Thailand’s Institution for the Promotion of Teaching of Science and Technology (an autonomous body under the Ministry of Education) has embarked on an ambitious 6-year scholarship programme to create over 3000 high-flying Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths teachers who will be able to teach through the medium of English.
The British Council is providing the English language and some of the classroom methodology components of the scholarship programme. In this 1st year, over 300 scholars are taking part in our initial intensive English courses in Bangkok, Khon Kaen, Chonburi and Nakhon Si Thammarat before embarking on Masters degrees in their chosen subjects followed by PGCE-style teaching qualifications, either in Thailand or overseas (including The UK).
Through both face-to-face and online English components, we aim to improve the base levels of English of scholarship participants. We look forward to supporting them on their journey towards the classroom over the next 2 years.
