Berkeley is an equal opportunity employer. We do not discriminate based on nationality or race. We do require that our homeroom and core academic teachers are native English speakers. All applicants for a teaching position at Berkeley International School must have at least a teaching degree and/or a degree specific to the subject for which they are applying. These are requirements that a foreign national wishing to work as teacher in Thailand must fulfill in order to obtain a work permit. Berkeley accepts up to 8 years of experience for placement on our salary schedule. There is a pay differential assigned to the attainment of a Master's Degree.
