Chatteris Native-speaking English Tutor (CNET)
CNETs being sponsored through Chatteris will take part in the Chatteris International Graduate Programme. Through this programme, CNETs will be working in collaboration with their school and Chatteris to develop fun and interactive ways of improving students’ English through lessons, various English programmes and extra-curricular activities. As a CNET, you will be placed full time in a local school allowing you to make a real difference in the lives and learning experience of the Chinese school children you work with. You will also have the opportunity to develop a lasting insight into the Hong Kong and Chinese culture and to form lifelong international friendships with the team of CNETs working alongside you. Chatteris organizes regular monthly cultural and social activities such as Chinese medicine seminars, Cantonese Lessons and Tai Chi to help bring cultures and people together.
Teaching in a school environment is a challenging and rewarding experience and will develop many transferable skills; such as confidence, flexibility, leadership and communication. We aim to help every CNET make the most out of their time in Hong Kong and successful applicants will be excited by the prospect of working for a NGO on a more personal level. By working closely with the Project Management Team and the other CNETs, you will have a real input into the future of the organisation and extra opportunities to develop your skills (and CV!)
With up to 30 days holiday during your contract, there are also ample opportunities to travel China and Asia.
