Primary / Secondary Schools

With the support of SCOLAR and the funding from the Language Fund, the Education Bureau launched the Grant Scheme on Promoting Effective English Language Learning in Primary Schools in the 2017/18 school year.  The time-limited Grant is to help schools develop their school-based enhancement measures to further promote effective English language learning and teaching. 

All aided (including special schools with primary section adopting the ordinary school curriculum), government or Direct Subsidy Scheme (DSS) primary schools may submit their applications in the 2016/17, 2017/18, 2018/19 or 2019/20 school year.  With the maximum grant capped at $350,000, the actual amount of grant for each school would depend on individual schools' proposals and implementation strategies.

Schools allotted with third round quota should submit the completed application forms and implementation plans on or before 21 January 2019 (Monday) for taking forward their school-based curriculum initiatives from the 2019/20 school year.

The latest quota for the 4th round is as follows:
