Q: What advice do you have to help to get a teaching job in Shenzen or Hong Kong?

What advice do you have to help to get a teaching job in Shenzen or Hong kong? I have a degree in IT, a CELT certificate with 6 hours of teaching practice to adults, I am a native English speaker and I have some certificates in Art. I have applied to the Hong Kong NET scheme and I have had an interview for the primary school teacher for the NET scheme. They expect to have about a 100 vacancies for the NET scheme. All advice welcome on how to get that first teaching job. Thanks.

In Hong Kong, the requirements to be an English teacher are MUCH more strict than in the Mainland.

I will hear about whether I have been selected to be on the primary NET scheme in Hong Kong anyday now. I have applied to a couple of jobs so far without replies so far.

I recommend to you to start as a regular teacher in China and to expect to gain more experience, so other employers like you in the future. Hope I could help

You could probably find a Shenzhen job easily enough if you search online.

 

Can't speak for HK, your asking two entirely different questions here.

Build your resume up and you can check out some teaching videos and get tips on how to teach. If you have a teaching certificate then that means you've done your training and you should be cut out to be a teacher. Just practice on perfecting your lessons. The more you practice the better you'll be at it. Remember recognition is always important for students if you don't recognize them in some way they won't feel comfortable. Always start your class with roll call so the student has a sense of belonging there.

Hong Kong? They will be much more demanding of your qualifications than Mainland China.

In order to teach in proper schools in HK, they will require the teachers to have a education degree and certain years of experiences as far as i know. But you could easily get a job in some of those smaller language schools.

Shenzhen would be so easy to get a teaching since no foreigner is willing to live there, the demands are high.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
