    Anyone had dealings with the Office of Higher Education Commission?

    Currently dealing with these folks as part of getting my Thai teaching license here. School are helpful in the paperwork process, which is great. However, they apparently need a high school diploma. As a Brit, we get exam board certificates, which I assume will be fine...I hope. I am wondering if they need to be attested? I have quite a few and it would be a bit pricey, so only want to start the process if absolutely necessary. All my other degrees and certificates are good to go.

    Apologies in advance for the utterly boring thread.

    Does your school know the answer?

    They are sure about most things, but the attestation for high school is something they will need to research I guess. None of this in Mongolia, which is making me think.

    I've never heard of your high school being checked.

    Its an international school. Hence I would not worry about your qualifications. They are legit just get it organized. It would seem the school should be more helpful and know about your situation. All UK teachers would have the same problems.

    Should be. Relax until there's word back stating otherwise.

    I'd imagine that you've got British colleagues/friends/acquaintances that went through the process and would remember if they had to get their high school board certificate re-proof-erizeded or not.

    I was asked for my university degree, which had to be sealed in its original envelope, my other teaching credentials and proof of professional development. (The cpd part might just be renewal though).

    It might as well be me offering advice about surfing.

    Right.

    So they're looking at courses attended and completed rather than weekly INSETT sessions.

    Easy enough to prove.
