Secondary School-based Support Services

The Regional NET Coordinating Team (RNCT) at the Native-speaking English Teacher (NET) Section, Education Bureau, provides School-based Support Services for secondary schools in Hong Kong to support the implementation of the CDC English Language Education Key Learning Area Curriculum Guide (Primary 1 - Secondary 6) (2017) (including the optimisation of Senior Secondary English Language) and the Enhanced NET Scheme in Secondary Schools.

Through the support, which can be provided either on-site or online, we hope to:

  • collaborate with teachers in trialling, refining and adopting effective learning, teaching and assessment (LTA) practices that are in line with the emphases of the English Language curriculum in Hong Kong;
  • promote the sharing of effective LTA practices; and
  • promote sustainable professional collaboration within the English Language panel. 

​Schools under the School-based Support Services will be collaborating with members of the Regional NET Coordinating Team made up of Curriculum Development Officers and Regional NET Coordinators.

In the school-based support, the RNCT:

  • advises teachers on effective LTA practices in the area of support requested by the school;
  • co-plans with teachers to develop learning and teaching resources  and units of work;
  • delivers school-based workshops;
  • identifies links between classroom learning and opportunities for authentic language use in the school-based co-curricular programmes;
  • facilitates the setting up of physical and/or online networks for the sharing of ideas and resources among schools receiving support in similar areas of the curriculum;
  • offers advice on setting up school-based or inter-school competitions to promote the creative and authentic use of English; and
  • dispenses advice on the use of community resources to extend students’ English language learning beyond the classroom.
