Promulgation of COTAP's First Progress Report

On 20 April 2015, the Committee on Professional Development of Teachers and Principals (COTAP) published the First Progress Report on its work. The Report summarised the progress made by COTAP since its establishment in June 2013, and presented its views and recommendations as well as its work plan.

In the First Progress Report, three main targets, with specific details set under each, have been identified by COTAP. They are: (1) strengthened school leadership and reflective culture; (2) enhanced teacher quality; and (3) supportive environment for professional development. To pursue these targets, COTAP will launch an overarching project, T-excel@hk. Eight areas of focus are covered under T-excel@hk and will be prioritised for implementation in phases. For more details, please refer to the press release of the conference and the First Progress Report.
