Aim(s) of project This project aims at providing student support programmes on Chinese Language for non-Chinese students at Secondary level; and conducting teachers workshops for Chinese Language teachers on the development, selection and use of learning and teaching resources for NCS students to address problems arisen from learning diversity among NCS students.
Mission We target to support Non-Chinese students to learn Chinese language effectively, based on an integration of university-supported research and practical experience from the frontline teaching. We aim to help these NCSs adapt to school life and the society and develop comprehensive skills in Chinese speaking, listening, reading and writing. To support NCSs to have better future career prospect, we also help preparing them for examinations for local and international qualifications.

Our motto is: “Equality and harmony, catering for diverse needs”. The spirit of “Harmony in diversity” and “All are educable” is also what we learnt from our partner schools.

The SSP programme provides tailor-made teaching materials and methods to cater for the needs of school. Services of the SSP include tutorial classes for NCSs, seminars and professional development workshops for teachers and the development of teaching materials.
