Life after monkeytree
What other career opportunities are available in Hong Kong?
Hong Kong is a world of opportunities. We've had teachers go on to work in real estate, investment and financial services, and a great number of our former teachers have moved on to work at the British Council, the NET Scheme, International schools, public schools, and universities in Hong Kong. Your experience at Monkey Tree provides you with some of the work experience that is often required for these jobs, and your qualifications and reference letter will help you to land other great jobs in the region.
Do people typically stay in Hong Kong after working with Monkey Tree?
It’s difficult to say as it’s not always possible to stay in touch with every teacher once they’ve departed Monkey Tree. However, our estimation is that approximately 60% of teachers either stay in Hong Kong, or plan to come back after a short trip.
What do people typically do when they leave Monkey Tree but stay in Hong Kong?
Naturally, many of our former teachers go into teaching at kindergartens, schools, or even at universities. However, a great number of our them also go on to study at the local universities, or move onto completely different career paths, such as coaching sports, working in the financial sector, and starting their own businesses.
How does Monkey Tree help me in my career path?
Other than the experience you’ll gain as a teacher, Monkey Tree also periodically offers to subsidize a trinity CertTESOL program in Hong Kong for current teachers as a career development program in order to help them improve their teaching qualifications, teaching quality, and future job prospects.
