Secondary Schools IT Training Scheme


Background

The Task Force on IT Manpower set up under the Information Infrastructure Advisory Committee has recommended, in its report of July 2001, the Government to collaborate with the industry to provide more professional IT training for secondary students. A pilot Secondary Schools IT Training Scheme (“the Scheme”), which is co-organised by the industry, the education sector and the Government, was launched in September 2002.


Objectives

The Scheme serves to provide professional IT training to Form 4 to Form 7 students, in the form of extra-curricular activities, with the following objectives:

O To provide our students with relevant IT training so that they can be better equipped for pursuing further studies or establishing a career in the IT field;
O To provide our students with basic business skills for better career preparation; and
O To enable our students to learn authentically under a problem-based and project-based learning environment.


Details

Under the Scheme, 20 university graduates were employed as IT Trainers to provide practical IT training to Form 4 to Form 7 secondary school students through extra-curricular project-based IT training programmes. Around 100 secondary schools and 9,000 numbers of student-participants have participated in the Scheme.

The trainers were provided with a one-month intensive training on IT, basic business and pedagogical skills. After the training, these trainers had then provided a one-stop service to participating schools, from tailoring of the training curriculum, conducting training and providing assistance to students’ projects.

Participating schools had also taken part in tailoring the training curriculum, both in terms of content and mode of delivery, to suit the needs of their students.


Organisers

The Scheme is a partnership between the Commerce, Industry and Technology Bureau, the Education and Manpower Bureau, the Hong Kong Education City, the Hong Kong Computer Society and PCCW.
