CCCU succeeds in grant application
From Quality Enhancement Support Scheme 2017-19

 


The Community College of City University (CCCU) has successfully applied for a grant from the Education Bureau’s Sub-committee on the Quality Enhancement Support Scheme (QESS) in July 2017.


The QESS is set up by the Education Bureau under their Self-financing Post-secondary Education Fund (SPEF) to promote quality enhancement of the self-financing post-secondary sector.


Starting from September 2017, this grant will be used to implement the two-year QESS Project that aims to enhance the provision and effectiveness of personal development, counselling services and mental health awareness education to students of CCCU.


To fulfil the above objective, The Student Counselling Services and Personal Development Centre (“The Student Centre”) has been set up at CCCU to provide counselling services, and to organize a wide range of activities and programmes in relation to personal development and mental health education for students with different academic and cultural backgrounds. Through the provision of these support services and personal development advice, students will be able to receive direct assistance to alleviate emotional distress, explore personal attributes and develop coping abilities. Their personal growth will be enhanced which will in turn help them to pursue their studies in optimal conditions. Those who enroll in the Peer Counselling Programme, one of the key focuses of this Project, will gain useful experience as they acquire mental health knowledge and peer helping skills via training workshops. They will be able to take the lead in maintaining an inclusive attitude toward emotionally vulnerable students including SEN and NCS students.


Further information and updates about The Student Centre will be made known to all staff and students as they become available in due course.


 

 

 

質素提升支援計劃(二零一七年至一九年度)

 

香港城市大學專上學院(城大專上學院)於二零一七年七月成功獲得教育局質素提升支援計劃(支援計劃)小組的撥款。


支援計劃由教育局轄下的「自資專上教育基金」設立。該計劃旨在提升自資專上教育界別的教與學質素。


由二零一七年九月開始,該撥款將用於實施為期兩年的支援計劃,為學生提供全面有效的個人發展、心理輔導服務及精神健康教育。


為達到上述目標,城大專上學院已設立「學生輔導服務及個人發展中心」,為修讀不同學科及文化背景的學生提供輔導服務、精神健康教育及個人成長活動。透過一系列的支援及個人發展諮詢服務,以直接協助學生紓緩情緒困擾,使他們在探索個人潛能和發展適應能力的同時,能以最佳狀態應付學習困難。此外,本計畫其中一個重點項目「朋輩輔導計劃」能讓學生通過培訓工作坊學習精神健康知識,利用朋輩相互輔導及分享經驗的方式,協助有特殊學習困難及少數族裔的學生,在學院裏推廣關顧文化,發揮互助精神。


有關支援計劃的詳情稍後將於城大專上學院網站公布,敬希垂注。
