Professional Development of Teachers

Tung Wah Group of Hospitals Kindergartens value professional training for teachers as we deem teaching staff to be important human resources and a linchpin that could make or mar a school’s education activities. Hence, schools would organize various education seminars, workshops and training programmes for teachers to advance with times and improve themselves, which in turn could improve teachers’ teaching skills in class and ensure that the teaching quality could cater for the students’ needs.
