[Archive] NET Scheme in Primary Schools

 

Advisory Teaching Team (ATT)

The Government provides support for the PNET Scheme by way of setting up an Advisory Teaching Team (ATT), comprising a mix of NETs and local English teachers. The ATT designs and operates professional development programmes for the NETs and local English teachers as well as conducts school development visits to individual schools. It facilitates the effective deployment of the NET, provides support for the development of innovative/effective teaching strategies and related curriculum resources, and disseminates good teaching practices in language learning and teaching. The ATT also provides peripatetic support for schools with less than six classes.

 

Vision

The ATT’s vision is to enable Hong Kong primary school students to become competent users of English and to enjoy the use of English in a variety of situations and for a variety of purposes.
