate full-time (5 days per week - 3 weekdays plus Saturday and Sunday) positions at our centres at Mega Bang Na, The Walk Kaset-Nawamin and The Walk Ratchapruek. Only suitably-qualified native-speaking applicants will be considered for these roles.
Furthermore, we are seeking part-time (Saturdays) teachers for our centres at The Walk Ratchapruek (Bangkok), Central Pinklao (Bangkok), Central Salaya (Bangkok Metropolitan Area - near Mahidol University) and Sriracha (Chonburi Province). Some other part-time and relief teaching roles may also be available in the Bangkok Metropolitan Area. Please see our other advertisement on this site if you are interested in these positions.
Applicants must complete the I Can Read training programme in Bangkok before they can commence work. I Can Read teachers are required to apply the methods learned during their training in their classes and observations will be conducted to assist teachers with delivering the programmes correctly.
