Study Programmes

In the January 2017 Policy Address, the Government invited SCOLAR to consider making use of the Language Fund to introduce Chinese and English language enhancement programmes for kindergarten teachers, including training on skills in teaching Chinese to non-Chinese speaking students, to facilitate the implementation of the Kindergarten Education Curriculum Guide in the 2017/18 school year onwards. SCOLAR has invited the post-secondary or tertiary institutions which offer early childhood education programmes to develop and organise the Chinese and English Language Enhancement Programme for Kindergarten Teachers, and will fully subsidise serving kindergarten principals and teachers to undertake the programme. Each kindergarten under the Free Quality Kindergarten Education Scheme will be allocated a total of ten free training places for their teachers, including five training places of the Chinese language programme and English language programme respectively (four training places for teachers and one training place for principal). Subject to availability of resources, the Programme may be offered to other local kindergartens which practise the local Kindgergarten curriculum.
