    Quality Training with Placement Opportunities


    The discipline provides opportunities for young people to seek careers in the child education and community services industry. As part of the programme, students are attached to childcare centres, kindergartens or elderly centres and homes to equip themselves with practical experiences.


    Partnership with Industries


    The discipline maintains close working relationships with government bodies, social services centres, homes for the elderly and pre-school centres for input into the curriculum. Our industry partners also provide solid support in fieldwork placements, field visits and research projects which enrich learning experiences of our students.


    Specialised Facilities


    The discipline is supported by well-designed facilities for special teaching and learning purposes. The Child Education Centre for Teaching and Learning, the mini-golf driving range and the Fitness Playground are all purpose-built facilities
    for students to practise and develop relevant skills of their subject fields.


    Industry Recognition


    Our programmes are recognised by the Education Bureau and the Social Welfare Department. Graduates become registered kindergarten teachers, child care workers, qualified health workers and welfare workers, realising career dreams while contributing to society.
