Travel & Teach - Hong Kong

Travel and Teach

There is huge demand for teachers in Hong Kong and a rich and vibrant ESL sector which consists of ad-hoc conversation clubs, more established private language schools and primary/secondary school placements via the government backed NET scheme. It is possible to secure work before you go and this is advised if you are new to Hong Kong since it is an expensive city to arrive in with no work. Employers and schools should help with visa. You will need a degree, be a native English speaker preferably, although the NET scheme is open to near-native speakers. For better paid jobs, experience is required.

Most one-year NET primary contracts will pay anywhere from 20,000 - 40,000 HKD p/a. There is often an end of contract bonus in addition and those living outside HK will benefit from a monthly cash living allowance. Therefore candidates can to live quite well and save money. The NET scheme also offers a salary in excess of this plus passage, baggage allowance, medical and extra bonus payments. Other schools won't be quite so generous, but you can still live well here and working privately is often paid at 200 - 400 HKD per hour, depending on who you are teaching and your experience. Recruitment for teachers in Hong Kong takes place year round with the exception of Chinese New Year (January/February).

Global English's 100-hour Teach Hong Kong course includes 10 hours observed teaching practice and a 20-hour kindergarten and primary learners component. Candidates have been accepted by the Hong Kong Bureau of Education with this course for primary teaching and we have many graduates working under the NET scheme.
