The Chatteris Educational Foundation is a registered charity in Hong Kong established in 1990.
Our mission is to help Hong Kong students improve their English, particularly those from less privileged backgrounds and in the last 10 years we have successfully placed over 600 graduates in schools.

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, 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. We also provide further opportunities in project management, career development and community work.
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 developing a lasting insight into Hong Kong and Chinese culture and forming lifelong friendships with a team of international CNETs.
