    You have a GCSE in English?

    Sounds like you're over qualified...

    Shazana - depending on your nationality you could become a Foreign Domestic Helper (FDH). They do most of the childcare here in HK - creches are rare. Downside - the pay is pitiful (third world pay level) and you have to live with the family.

    Unless you are a Native english speaker, getting a teaching job would be much harder.

    Shazana, do you have a university degree? If not, it would be virtually impossible to prove your fitness as a teacher to the Immigration Department.
