Eureka's Teacher Training
Eurekaâ€™s training philosophy is designed to prepare highly motivated individuals with the skills and sensitivity to become effective teachers in the context of Hong Kong schools. The training identifies a set of interrelated abilities that are necessary for teachers who are unfamiliar with Hong Kong.
Eureka's Teacher Training consists of a mandatory induction session for all new cohorts of Eureka instructors as well as a series of free training workshops held at different times of the year. Our free training workshops are not just for Eureka teachersâ€”they are open to all Native English Teachers (NET) based in Hong Kong. All these activities provide teachers with basic skills and techniques necessary to have a successful first day of schoolÂ and support their continued growth throughout the year. Eureka believes that good classroom management skills and knowledge of Hong Kong's educational landscape are of great importance to new teachers' success in their roles as NETs. Thus, Eureka's training mainly focuses on these two aspects, complemented by other useful topics that revolve around effective lesson planning and adapting lessons for diverse learners.
