Canadian Company Footprints Recruiting Wins Exclusive Contract with Hong Kong
Education Bureau

-Premium teaching positions created for qualified Canadian teachers-

VANCOUVER, March 26 /CNW/ - Footprints Recruiting was selected as the exclusive recruiter of 40 certified Canadian teachers to work in public schools in Hong Kong. The contract was awarded to Footprints by the Education Bureau of Hong Kong, with teachers commencing their positions in August, 2010.

According to Ben Glickman, Managing Director of Footprints Recruiting, these positions offer a great opportunity for teachers made redundant by recent cuts.

Public school teaching positions in Hong Kong are some of the most desirable ESL teaching positions. These positions offer wages on par with those in North America, and teachers with financial obligations in Canada can take advantage of this opportunity while local teaching positions are declining.

Footprints Recruiting represents 1,000 teachers working overseas.

"We are seeing an increase in demand for professionally accredited teachers in South Korea, Taiwan, China, Brunei, UAE and Saudi Arabia. There is a demand for primary and secondary school teachers, and CELTA and TESL certified teachers.

Canadian teachers are highly regarded globally, and there is a substantial increase in applications for overseas positions as teachers who are keen to maintain the currency of their teaching skills pursue an international adventure while the local market improves," says Glickman.

Already the largest recruiter of ESL teachers to the Ministries of Education in South Korea and Taiwan, this contract is a significant development for Footprints Recruiting and represents a major step in their bid to be the primary recruiter of ESL instructors for Chinese speaking countries.
