SHKP-Kwoks' Foundation Sponsors
More Mainland Career Counsellor Training in Hong Kong
The SHKP-Kwoks' Foundation is sponsoring a fifth Chinese Ministry of Education programme to train high-school career counsellors. Participants will visit local universities and companies and attend talks and seminars organized by the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. The programme is intended to enhance abilities in counselling students on their career prospects.
The 25 participants from 23 high schools met Sun Hung Kai Properties management to learn about the company's training programmes, human resources strategy and development trends. Foundation Executive Director Amy Kwok and Director Kwong Chun also spoke with the counsellors. Ms Kwok said that the success of the last four programmes encouraged the Foundation to continue its efforts. She hoped more mainland counsellors would learn from Hong Kong and become familiar with corporate training, talent retention, creative thinking and international perspectives from human resources experts. The training will enable the counsellors to better advise graduates and channel their skills to benefit the country.
The Chinese Ministry of Education has implemented a number of initiatives since the formulation of the country's 11th national five-year plan to manage national educational development and balance the needs of business and society. This includes training high school teachers as career counsellors with an international perspective. The SHKP-Kwoks' Foundation shows support to the Chinese Ministry of Education with a sponsorship of about HK$2.5 million to train mainland career counsellors and 125 have taken part.
The SHKP-Kwoks' Foundation was set up in 2002 to help talented people through education and training. It offers scholarships and research grants for mainlanders and opportunities to study at noted educational institutions overseas. Over 5,000 participants have benefitted so far. The Foundation is also committed to the long-term development of cultural and heritage preservation on the mainland, working with a number of top overseas universities to train specialists in the fields.
