I have a friend who is a teacher in the UK and is considering moving to HK to find work.
Obviously him and his wife have no work permits (having only visited HK once in the past) and have given me a long list of questions.
I was looking at the EMB government website for Native English Teachers (NET) Scheme advice and it suggested he has to be an English teacher or have a year's english teaching experience before he can apply (he is a science teacher).
I have spoken to some teachers here on the NET scheme and they have suggested this isn't actually a problem. I was also told you can apply and have the interview in the UK.
Has anyone here have any experience of all this? Also any ideas of what salary expectations he should have? Can his wife, once in HK, easily find a job (and hence work permit)?
He is a secondary school teacher in the UK with 2 years teaching experience (although he was a Civil Engineer before that). Given all that, is the NET scheme his best approach to securing employment in HK?
So many questions, sorry, but if you can shed any light on this very grateful as hours of looking at HK Govt websites have left me more than a little confused.
