    Did they confirm that they would accept that kind of online certificate? From what I know, there needs to be a practicum:

    Ah yes, the one I'm doing now is specifically for the Net Scheme. It falls under the fourth criteria 100 hours + 10 hours of teaching practice. If I knew about this in advance I would've done it back in October of last year.

    Specifically for it? There's such a thing? What's it called?

    Here is the Tefl I've taken. I'll hand it in to the EDB once I finish the teaching practice. I've read others have used it so fingers crossed I suppose. I can't afford to do the trinity cert tesol, and this seem to fall under the TEFL requirements from the EDB

    Interesting. These parts stood out for me though:

    "Combines accredited online training with a kindergarten/primary learner specialisation..."

    "It comprises an accredited 70 hour TESOL qualification with a specialist unit on teaching English to kindergarten and primary learners..."

    "Ideal if you:

    are applying to be a Native-speaking English Teacher (NET) for pre-school or primary education in Hong Kong"

    "This 100 hour course has been used by candidates to fulfill the TESOL criteria of the HK EDB for Primary NETs in 2017-2018."

    What about other years though? What about secondary since that's the school you've applied to?

    I know I sound skeptical, but have you confirmed with the EDB that this course will be accepted?

    No, I sent the EDB an e-mail and they said as long as it meets 100 hours and include ten hours of teaching practice. I'll update you if it goes well or not. I don't think the requirements for tesol has changed since 2017/2018. As for the SNET, I don't plan on using this TEFL for it. The EDB is working with my school to see what arrangements can be made if any. I mainly want the PNET as it's pretty much what I mastered in university.

    Staying in constant contact with an HK govt department beats 100 hours of TESOL any day of the week.

    Good luck on the job hunt - please report back on how it goes.
