This chapter aims at giving teachers a comprehensive view of the origin of guidance, a historical account of the development of school guidance in Hong Kong and a good understanding of the impact of social changes on the implementation of school guidance. In this chapter, two major policies concerning school guidance in Hong Kong will be introduced: (1) Whole-school Approach to Guidance, and (2) Comprehensive Student Guidance Service. The rationale, objectives, principles and strategies of the implementation of these policies will be explained with a view to facilitating teachers’ reflection on how to make the best sense of the present approach of school guidance service in helping students become more competent to meet challenges during their growth and development.
