We have an exciting opportunity for elementary and secondary English teachers looking to take their international teaching career to the next level!
Starting now, Teach Away is seeking applications from enthusiastic and motivated English language teachers to join the popular Native-speaking English Teacher (NET) Scheme at public schools across Hong Kong for a start date of August 2017. We’re looking to fill a large number of open teaching positions across Hong Kong’s 1,000+ government-run schools. While we also welcome applications from UK, Irish, South African, New Zealand and Australian teachers, please bear in mind that you’ll need to be available to travel for interviews in the US in late February/early March, 2017.
Successful candidates will be teaching students in primary and secondary public schools with the aim of strengthening English language learning and teaching in the region and assisting with teaching and curriculum development. Along with Chinese, English is one of Hong Kong’s two official languages and the NET Scheme has been an integral part of the public Hong Kong education system ever since its implementation in 1998.
Be sure to get your application in as soon as possible – NET teaching jobs are some of the most coveted international teaching opportunities and Hong Kong is one of the best teaching destinations on the map. NET teacher salaries are highly lucrative, ranging from $3,400 – $6,700 USD per month, along with additional retention bonuses. The perks of being a NET teacher are also incredible, including a monthly housing allowance and round-trip airfare reimbursement for successful candidates.
We’ve included a quick rundown of the candidate requirements for NET teaching positions below (multiple positions are available):
PNET (Primary Native-Speaking English Teacher) requirements
- Teaching license
- Bachelor’s degree in English
- TEFL/TESL certificate
SNET (Secondary Native-Speaking English Teacher) requirements
