Experiential Learning


Positive Education at Teengineer (PGDE-FT)


Background of Co-organiser


Founded in 2014, Teengineer is one of the first institutes founded in Hong Kong to promote training, education and dissemination of Positive Psychology. We currently advise more than 100 schools and organisations on positive education strategies. Some of our partner organisations include the Education Bureau, Airport Authority, Hong Kong Jockey Club, Hong Kong Red Cross, etc. Our projects include resilience building, motivation enhancement, building high-quality connections, transcending limiting beliefs, and reducing burnout.


Positive Psychology is the scientific study of the strengths that enables individuals and communities to thrive. The field is founded on the belief that people want to lead meaningful and fulfilling lives, to cultivate what is best within themselves, and to enhance their experiences of life. Our mission is to share our knowledge of the field for the benefits of the world.




The positive school project (PSP) provides strategic development plans and tailored positive education solutions to our partner schools along their school improvement plan.
