Our Teachers

Our NETs


We have a group of 700 Native-speaking English teachers (NETs) working with us. This group of teachers is made of many different nationalities from around the world and we are proud to have them in our employ. At Headstart we promote and reward our NETs’ self-improvement and encourage them to do all that they can to take the next step on their teaching path. We run monthly training seminars for teachers on the newest and most innovative methods of delivery in the classroom to ensure they can give the best service to our schools and our students.

Words from our NETs

‘Headstart provides varied opportunities to experience working in a school environment. The company also offers training and continued support both personally and professionally, which as an employee is greatly valued.’
Tina Lunde-Pickover
‘Headstart has always helped me be certain that I have a great place to work each year, and helps with any possible issues with schools. These are essentials for contract teachers, as without them it is extremely difficult to teach in Hong Kong.’
Aaron McGill
‘I’ve been with Headstart as a full-time NET since 2013. Since then I have always received sincere support from all the staff.’
Sandy Wright
‘A positive and supportive work environment. The staff are helpful and genuinely care about their employees. That’s something that is very rare in Hong Kong.’
