              Leadership Enhancement Programme

Introduction
The Education Bureau (EDB) has launched the Support Measures for the
Exceptionally Gifted Students Scheme to help nurture and develop the potential and
talents of the exceptionally gifted students through enhancement programmes for
them and parallel support for their parents and teachers.

For the past six years, more than 6,000 secondary students with outstanding
performance/potential in leadership, mathematics, sciences or humanities have
joined the Scheme through seven territory-wide school nomination exercises to
participate in the various enhancement programmes under the Scheme. Over 50
multifarious enhancement programmes, exchanges, competitions, etc. are organised
annually for the exceptionally gifted students, their parents and teachers. These
activities were co-organised with tertiary institutions and associated organisations
while some of them were university-based credit-bearing courses or territory-wide
events and competitions. For details, please visit “Summary of Activities” and
“Activity Snapshot” at the website http://gifted.hkedcity.net/.
