NTK has a dynamic workforce – we value experience just as much as we value fresh graduates who are enthusiastic, committed, and willing to take on challenges. To uphold the outstanding quality of our team, we invest time and resources in training our staff in professional development.
Regular training is provided for teaching staff to enhance their knowledge and skills in lesson planning, classroom management, and teaching pedagogy. Training by teaching professionals, academic workshops, and assessment opportunities will be provided. The faculty will continuously explore and enhance teaching methods that are reflective of international best-practice.
As part of an international team, you will have the opportunity to gain valuable exposure in an intellectually stimulating environment that allows individuals to develop to their full potential.
I joined NTK as a teacher in 1998, when the company was still a very small outfit. Over the years, I have witnessed NTK grow, from very modest beginnings in the late nineties to the major operation it is now. NTK now has more than ten times the number of teachers than when I joined and training is much more systematized.
At NTK, you are expected to work to a high standard but within that you are allowed a lot of freedom to develop your own style. My colleagues are excellent and it is humbling that I, a non-native Hong Konger, have never met with the slightest negativity.
What I enjoy about working at NTK is the working hours: working in the afternoon through to the evening means I miss the rush hour (perhaps crush hour is more appropriate!) and I can get up a bit later in the mornings. More seriously, I like the teaching. I get to teach an enormous variety of mathematics: US system, UK system, local HK system, and others. Teaching individuals and small classes enables me to build-up a rapport with students that would be difficult, or impossible, to do with typical school class sizes.
At NTK, we have many top caliber students and both they and their parents have high expectations of our services. You must know your specialist subject well and want to share your knowledge with others. Allied to this, we have on-going quality control systems to ensure the best teaching practices so you must be the kind of person who wants honest and considered feedback on your teaching as part of your professional development. The experience that long-term teachers and heads of departments have obtained has been distilled and is being used to make the teacher training journey a much more focused one.
