It covers six knowledge contexts, namely “Information and Communication Technology”, “Materials and Structures”, “Operations and Manufacturing”, “Strategies and Management”, “Systems and Control”, and “Technology and Living”. Modular approach is proposed in the implementation of the curriculum.

  • Applied Learning courses Secondary 5 and 6 students may choose Applied Learning (ApL) course(s) as elective subject(s) according to their interests, aspirations and aptitudes. There are six areas of studies in the ApL curriculum, namely: (1) Creative Studies, (2) Media and Communication, (3) Business, Management and Law, (4) Services, (5) Applied Science, and (6) Engineering and Production.In each cohort, there are more than 30 ApL courses (including Applied Learning Chinese (for non-Chinese speaking students)).

 

  • Other Languages There are six Other Languages namely, French, German, Hindi, Japanese, Spanish and Urdu. Students can take other languages as their elective subjects. The programmes of these languages must follow the curriculum and examinations pitched at AS-level offered by the Cambridge Assessment International Education and administered by the Hong Kong Examinations and Assessment Authority.
