【信報】課外活動栽培新時代吃香技能

我常常在這裡高呼培養軟技能的重要,也強調這是英國教育的優越處。其實軟技能真是大勢所趨,連世界經濟論壇近日也指出,2020年世界會經歷第四次工業革命,屆時十大最受僱主歡迎的技術,都會是軟技能:

 

複雜解難、批判思維、創意、人際管理、協調他人、情緒管理、判斷及決策制定、服務為本、議價技巧、認知靈活

 

要煉就這些吃香技能,課外活動是很好的搖籃。我經常講,一間學校的好壞可在其課外活動見端倪,課外活動對學生的個性建立有舉足輕重的重要,學校如能對之也設想周到,有意識地利用這平台從實踐中訓練學生的軟技能,就看得出校方是真心為學生的福祉著想。況且,現今英國大學越來越重視為學生的職途鋪路,收生時也看重同學仔有沒有具備在職場馳騁的潛能,課外活動的參與已經成為不少大學取錄時的關鍵考慮。

 

King’s Education旗下各學校在課外活動提供上絕對不比傳統寄宿學校遜色。其活動不是單多姿多彩,而是學校非常有意識地要透過不同活動來裝備學生,以應付他朝在大學及社會的需求。

 

例如各學校都設有學生會,銳意讓同學仔在管理運作中,鍛鍊服務他人的精神,亦考驗判斷和決策制定能力。校內可供參與的運動多籮籮,但非只為練出一副好身手或靚肌肉,卻旨在從運動戰略中訓練認知靈活及議價能力。Trinity Arts Award 是透過藝術創作來栽培創意和批判思維,愛丁堡公爵獎勵計劃則有助強化協調他人和複雜解難的能力。

 

King’s一心將教育寓於課外活動,所以課外活動的地位不亞於課堂學習。以 King’s Brighton為例,周間每天16:30-17:30都是進行各種課外活動的時間,周末更衝出校園有各種長短旅行、考察。總之同學仔大多時間都在輕鬆有趣味地與同學師生作互動,從而不知不覺地為未來作了最充足的裝備。

#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.
