We believe that kind-hearted support from your corporate will undoubtedly help make Teach4HK a successful project, and thus helps bring in new blood in an effort to enhance the quality of education in Hong Kong. In order to make Teach4HK a highly sought-after program among undergraduate students and fresh graduates, we would need your generous support to offer our fellows a sound working environment and comprehensive career support.
We would like to offer a basic living subsidy to our teaching fellows. Wages will be payable to fellows from September to June each year. We would aim at recruiting 6-10 fellows as the first batch, and there will be substantial financial needs that need to be raised by 2015.
2. Mentorship / Career Development Program
If fellows decide to explore a non-teaching career, necessary recourses will be provided by Teach4HK. A dedicated business mentor will be assigned to each fellow to guide their career planning. Apart from that, Teach4HK’s Alumni Impact team will organize various events for fellows to participate and learn about post fellowship opportunities.
a. Industry Presentation:
Teach4HK will invite various industry professionals to present their respective industries to the fellows. Experienced teachers and professors from the Education faculty will also talk to fellows on the career path as a teacher.
b. Interview Workshops:
We believe that strong interview performance will be key to gain admission into their desired companies or schools. Volunteers from Teach4HK’s Young Professionals Committees will hold regular interview and presentation skills workshops for fellows.
c. Networking Opportunities:
Fellows will be invited to join networking events. This can help fellows to build professional network and hone social skills to prepare them for future leadership roles.
3. Internship Opportunities for Fellows
Teach4HK seeks to partner with various corporate to promote Teach4HK and secure internship opportunities. Fellows are encouraged to take an internship program with corporate during school’s summer holiday after the fellowship. We believe that internship can put our fellows into a real working environment and thus assist them to figure out their career interest.
