About INSTEP

 

In-service education is an integral part of the continuing professional development of teachers after their initial training. "INSTEP" (In-service Teacher Education Programme) is an initiative of the Faculty of Education, HKU, to provide non-award bearing in-service education opportunities for the teaching profession in Hong Kong.

The INSTEP Office of the Faculty has been offering government-commissioned in-service teacher training courses since 1991. Teachers, with their school principals' endorsement, normally apply for these courses via the Education Bureau's (EDB) Training Calendar System. These courses are fully funded by the EDB and are provided free to teachers, mostly on a first come, first served basis. To date, INSTEP courses have been attended by innumerable teachers from across a broad range of subject disciplines.

In 2019-20, the following workshops, courses, projects and talks are offered:
