Promotion of Vocational and Professional Education and Training

 

Vocational and Professional Education and Training (VPET) plays a pivotal role in broadening the learning opportunities for school leavers and in-service personnel, as well as nurturing the requisite human capital in support of Hong Kong's development. The Government has all along been committed to promoting VPET, and encourages young people to pursue education pathways and join industries that best suit their abilities and interests.

 

The Government has all along stressed the importance of VPET in sustaining social and economic development of Hong Kong. However, VPET is still not well understood by many students, parents and employers. In view of this, the Government has established the Task Force on Promotion of VPET in April 2018 to review and consider enhancements to the promotion of VPET in Hong Kong with a more targeted approach. Members of the Task Force comprise representatives of schools, parents and employers, as well as community service and labour sectors. The Task Force completed its public consultation from May to July 2019, and submitted its review report to the Government on 23 January 2020. The review report put forth 18 recommendations focusing on four areas, namely enhancing promotion in secondary education, enhancing promotion in higher education, developing vocational progression pathways, and strengthening future promotion. The full review report, list of recommendations, leaflet on key recommendations, and consultation document of the Task Force can be downloaded at the following link.
