Form Five Broadband Hotline for HKCEE candidates and parents
Symposium for parents and students  

The HKCEE results come out next week and this is a major turning point for thousands of Hong Kong students. It means stress and anxiety for them and their parents so Form Five Broadband hotline counsellors stand by day and night for calls on 27771112. The service is run by HKFYG's Youthline and phone lines, email inboxes, icq and chatrooms come alive with questions and answers as professional staff deal with uncertainties about career paths and planning options for future studies.

Finding the right school is one of the most important steps in the lives of Hong Kong students and there are now lots of alternatives, including vocational training and job placement schemes. We help parents find relevant information to make good choices. We help students choose the right courses for their abilities and we help those about to join the workforce set out on a track suitable for their skills and aptitudes. These are complicated issues and we try to provide guidance to the many options now open.

For more information about the counselling service contact Siu Man, tel 27883433 or 27883444, email
