The VTC offers vocational education and training programmes to eligible persons irrespective of race or ethnic origin. Recently, the number of Non-Chinese Speaking (NCS) students , who have enrolled in various VTC programmes, has increased tremendously. The students come from various countries and ethnic groups and have different cultural background, languages, characteristics and learning-styles. This poses new challenges to the frontline teachers and colleagues teaching and handling them. In order to assist both the novice and experienced teachers to adapt to this change, a Learning Community is formed. This web area serves as a platform for them and all the concerned and interested teachers to exchange and communicate their expertise and experience in teaching the NCS students.
Around five hundred Non-Chinese Speaking (NCS) students are studying in Hong Kong Institute of Vocational Education (IVE) and Youth College (YC) this academic year, and the number is on a rising trend.
This seminar aims to enhance participants’ techniques in teaching Chinese for NCS students and to provide them with a platform for knowledge sharing.
This workshop aims to enhance participants’ knowledge for identifying the cultural backgrounds of students from different ethnicities, as well as the in-group differences emerged within the same ethnic group (e.g. in terms of dressing, eating, etc.).
