    Helping our domestic helper finish secondary education

    Hello,

    We would like to help our domestic helper complete high school in Hong Kong, so she qualifies for vocational training. She told us she has completed all but one year of secondary education in the Philippines, but that isn't enough to qualify for the training she wants

    Is there any way I can help her complete her secondary instruction here in HK? Schools, associations, etc. that would help her catch up?

    Thanks!

    It is easy for them to take an exam in the Philippines which gives them the equivalent of high school graduate. She does not have to study for a year. My wife did it in a couple of weeks, having also missed the last year. Though she is naturally quite bright.

    I am not sure if the Consulate could help her do the preparation and exam here.

    In this case I can be helpful, I think. But no debates
