Thailand’s Education Ministry plans to hire 30,000 retired teachers or experts to work as volunteer instructors, delivering skill training and special education.

This effort is part of the government’s third phase of the aging society operation plan, which aims to assist the elderly remain happy after retirement while their potential may be used to promote the potential of individuals of other ages.

The project, according to Deputy Government Spokesperson Trisulee Trisaranakul, will be available to retired teachers and retired specialists from around the country. The applications will be processed using an online system, and the Education Ministry will shortly post project specifics on its website. The initiative would be carried out in collaboration with the Labor Ministry, the Ministry of Social Development and Human Security, and the Ministry of the Interior.

Retirees would be appointed as volunteer teachers to assist schools, teachers, parents, communities, and other stakeholders. Several of them would teach job skills to communities or workers as part of Labour Ministry programmes.

Trisulee emphasized the necessity of carrying out the operation plan, noting that Thailand became an aging society last year, with the senior citizen population predicted to climb to 28% of the total population in 11 years. This initiative will not only provide education and training for the elderly, but it will also assist them in remaining involved and active in society, which is critical for their well-being.

The third phase of operations is scheduled to begin this year and last until 2037. The initiative of the Education Ministry is one of the steps made by the Thai government to address the issues of an aging society.
