Who we are

Chatteris Educational Foundation is a Hong Kong registered non-profit organisation established in 1990. We have grown steadily in terms of size, reach and professionalism since our founding, enabling us to strengthen our commitment to improving the English language standard of Hong Kong students.

Our vision

To empower Hong Kong students with enhanced English proficiency and intercultural understanding, enabling them to succeed in an increasingly globalised world.

Our mission

To raise the English proficiency and self-confidence of Hong Kong's young people, particularly the less privileged, through dynamic interaction with English-speaking university graduates working in creative partnership with schools.

What we do...

Every year, Chatteris places 70-80 international graduates, who are dedicated to working with young people,  to teach and run activities full-time in local primary, secondary and post secondary schools. Our graduates are fully integrated into the school system and provide vital, authentic English interaction to students. 

Chatteris recruits Chatteris Native-English Speaking Tutors (CNETs) internationally, particularly from the UK, USA and Canada. Our graduates are from a range of disciplines and backgrounds and make up a diverse team who share our passion for providing equal English language opportunities to all Hong Kong students. 

Chatteris and our CNETs take pride in the transformational difference that our programmes make in students’ lives. By enhancing students’ exposure to English, we open doors to opportunities in an increasingly globalised world where English is an essential tool.

How we do it...

Chatteris collaborates with schools and teaching staff across Hong Kong to raise the English language standards of local students. Chatteris provides extensive training throughout the year and works with CNETs to plan, create and teach fun, interactive and engaging English lessons and activities in order to enhance the English Language Learning Environment. 

All schools in our programmes have different needs and requirements and we work closely with both school and CNET throughout the year to maximise the delivery of the programme to students. The activities that we collaborate to deliver inspire students to speak English in an inclusive and dynamic environment, where their confidence and ability to speak English is greatly improved.
