Christian Teachers for Thailand


Teachers being blessed by priests.The Church of Christ Thailand have signed a memorandum of understanding to recruit English teachers from the Nagaland Mission Movement based in northern India.

According to CCT the need for English teachers is paramount. To overcome the shortage they will hire teachers based on 3 main criteria:
