    The Vocational Training Council (VTC) participated in the four-day Education & Careers Expo held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre starting today (1-4 February), providing one-stop information for young people and in-service workers on the progression pathways available to them through vocational and professional education and training (VPET). Interested Secondary 6 students can also apply for the programmes on the spot. Under Secretary for Labour and Welfare Caspar TSUI officiated at the opening ceremony and toured the VTC Booth to check out the innovative teaching facilities and scientific research outcomes of VTC students and teachers.

    Unveiling the Education & Careers Expo, Mr Tsui toured the VTC Booth, exchanging with students and teachers to understand the latest development of VPET.

    Adopting the theme of “Skilling for the Future”, the VTC booth this year showcased products of technological innovation developed by VTC students, prizewinning works and its innovative teaching facilities. Together, they are the testimony of VTC’s drive to promote interdisciplinary development with the aim of equipping the younger generation with the requisite professional knowledge and skills of the 21st Century. In the Skills Excellence Zone that enhances interaction with members of the public, visitors can play an air hockey game with the robot “Air Hockey Go!” through a computer. They can also try out “Smily”, a device using the latest knowledge of Artificial Intelligence (AI) with human-computer interaction, to enhance customer services at shopping malls.
