if you are serious about coming do a CELTA for a month and then do a PGDE in English for a year.

That will a) potentially get you a place on the NET scheme and b) open many more doors for international schools.

Seriously though? I wouldn't bother.....many nicer cities to go to.

Did you get onto NET with only an online TEFL?


Yes, I did.

120hrs of e-mailing as you put it. I checked the course with the EdB before signing up for it and it was one that they accepted.


Which TEFL course did you do? I'm just curious as I have an online TEFL and I'd like to apply to NET Smile


I emailed the EdB about online courses, just to check. I'm doing a course through the same place - teflonline.com. Their answer....

"Thank you for your interest in our NET Scheme.

Pleae kindly note that purely online course is not acceptable as a teaching practicum component is required. For further details regarding our requirement on TEFL/TESL certificate or diploma qualification, please refer to the following links:

TEFL/TESL qualification at Certificate level: http://www.edb.gov.hk/attachment/en/sch-admin/admin/about-sch-staff/net-scheme/tefl-tesl%20qualification%20for%20pnets.pdf
TEFL/TESL qualification at Diploma level: http://www.edb.gov.hk/attachment/en/sch-admin/admin/about-sch-staff/net-scheme/tefl-tesl%20qualification%20for%20snets.pdf

Regards,

NET Administration Team
Education Bureau
HKSAR Government"

I'm not saying that you didn't get onto the course with that TEFL cert, just that it may be more difficult / impossible to do so now, according to the NET team. Don't want other people applying under false hopes.

Bummer!

www.teflonline.com actually offers a guided teaching practicum. It's not offered on their website so you have to call them to register. You need to have a school, mentor and a qualified teacher to observe. It equates to a 40 hour certificate that the EdB accepts.
