Feedback on the student’s performance
Feedback on the students’ performance can be provided through the following means:

Communication with the EdUHK Supervisor via the tri-partite conference

Declaration of sex related crimes
To protect children and mentally incapacitated persons from sexual abuse, the Hong Kong Government has introduced a “Sexual Conviction Record Check Scheme” since 1 December 2011. Although the Education Bureau (EDB) does not mandate all students to provide placement schools with Sexual Conviction Records, the EdUHK has established its internal control mechanism requiring students before going on Teaching Practice to declare if they have any been convicted of and/or prosecuted with any sexual crimes. If so, a panel will be convened to consider withholding and/or postponing the Teaching Practice.
