Trip overview

Can you imagine having 1400 tropical islands as your home away from home? Not just any islands, either. 

We’re talking islands covered in picture perfect palm-lined beaches to relax on, infamous Full Moon Parties to dance the night away at, tropical jungles filled with exotic animals, beach weather all-year round, low cost of living, the feeling of freedom as you explore,  world-famous food, friendly people….

You’re going to need some time and freedom to explore all these islands. And what better way than to get your internationally recognised TESOL qualification in Thailand while you acclimatise to your new home. And when you’re done – you can go on to land a teaching position at one of our in-country partners spread around the country. 

Thailand is a popular place for travellers. Which means you’ll get all this and much more – without sacrificing the creature comforts of home. 

It also means you’ll meet loads of other people on a similar adventure to yours – even if you’re travelling solo. 

Travellers who’re also revelling in the freedom that comes with exploring Thailand. 

But this isn’t only an adventure full of fun. It’s also an opportunity for you to get a professional certification that gives you a meaningful occupation. With a local income that will help you fund your travels and live comfortably. 

You’ll enjoy plenty of job security because there are loads of people out there who can’t speak English but want, and need, to learn it.  

But – there are also loads of English speakers chasing the dream of living abroad while teaching English. Since 97% of people pass their TESOL – competition for these positions can be fierce. 

Which is why we keep our intake groups small. That way we can give you the attention you need to become a paid English teacher in Thailand as quickly and easily as possible. 

And here’s the best part: Over 95% of Global Travellers are placed in teaching positions within a fortnight of passing their TESOL. We help you land interviews at language institutes across Thailand before you finish your course or soon thereafter.

We offer the complete & best package for teaching overseas. Our team will help you with the essentials you need to start your new journey with a bang! Including helping you find accommodation, visa assistance, bank account setup, a range of exciting cultural activities, and so much more. 

You could do this by yourself and leave a lot to chance. It will take much longer and you’ll be competing with every other traveller trying to live the life of an English teacher.  

Or you could let us take care of the essentials so you can focus on living your best life. 

If you want to gain international work & travel experience with a lifetime of job security – a TESOL qualification is the way to go. 

If you want to live in paradise – Thailand is the place to be. 

If you want to live in Thailand while you’re getting your TESOL, with the option to stay on at a paid teaching position, book today!

Trip details

Our Teach English trips are designed to get you set up in your new life overseas as smoothly as possible. Our goal is to save you time, money, and stress while eliminating the risk of returning home early. Here’s how we do it:

We’re on your side from the moment you get started. You’ll be assigned a Dedicated Trip Coordinator to guide you through the next steps and answer all your questions. Our team is well travelled so you can learn from our experience. 

Your Personal Travel Concierge will help with flights, insurance, visas, and any add-ons you’d like for your trip. These are real humans too – no robots here. 

Once you land in Thailand our local team will be waiting for you at the airport. After a night in Bangkok for your first in-country orientation you’ll be transported to your twin-share accommodation in Hua Hin – your home for the next 4 weeks (or longer if you wish). 

Hua Hin is where you’ll be taking your TESOL course. It’s also where you’ll enjoy a wide range of local activities and excursions included in your trip along with your new teacher friends. 

These activities include a Muay Thai class to impress your friends back home, visit to a local street dog rescue & rehabilitation volunteer project in case you want to adopt your new best friend, visit to a nearby Thai market and traditional Thai cooking class for when you’re courting that special someone, and a beach BBQ where you’ll meet your fellow teachers. 

More often than not, people are offered a paid teaching position before they even finish their course. In the rare cases this doesn’t happen – as long as you graduated from your TESOL –  our local partners won’t stop until you have a paid teaching position confirmed. 

But our support doesn’t end there. We’ll be in touch during your trip to make sure everything is going smoothly. If you have any questions or concerns we’re one quick message, DM, email, or carrier pigeon away. 

And if there’s an emergency, you can use our 24/7 emergency support lines for anything urgent. 

We’re with you every step of the way. 


This trip requires a Bachelor’s degree in any field. You’ll also need a laptop to help with your classroom duties.

What extra costs will I have? 

Flights, travel insurance, visa, criminal background check, souvenirs & spending money.

Trip itinerary


When you arrive at Suvarnabhumi International Airport, your private transfer (included with your trip) will take you to your accommodation in Bangkok for your first night, or straight to Hua Hin. This is where you’ll get your first in-country orientation and be introduced to the other teachers.  

Week 1-4

You’ll be taken to your twin-share accommodation in Hua Hin where you’ll begin your 4-week TESOL course.  During this time you’ll experience the cultural orientation activities planned, including:  Muay Thai class Volunteering at Rescue Paws – a street dog rescue & rehabilitation project Tour of a local mountain-top temple Visit a Thai market and learn how to use your ingredients in a traditional Thai cooking class Your orientation will end with a beach barbecue with all your fellow teachers.


Most people are offered a local teaching contract before they’ve even finished their TESOL course. If this doesn’t happen to you (unlikely) our local partner won’t stop until you’ve got one. Each teaching position is different – so how your life will look is different for everyone.  Most teachers receive unpaid time off during the March, April, and October school holidays. This is the perfect opportunity to use that salary you’ve been saving up to explore the island paradise of your new home.  You can party at Thailand’s infamous Full Moon Parties, explore luscious jungles and tropical beaches, or hop on a quick flight to your choice of incredible destinations on your doorstep.  We’ll be in touch with you throughout your stay. If you ever need advice or support our team is available to answer your questions. And our 24/7 emergency support line will help with urgent matters.  Don’t go alone. Go with Global.

Andrea S
Fantastic welcome and introduction from Rachel on all aspects of teacher training and work placement in Thailand. I'm in and looking forward to an amazing life experience.
Jesse B
Dealing with Sam so far has been a very positive experience. He has been very helpful, mindful and professional in my opinion. He has given me more than answers to my questions. Thank you!
Seonaid V
Overall a good experience so far with lots of help, information and support from Kerry when needed. Looking forward to our trip!
Harry H
Just would like to write a few words about my recent booking experience with Kerrie. I would like to feedback that she was absolutely wonderful when arranging anything for my teaching trip. Very professional yet personable service, and would recommend happily even just purely based on her customer service.
Kimberley B
I would highly recommend Global to anybody that is looking to travel and work or volunteer in a county that is not their own. I cannot give high enough praises for how much they have helped me so far and I still have 7 months until my trip. Kerrie has been my trip coordinator for the past few months and I couldn't be more grateful for all the help and information she has given me. She has given me a call once a month to make sure I am OK and if I have everything on track. I appreciate this as I don't feel like I have to struggle on my own. She has answered any questions and given me great information. I feel more at ease about my trip more and more each day. A big thank you once again.

Why should I book now?

Covid-19 threw us a curve ball and pretty much halted all travel. This means that we have a backlog of travellers, just like you, who are desperate to get out and explore the world! Global Work & Travel works on a first-in-best-dressed basis. Booking earlier ensures that you don’t miss out on the best intake, season, placements and more! We recommend our travellers take 6-12 months to plan their trip for a reason - to make sure you’ve got everything organised perfectly, stress-free.

As a Global Traveller you’ll get exclusive access to gWorld, our personalised app where you can keep all of your important documents and trip details in one spot and gain insider access to everything Global. This is where you will find exclusive Marketplace Deals, a unique social network to connect you with other like-minded Global Travellers, access to our Academy with an ever-growing range of skills & languages, and so much more.

Why not give yourself something to look forward to by booking that trip!

Can I travel with a friend?

Yes you can! Simply tell your Trip Coordinator after booking that your friend is also going and they can link your profiles. For most of our trips we should be able to have you and your friends placed together or nearby. Meaning that you can live, work, play & travel together!

But wait there's more! Not only can you travel the world with your besties at your side, you can also earn some extra cash towards your own trip just by referring your friends to Global Work & Travel. You can learn more about the great referral rewards program inside your gWorld account once you join.

And for those who decide to go-it-solo, we’ve made it easier to meet other Global Travellers in the same region as you. Just like any other social platform, you’ll be able to interact, share, chat and meet with some really cool people who are doing trips just like you!

What happens if COVID affects my trip?

If you have to make any changes to your departure date, you’re protected with our Lifetime Deposit Guarantee and our Ultimate Corona Booking Flexibility. With this, we will change your trip dates for free. If this doesn’t fit around you and you can’t go on your trip anymore, we will give you a 100% refund in the form of a Trip Credit with us (See terms). If you’re unable to use it, you can also transfer that credit to someone else for them to put towards any trip too.

If you’re affected by Covid-19 while you’re overseas, you will have all the support you need from our team or partners in-country as well as have access to our 24/7 Global Emergency Line. We recommend travellers purchase Global Travel Cover travel insurance that provides Covid-19 medical protection too.

Do I need to be vaccinated to book?

As border restrictions for countries begin to ease, being fully vaccinated will maximise the number of locations you can visit. So while you are not legally required to be vaccinated, and it’s also not a requirement to travel with us, it will limit some of the countries that you can visit and may make it harder to travel through over the next 12-18 months. We highly recommend our travellers look at the current travel restrictions of their destination, speak with a medical professional or get in touch with our team for travel advice.

What happens if I want to cancel my trip?

Our Ultimate Corona Booking Flexibility means you can change your trip’s start date up to 84* days before departure without incurring any charges when you rebook it for any time (or even any other trip) in the next 2 years from your original start date.

In the event that you want to cancel your booking altogether, if you give us over 84* days notice you can do so with only a 50% cancellation fee. Your refund of the balance will come in the form of a Store Credit which you can put towards booking absolutely anything travel related with your Travel Concierge within the next 2 years!

*Some select trips excluded, including Teach (Spain, Italy & Czech Republic) and USA (Summer Camp, Working Holiday and Hotel Professional), and others as listed in Booking Conditions.
