Volunteer delivering lesson.
Ready made lessons with velcro allow great flexibility and involvement.

Registered Thai Charity and winner of Thailand's Green Award for Excellence 2015. Twice winner of the iStudy Global Award, 2017 & 2018.

We have a library of ready-made, visual lessons that match the Thai National Curriculum, so you can teach with confidence. We help in schools that cannot afford to hire English speaking teachers.

Volunteers go by taxi, to schools in the area. You will teach in teams with everything prepared for your lessons. You can go into a school confident that you are delivering relevant lessons.
This work is even more vital as the children have missed a great deal of schooling. Schools closed due to Covid and the children were told to study on-line. All good IF they have computers at home, but they don't.

Among the benefits reported by headmasters, "...the volunteers give the children much more confidence in speaking English." "The children love the volunteers' lessons. They are now hungry for English."

We are in Khao Lak, 50 miles north of Phuket. Taxi to bring you from the airport costs 30$.

You can choose your own accommodation from clean dormitory - 5$ - to hotel room with air con and private bathroom 30$ a night. Khao Lak is a family tourist resort area, with everything from doctors to supermarkets to bars and restaurants.

About Volunteer Teacher Thailand


Moo 7, Khao Lak., Khuek Khak, Takuapa, Phang Nga 82190, TH

Mission Statement

To provide free English speaking volunteers in poorer government schools. To provide the volunteers with full support to enable them to teach effectively; to provide them with the curriculum and prepared lessons; to provide transport to the schools and a liason officer to interact between the volunteers and the schools.


Volunteer Teacher Thailand (VTT) came from the work of the inspirational Tsunami Volunteer Center. We teach English in poorer schools in villages on the Andaman Coast. We charge a registration fee of $111. We do not charge the schools for any expenses. We provide transport and all materials for the classes.

VTT is run by a UK teacher who uses the Thai schools’ curricula. Lessons have been made to match the curriculum. This means the volunteers brings added value to the work of the schools in a systematic way. You don't need teaching experience, a teacher has made your lessons.

Volunteers can choose their own accommodation from our list - from $5 dorm to $20 a/c with bathroom. Airport pickup $30.

Volunteer Teachers have been awarded the TOURISM of THAILAND'S GREEN EXCELLENCE AWARD for the best volunteer project.

The award was presented by Her Royal Highness Princess Ubolratana.

VTT has also won the iStudy Global Award for the best volunteer programme for 2017 and 2018.

We do not have a volunteer house, nor do we hold mandatory team building dinners. We regard our volunteers as being capable and independent people.
We do provide an orientation giving insights into classroom management and Thai culture.

We are pledged to protect children and are signatories to The Code, requiring us to ask each volunteer for a police record check.
