【信報:留英得着】學得一身軟技能
小弟上星期榮獲英國文化協會頒發英國傑出校友獎,與有榮焉。得獎者感言不在此多贅,只想感激母校華威大學,不僅是多得其提名,小弟才能有幸獲獎,更要多得其栽培,令我能學以致用,方有今日小小的成就,得到大家的賞識。
 
有人或會抗議:「喂Samuel,你在華威讀嘅係經濟,你今日辦嘅係教育,何來學以致用之有?」
 
說得對,小弟當日是主修經濟,今日從事的卻主要是升學教育及教育寫作,大纜都扯唔埋。正如好多同學都會擔憂,自己今日讀的科目,所學到的知識技能,他朝會否都能應用到職場範疇內去呢?
 
這個憂慮其實非常正路,正因如此,我對華威大學更心存感恩,因為在母校我學到的,不止是經濟科的專業知識,更加是思考方法、批判性思維和做研究的態度,這些都是些可轉移的軟技能,放諸五湖四海以至各行各業都有大派用場之處。
 
猶記得小弟當日在華威大學上碩士課程的第一堂,教授Peter Burnell兩手空空前來,連課程鋼要也沒有一張派發給我們。他一坐下,反主為客,不解釋自己會在新學期教什麼,反而問我們想學什麼。小弟和在座同學臉上齊齊發出一百個問題:「唔係你來教我哋咩?」
 
展開熱烈討論
然而在他引導下,大家馬上展開了熱烈的討論,互動交流下同學亦立時熟絡了。教授不單引領我們問問題,也指引我們看問題的癥結,並促進了大家之間的溝通和合作,建立出團隊精神,過程中提升了大家的商議技巧和解決問題的能力。
 
第一個半天的上課,我們已經學到了經濟學以外重要的一課,令我印象至深,對我日後亦影響深遠。時至今日,工作上與夥伴同事開會,即使議題是我熟悉的範疇,我都不會擺出一副阿媽教仔的姿態,反而是以推動溝通為先,鼓勵集思廣益,讓大家多交流,討論便更趨建設性,團隊亦更能發揮所長。
 
今時今日,小弟的工作能夠得到大家認同,我始終覺得居功至偉的,是我背後的團隊,而這些年我之能讓我的團隊盡情發揮,到底少不得當年在母校華威大學所學到的一身軟技能。

#School Analysis
Considering its reputation, Oundle School may not catch up to Eton, Wycombe Abbey and else top elite schools. However, Oundle’s academic performance is among the best in the United Kingdom. As a traditional top boarding school, Oundle pays huge attentions to student’s holistic development, by providing them diversified extra-curricular activities. In addition, Oundle still implements the House Dining System, which is rarely remaining among uk boarding schools. It is also one of the reasons why Hong Kong parents making a beeline for.
The ratio of teachers and students in Bromsgrove School is 1:8, which is lower than the average among uk boarding schools. In addition, according to my school visit experience, Bromsgrove has the best facilities, that it is undoubtedly one of the best three campuses in the UK. Besides, Bromsgrove spares no expense to provide students comfortable environment, it even invests on the nearby hotel and transfers it into dormitories. As a result, students can possess the “5-star enjoyment” on campus. To conclude, Bromsgrove is definitely a prospective and globalised uk boarding school.
Brighton College is Britain’s premier private school and one of the Hong Kong parents’ favourites. To understand a boarding school, despite of looking at its educational tenet, diversified extra-curricular activities and academics results, it is essential to observe the boldness of the principal. 10 years ago, after Mr. Richard Cairns taking up the duty of the Brighton College’s principal, the school ranking raises from the 150th to the top 20th. In addition to promoting educational reformation, Mr Cairns is such a good principal, that he still strives for maintaining students’ curiosity at the same time.
