Induction of Teachers into the School System of LTFC on EdBlog of HKedCity by Advisory Committee on Teacher Education and Qualifications, EDB.
Due emphasis is put on teachers’ professional development. In addition to encouraging teachers to attend training courses outside school, on-going school-based staff support and training programmes such as teaching mentoring and action learning, etc are organized. Teachers’ Mentoring Circle and Form-Class Pastoral Care Supportive Network are formed side by side to encourage team work, mutual support and experience sharing among staff, to strengthen interpersonal relationships and to build up strong morale, thus uplifting professional growth of the staff.
