    The "Careers Guidance Handbook for Secondary 5 Graduates 2007-2008" will be published tomorrow (July 18) to help Secondary Five (S5) graduates prepare for the release of Hong Kong Certificate of Education Examination (HKCEE) results.

     The handbook, jointly compiled by the Education Bureau and the Hong Kong Association of Careers Masters and Guidance Masters (HKACMGM), provides comprehensive information on further studies, vocational training and careers paths for S5 graduates.

     "The Careers Guidance Handbook for Secondary 5 Graduates 2007-2008" outlines the Secondary Six (S6) Admission Procedure 2007, which will start from August 8 (the date of release of HKCEE results), and provides details of S6 courses being offered by secondary schools.

     The handbook also introduces the Secondary Six Joint Admission Scheme. This year, secondary schools in Tai Po, North, Sai Kung, Sha Tin, Tuen Mun, Yuen Long, Tsuen Wan, Kwai Chung & Tsing Yi, Kwun Tong and Islands Districts will organise Joint Admission Centres to admit students from other schools to their S6. Information about the schools counting the Careers-oriented Course scores in the S6 Admission Procedure is also included for students' reference.

     The handbook also provides information about the study path for S5 graduates, S5 courses for repeaters, professional and vocational training courses, sub-degree courses, Project Yi Jin and studying abroad.

     Also included are guidance articles contributed by HKACMGM members and a contact list of education and advisory organisations.

     From tomorrow, students can obtain the handbook for free from their own schools. Copies will also be available next week from the bureau's Regional Education Offices, Labour Department's Careers Information Centre and Job Centres and Public Enquiry Service Centres of the Home Affairs Department.

     The electronic version of the handbook will later be uploaded on to the Education Bureau website at .
