Posting a new thread here in the Work permit section as many 'No degree' teachers lack this vital book to stay on a smooth track in Thailand. Now, as the title suggests: 'What are the options for foreigners in Thailand without a degree to be able to stay and work here legally as a teacher?' Yes, there are some (and would be great to hear from those with this experience) who are here legally without a bonified degree. Thanks in advance to anyone willing to share with a personal pseudonym story as to gaining a work permit without a degree. From what I know: It is possible to obtain a WP as a 'Teacher Assistant' (but I'm not sure what that actually entails and if you have knowledge on this matter please enlighten us in this thread) and that some of the poorer schools (especially in the North-East) can argue a case to Khuruspaha that an individual is worthy of at least a teacher license waiver based on a school's need for a said individual combined with the lack of being able to pay a wage to attract a teacher with at least the required minimim of 'a degree'. Furthermore, there are many jobs outside the scope of Khurusapha too and what options, if any, do you know of? (e.g. Corporate work, Language schools?) I am posting this on behalf of a few teachers that I know of in this predicament (not me I have a degree) and would really appreciate some constructive comments that are within the realm of the law. Yes, this may have been discussed on 'other forums' but I don't think this has been discussed specifically to this matter here on Thailand Teaching. Please don't suggest Khao San road degrees or likewise nor get on an elitist high-horse about this subject ... if you know something and can share it then please do. Thanks in advance and Thailand Teaching in my opinion is about 'all teachers in Thailand' regardless of their qualifications, background, and experience. Many thanks to all those that can contribute addressing this issue and in a positive manner to this thread. GBG.
