The program that makes up the majority of the students (over 3000 in three campuses) provides 50% of daily instruction in English. Schools are fully equipped with modern technology and have been designed as optimum learning environments for young students. Curriculum is based on Canadian and Thai standards in order to provide the best quality English instruction, while maintaining the high standards set by the Thai Ministry of Education. Lertlah is accredited by the Manitoba and Nova Scotia Ministries of Education and has links with the University of Manitoba, the University of Winnipeg, the University of Presque Isle (Maine).

Lertlah hires approximately 120 English speaking teachers/year to teach English at the Kindergarten, primary and middle school levels. Teachers work five days a week, with weekends and a variety of holidays off. Teachers may be asked to teach at any level, dependent on individual preference and educational background.
In the Immersion program, teachers have a homeroom class of between 15 and 20 students. They are responsible for teaching English language arts, science, math, and social studies.
In the English programs, teachers are responsible for two or more classes, dividing their time equally, and are responsible for English language arts, science and math. In the upper levels, subjects may be divided; one teacher may teach English at two levels.
Lertlah is currently hiring for the 2013/14 school year and beyond. Teachers will be hired for a one year contract, with the opportunity to stay longer if interested, following a brief probation period.
Airfare will be reimbursed to a maximum upon successful completion of the contract.
Qualifications for teachers vary by program. In the Immersion program, a BEd is required, while applicants will be reviewed on a case by case basis for the other programs. A Bachelor’s degree, is required for all teaching positions. All teachers should have an interest in teaching at the primary level, the ability to adapt to new cultures and ways of life, and a sense of adventure. Experience teaching, or working with children would also be an asset.
Lertlah welcomes couples and those with children.
