District Development Networks

The EDB set up District Development Networks (DDNs) in the 2016/17 school year to further deepen, optimise and popularise life planning education. Through district school head associations, federation of parent-teacher associations, as well as partners from the business sector and non-governmental organisations, the EDB pools efforts of different stakeholders and maximises district resources to enhance professional development of teachers and organize career exploration activities on a district basis, with an aim to collaboratively promoting life planning education.
