NET Recruitment and Performance Management system


NET Performance Management

Quality Management Division is responsible for managing the performance of our NET team. We adopt a comprehensive “NET Performance Management System” which encompasses the steps of orientation and training, ongoing performance monitoring, and Care and Share.

teaching skills.
  • Debating
  • Drama
  • Using Games & Activities to Teach
  • Phonics (Jolly Phonics)
