Education and Career Guidance Office and University Counselling Programme

The Education and Career Guidance (ECG) Office and University Counselling (UC) Programme at SISHK aims to build knowledge, nurture skills and develop the mind-set for lifelong learning, and to prepare our students for challenges in an ever-changing world.

The Goals of ECG and UC Programme are to:

  • Build Knowledge - build student capacity in discovering and developing their strengths and interests, understanding the evolving higher education landscape, and anticipating global career trends as they explore viable education and career options.
  • Nurture Skills - empower students with self-directedness, self-awareness, self-management skills, and life skills such as communication, organisation, and responsible decision-making skills.
  • Develop Mindset - inculcate a positive attitude towards various education pathways and an appreciation for the value and contribution of all occupations to society.

University Counsellors, together with Form Teachers and Diploma Programme (DP) Mentors, provide three levels of guidance to our students:

UC

Personal Guidance

  • DP Mentorship Programme: DP students are assigned DP Mentors who provide them with personal guidance on UC matters such as course and university selection and application processes, review of personal statement and application essay, and mock interviews. 
  • Form Teachers Interaction Time: Form Teachers regularly engage Secondary 1 to 4 students in one-to-one conversations about their education and career aspirations.
  • University Counsellors: all students can also contact and meet with University Counsellors if they require additional guidance.

Group / Interest-based

  • Group sessions for students with similar interests: university talks and workshops by university admissions teams, taster lectures by university professors, and seminars on pursuing higher education in various regions around the world are organised throughout the year.
  • External talks and Information Days: information is publicised to students and parents.
  • Alumni sharing sessions: alumni are invited to share their first-hand experience in course selection, university application processes, admissions interviews, college subject tests, and university life.

Cohort and School-wide

  • UC seminars and ‘how-to’ workshops: such as ‘How to draft a good personal statement / application essay’, ‘How to prepare for interviews’, ‘How to prepare my resume and portfolio’ for S3 – DP2 students are conducted during Pastoral Care (PC) lessons.
  • ECG lessons: S1 – S2 students focus on exploring and developing education and career aspirations during PC-ECG lessons.
  • IGCSE and IBDP subject combination seminars and Q&A sessions: organised for S2 and S4 students.
  • Annual Higher Education Fair: brings together universities admissions teams from around the world to SISHK.
  • Internship Programme: DP students and alumni are given the opportunity to go for an internship during the summer break that is matched to their career aspirations.
