The Education Ministry has warned education institutions across the country to be aware of unqualified English teachers having child sex abuse records in their home countries but coming to work in the country.
Dr Thirakiat said the UK embassy recently notified that some British citizens who have child sexual abuse records have disguised themselves as English teachers and have arrived in Thailand to work as teachers.
With such warning, he then urged all education institutions to carefully screen the qualification and records of those British citizens applying for English teaching job in the country.
He said all education institutes can either check records of all English applicants from the UK police’s website www.acro.police.uk/icpc, or ask the applicants for the job to produce certificate for check.
He said this would be a measure to screen the applicants and ensure that they have no criminal records, and prevent Thai students from sexual abuses by English teachers.
According to the UK embassy, people committed child sexual abuse crimes in the UK often look for jobs overseas such as volunteers. Many of them have been found to choose teaching or any profession that is relevant to child, he said.
Therefore he urged that all education institutions adopted careful steps in recruiting foreigners to work as English teachers.Facebook.
