I·CARE Achievers Programme: Tryout Activities

The full-fledged I·CARE Achievers Programme will commence in the 1st term of 2018-19.  To gauge the effectiveness of part of the activities to be run under this Programme, a number of tryouts have been organised in February-April for free participation of all full-time undergraduates and postgraduates.

The first tryout activity "Workshop on Value Clarification", which was led by Ms. Irene Ng (Director of this Centre), was completed on 8 February.  Ms. Ng utilised the training tool for "Modelling the Way" under Student Leadership Challenge® to assist participants to clarify their own value system, as well as to develop their potential by aligning their belief and action.

The other two tryout activities will be launched in March with details as follows:
