Some expatriate teachers who are currently teaching at local government schools in Hong Kong on the NET scheme have set up the Native English Speaking Teachers’ Association (NESTA). This association serves a number of NET teachers (mainly Secondary teachers) in Hong Kong.  NESTA's website provides information on teaching and living in Hong Kong as an expatriate teacher, FAQs, news on social events for teachers, etc.

The Primary Native English Teacher (PNET) website serves mainly Primary NET teachers, some of whom are New Zealanders.  The PNET site enables NET teachers to share information and access resources online. Its Guest section allows anyone to post and pass on information or make requests for assistance.

There are some other opportunities to teach English as a foreign language at institutions other than local schools. The British Council recruits English teachers with specific teaching qualifications and experience for its various courses for non-English speaking students. Please contact The English Language Centre of The British Council in Hong Kong for details.

Please visit the page Setting Up in Hong Kong for information on work visas and the online "NET Teacher Survival Guide" for more practical information and other useful links.
