Teacher Professional Development on Catering for Students with Special Educational Needs


To enhance the professional capacity of teachers in catering for students with SEN, the Education Bureau (EDB) has adopted a framework for teachers’ professional development on integrated education (IE) since the 2007/08 school year (s.y.).  Under the framework, structured training courses pitched at the basic, advanced and thematic (BAT) levels, are provided for serving teachers.  Apart from the BAT Courses, The EDB also holds a wide range of special education training to meet the training needs of teachers.
