I&T Master Class and Career Planning App (POC) Design Competition
The sponsorship project is funded by the Office of the Government Chief Information Officer (OGCIO) for fostering an IT learning atmosphere and stimulating students' interest in IT in secondary schools.
The coronavirus pandemic has upended schooling in Hong Kong where schools turn to online learning, revealing the struggle with insufficient digital and IT skills among students. Knowing student’s yearning to develop IT skills, not-for-profit NGO Ampower Talent Institute invites students in all secondary schools and their affiliated primary schools in Hong Kong to participate in an upcoming mentorship programme and a series of master classes, which are mainly in the form of recorded/live online classes or webinars, to equip themselves with the essential IT knowledge and skills. Participating students of the tuition-free programme will be eligible for an IT Talent Competition, with the chance of winning great prizes and certificates, while outstanding students will be offered internship opportunities in large organizations to develop their potential and broaden their horizons.
