How about getting your helper some additional training to skill her up?

Schools for domestic helpers in Hong Kong

Any Hong Kong family with domestic workers knows what a blessing these amazing men and women can be! If there is a domestic helper at home, you need to make sure your helper feels supported and loved. Families are now stepping up their efforts to improve the well-being and prospects of their employees by enrolling them in training focused on a particular skill or activity. Beyond the specifics of employment contracts, families ensure that the maid feels appreciated while caring for their family and home. What's even better is that both employer and team member benefit. Choose from this variety of valuable and interesting lectures and workshops to get help in Hong Kong.

Note: The situation in H.K. regarding coronavirus shutdowns and time restrictions is constantly evolving. Many schools take extra precautions but advise your domestic worker to follow the latest government advice and stay at home if you've recently travelled overseas, interacted with someone who has been tested for Covid or has the symptoms. Many of these physical classes are temporarily suspended and will resume physically once the COVID-19 outbreak is contained. But for now, the majority are available online.

Below are some of the courses and schools you can enrol your domestic worker for:


From dressing and feeding to managing bad behaviour and communicating with young children, learning the details of the child and baby care is essential to ensuring your babies are safe and well cared for. Helpers may also benefit from childcare courses, as this is often the first type of experience sought after by potential employers.


Uplifters strives to empower disadvantaged communities with online education and specialize in learning modules for domestic workers. Its online baby care content, developed by a paediatrician, covers the care, safety, and development from 0-18 months. Designed for domestic workers, other topics covered in this lesson are child protection, hygiene, food safety, child guidelines, health, and contact with the employer.




Annerley, the OT&P Maternity Hospital, offers a variety of babysitting and care classes. These range from babysitting (taught by a behavioural therapist to teach your assistant how to cope with a toddler's behaviour) to a babysitting workshop for children aged 0-12 months.
