The Advisory Teaching Team (ATT) is established under the NET Section to support the implementation of the Primary NET Scheme by:

  • designing and running professional development programmes for NETs and local English teachers (LETs);
  • providing school-based support to promote innovative and effective learning and teaching strategies;
  • developing and implementing literacy programmes and Seed projects to foster collaboration between NETs and LETs and their professional development, as well as students’ literacy development; 
  • giving advice on NETs’ deployment;
  • developing resources to support curriculum implementation;
  • disseminating good teaching practices in language learning and teaching; and
  • providing peripatetic support for schools with less than six classes.



The ATT’s vision is to enable Hong Kong primary school students to become competent users of English and to enjoy the use of English in a variety of situations and for a variety of purposes.



The ATT’s mission is to create an enriched and effective English language learning and teaching environment in local primary schools through the implementation of curriculum reform, the professional development of teachers and the adoption of innovative learning and teaching practices.
