Unlicensed teachers to tackle chronic shortage

The Education Ministry plans to allow degree holders who don't hold teaching licences to apply for jobs to teach science, technology, engineering and mathematics (so-called Stem courses) in state-run schools.

The scheme is designed to ease a chronic teacher shortage.
Traditionally, those who did not study education as a major could not be licensed to teach in state and private institutions, he said.

However, the Teachers Council of Thailand might waive that restriction and allow them to teach without a licence for only two years, he said.

Within that period, non-teaching degree teachers must join training programmes necessary to obtain a teaching licence.

"If they fail to obtain a teaching licence after two years, the Teachers Council might allow them to teach for four more years maximum.
