Founded in 1959, the Hong Kong Association of Careers Masters and Guidance Masters (now ‘Hong Kong Association of Careers Masters and Guidance Masters Limited’ [HKACMGM Ltd]) aims at providing professional support for all front-line counselling/guidance and careers guidance teachers in secondary schools of Hong Kong. We have been providing over 400 member secondary schools in 2015-2016 with all important information and professional training programs in the fields of career guidance and general guidance so that teachers and counsellors can provide quality services to students and keep themselves updated with the latest trends in the careers / counselling field.
For improvement in quality service to member schools, the majority of our well-received and unique programs/services, including the following, are open to member schools ONLY:
- Dissemination of NAS JUPAS Statistics(there were over 12,300 individual cases of university admission results with actual subject results collected in 2015)
- Attendance to JUPAS Talk, and talks/seminars related to NAS multiple pathways
- Enrolment to use career assessment tools including Finding Your Colours of Life, Career Mapping and on-line
- CII quantitative assessment in the “myCareerMap” platform (www.mycareermap.org )
- In-house staff development programs
I am also pleased to inform you that the Third Annual General Meeting of the Hong Kong Association of Careers Masters and Guidance Masters Limited will be held on Wednesday, 26 October 2016 from 1:30 p.m. to 4:15 p.m. at Holy Trinity College in 3 Wai Chi Street, Shek Kip Mei, Kowloon.
In the last school year, numerous cases of student suicide were reported, which have deeply worried the education sector and the community as a whole. We are in great honour to have Professor Yip, Paul Siu Fai (葉兆輝教授), Director of Centre for Suicide Research and Prevention and Professor of Social Work and Social Administration, The University of Hong Kong, to share with us on the topic “The role of secondary school teachers in preventing student suicides and promoting positive development of students” (tentative). Also, the AGM will feature a review of the CLP policy and grant utilization in schools based on three consecutive surveys by HKACMGM.
