Career guidance is provided for students of all academic levels in the form of providing information and counselling on further studies and job opportunities. Career activities are usually planned each year to include talks, experience sharing sessions, interview workshops, board displays, and visits to career exhibitions, to academic (usually tertiary institutions) and non-academic organizations.
In view of the implementation of the 3-3-4 curriculum, students face very keen competition and over 33% of the HKDSE students therefore have to go through alternative paths like associate degrees, higher diploma, studying overseas or in mainland China if they want to pursue further studies. Thus, career guidance appears to be crucial in the sense that students could be well-informed in advance before they make decisions about their study or career options.
It is our hope that through a series of well-planned programmes such as aptitude tests conducted by professional institutions like JAHK, organizing DSE Results Release Talk and Workshop, Job Workshop, Interview Workshop, Career Mapping Workshop, talks on Overseas Studies, experience sharing session by alumni and visits to careers expo, various tertiary institutions and different companies to help our students to know more about their viable study and career paths, so that they are well-informed when choosing their study programmes and careers which are best suited to their interest and aptitude. We also hope that that they are well-equipped to take on challenges in the future with confidence.
