Career and Life Planning

  • Meaning of Life Planning:

    • Life planning is an ongoing and lifelong process for personal fulfilment, with different foci at different stages of one’s lifetime.

    • At the schooling stage, life planning education is one of the critical components in promoting whole-person development, with the objectives of enabling students’ self-understanding, personal planning, goal setting, as well as self-reflection and revision, and equipping students with the knowledge of various study, career and training pathways.

    • Students are equipped with the knowledge, skills and attitude to make wise choices based on their interests, abilities and orientations, and are guided to integrate their career/academic aspirations with whole-person development and life-long learning through life planning.
