We firmly believe that effective English language instruction opens doors to academic and professional success, fostering active engagement in the global community. In Thailand, we recognise the vibrant community of dedicated teachers. Through our expansive online platform, “TeachingEnglish”,’ we provide Thai teachers with enriching opportunities and resources to improve the learning outcomes of their students, in cities and in rural areas.”

“We’re proud to introduce the Enabling Fund grants, aimed at encouraging Thai English teachers to connect with teaching communities around the world, and providing a wealth of resources and international community.” Mr. Danny added.

The initiative invites applications from established and active networks, clusters, associations, and other groups in the field of English teaching in Thai primary and secondary schools. We want to support teachers’ networks’ with free, online self-study courses (MOOCs) and webinars.
