Salary and Benefits – Teaching Jobs in Hong Kong

As China's window to the West, Hong Kong is a unique place with plenty to offer to foreign workers. With a 98% Chinese population, you can enjoy the authenticity of China mixed with Western and multi-Asian elements brought to Hong Kong by years of foreign influences.

In Hong Kong, English and Cantonese are the official languages, with Mandarin (the official language in China) on the rise. However, even though English is one of the official languages, there is still a considerable need for English language training in schools.

Teach Away offers two year placements in Hong Kong for candidates with previous teaching experience. Teachers work within the Hong Kong public school system and are often accompanied by a local teacher in the classroom. The Native-Speaking English Teacher (NET) scheme in Hong Kong requires teachers to have completed their teaching certification. Successful candidates will enjoy lucrative benefits.
