Design Thinking Training Series for Education and Student Career Planning Sectors

Design thinking is a pivotal methodology for fostering innovation within the education and student career planning sectors. This approach is centered around understanding and addressing the actual needs of students, educators, and administrators. 

In essence, design thinking in education and student career planning not only leads to more effective and engaging services but also helps in cultivating a generation of students who are better equipped to navigate their future careers. It fosters a culture of continuous improvement and responsiveness, which is essential in the dynamic landscape of education and employment.

Since 2019, we have successfully conducted over 100 initiatives to advance Design Thinking across various educational levels—from kindergarten through secondary school. We have partnered in organizing Design Thinking applications for ESG competitions, engaging students in active learning and problem-solving. In the realm of career planning, we have hosted four significant events focused on Design Thinking for career development, inviting a diverse panel of educators, government officials, business leaders, and professionals to share their insights on career strategies.

For higher education, we have offered specialized courses for undergraduate and EMBA students. Additionally, we provide leadership programs specifically for school principals, which are organized in collaboration with the Education Bureau and Vocational Training Council of the Hong Kong government.
