Where can graduate teachers find ESL teaching opportunities in Hong Kong?
Talented ESL teachers are greatly sought after in both local schools and international schools in Hong Kong. While there are schools which directly employ their own NETs, a large number of institutions recruit NETs through agencies.
Overseas ESL job seekers and inexperienced ESL teachers are advised to seek help from a well-established agency that offers work visa sponsorship, sufficient placement support and career advice.
Graduate teachers tend to find more opportunities in the following types of institutions:
– Kindergartens/Nurseries (for students from 2 to 5 years old)
– Primary schools (for students from 6-11 years old)
– Secondary schools (for students from 12- 18 years old)
– Privately-owned and commercially operated learning centres (for students from various age groups)
