The NET Section

Since its establishment in 2002, the NET Section has been steering and facilitating the implementation and evaluation of the NET Scheme in Hong Kong, which comprises the NET Scheme in Primary Schools and the Enhanced NET Scheme in Secondary Schools.  

As the professional arm of the Scheme, the NET Section provides professional support for schools to maximise the benefits of the Scheme through the functioning of an Advisory Teaching Team and a Regional NET Coordinating Team, the former catering for the support needs of primary schools and the latter for secondary schools. The Section's key duties are as follows: 

  • to provide on-site professional support for English teachers, including NETs, in public-sector primary and secondary schools to maximise the benefits and potential of the NET Scheme and to facilitate the implementation of the CDC English Language Education Key Learning Area (ELEKLA) Curriculum Guide for P1 to S6; 
  • to design and implement literacy programmes and Seed projects in participating primary and secondary schools, with professional support provided for the English teachers concerned, including the NETs, as a means of fostering their professional development, promoting curriculum and pedagogical innovations and facilitating the implementation of the CDC ELEKLA Curriculum Guide for P1 to S6; 
  • to organise centralised and school-based professional development programmes and networking activities for English teachers, including NETs, in public-sector primary and secondary schools in Hong Kong; 
  • to organise competitions to provide opportunities for primary and secondary school students to develop and demonstrate their ability to use English creatively and collaboratively and to foster participating teachers’ professional growth; and 
  • to disseminate good practices, innovative teaching methods and resource materials developed by English teachers, including NETs, and to encourage professional networking.
