Gap Tutors for 2017-18

Harrow Hong Kong will invite applications from School leavers in the academic year 2017-18 who wish to gain work experience for a fixed period of time in a top international school in Hong Kong. Successful applicants are school leavers with appropriate experience in an independent school who intend to take a Gap Year before university, and with the ability and personality to: 

  1. Enhance their skills through a programme of training and support in an international day and boarding school
  2. Be able to contribute effectively to the life of an international school with a strong boarding ethos
  3. Embrace being involved in a School with students of many nationalities and in learning about local culture in Hong Kong
  4. Take advantage of the opportunities for exploring new places, cultures and traditions from the secure base of a familiar school environment. During the holiday periods, Gap Tutors will have the opportunity to explore the diversity of South East Asia

All Gap Tutors are assigned to and accommodated in a Prep boarding house, and are expected to contribute effectively to the life of that boarding House. There is a training programme that supports the involvement of Gap Tutors in School life and a formal assessment process to monitor progress.
