Teach Away Inc. has been officially selected by the Government of Hong Kong's Education Bureau to supply Native-speaking English Teachers (NETs) for primary schools across Hong Kong. We’re seeking applications from enthusiastic and motivated English language teachers to join the popular NET program at public schools across Hong Kong.
Successful candidates will be teaching students in government-run primary schools and secondary schools with the aim of strengthening English language learning and teaching in the region and assisting with teaching and curriculum development. The NET scheme aims to support and strengthen English language learning and teaching in Hong Kong.
The main goals of the schemes are to:

- Develop children’s interest in learning English and establish the foundation for lifelong learning
- Help local teachers develop innovative learning and teaching methods, materials, curricula and activities suited to the needs of local children
- Disseminate good practices in language learning and teaching through region-based teacher development programmes such as experience-sharing seminars/workshops and networking activities.
The duties of a primary native English teacher in Hong Kong include classroom teaching, assisting with professional development of local teachers, and working within the school community.
