Staff Interflow Schemes

 

 Introduction

 

To facilitate cross-fertilisation of experience and expertise and to enhance overall professionalism of the education sector, the Education Bureau (EDB) has been operating the following three major voluntary staff interflow schemes : 

 

(a)     Annual Teacher Secondment Exercise 

This is designed for heads and teachers from government, aided, special schools and schools under the Direct Subsidy Scheme to take up professional duties in EDB for cross-exchange of expertise and experience.  This scheme enhances the partnership between EDB and schools. 

 

(b)     Scheme of Voluntary Postings to Schools for Non-teaching Departmental Grade Officers at Basic Rank 

This is designed for EDB basic rank officers in non-teaching grades to take up teaching duties in government and aided schools.  This scheme focuses on enhancing cross-fertilisation of professional expertise in the school setting. 

 

(c)     Cross-grade Posting Scheme 

Through cross-grade postings within EDB, this scheme presents the opportunity for EDB officers to widen their vision, experience and knowledge; develop their potential and professionalism; and improve their adaptability to changing circumstances. 

 

For the detailed arrangements of the 2018 Staff Interflow Schemes, please refer to Education Bureau Circular Memorandum (EDBCM No. 2/2018).
