  • Descriptions
    This programme is a two-year course for education practitioners interested in improving schools and student learning. It is relevant to both schools and office-based leaders regardless of their background or formal position.
    Hong Kong schools are under increasing pressure to improve the quality of education they offer.

    Recent educational and curriculum policy initiatives such as School Self-evaluation, External School Reviews, School-based Management, Certification for Principalship and the Continuing Professional Development of Teachers are pushing schools to experiment with a broad range of innovations. This trend is expected to continue, or even intensify, in the years ahead. Educational leaders at all levels in schools, sponsoring bodies and the government are charged with leading school improvement, and are being held accountable for its success.

    It is increasingly contingent upon schools themselves to drive their own improvement programmes in line with global trends and local needs. This programme is designed to provide innovative and energetic educators with both the theoretical and applied knowledge and skills needed to implement successful school improvements. The programme is offered by the Department of Educational Administration and Policy, and draws on both the department's existing offerings and those of the wider Faculty.

    Students are expected to engage in close cooperation with other practitioners to apply their knowledge and ideas in their own workplaces and educational contexts. The programme employs a variety of learning methods, including traditional lectures, school visits, case learning, applied research (including action learning) and focused small group interactions.
