CLOSING DATE: Ongoing but early application is advised
Chatteris Native-English speaking Tutor (CNET)

As a CNET, you will enrol in the Chatteris International Graduate Programme and  be placed full time in a local Hong Kong school to help improve the English language environment and motivate students to speak English. Within your school programme (primary, secondary or postsecondary) you will have the opportunity to plan and deliver fun and interactive English lessons and activities. Your role as a CNET encourages you to create an immersive and inspiring English language environment for students which complements the school’s curriculum, both in and out of the classroom.
Extensive support and training is provided throughout the year and additional opportunities are available to support those who would like assistance in bridging the gap from English tutor to a qualified TESOL teacher.
Teaching in a Hong Kong school is a challenging and rewarding experience. You will develop many valuable skills, such as confidence, flexibility, patience, communication and an appreciation of cultural diversity whilst having the opportunity to develop a lasting insight into Hong Kong and Chinese culture and forming lifelong friendships with the team of international CNETs working alongside you.
