Counselling service is an indispensable component of primary schools. Primary school counsellors should be adequately trained so that they have the competencies to perform their professional responsibilities. This paper examines the model that is currently used by the Education Department to train primary school counsellors in Hong Kong. An alternative training model is proposed. The alternative model consists of theoretical and supervised practica training, as well as formal assessment at different stages resulting in the granting of a postgraduate diploma or degree in primary school counselling. The objectives, structure, and advantages of this proposed training model are discussed.
