Broad-based Curriculum Nurtures Professionals of the Future


The VB programmes are delivered in English and specially designed to nurture all-round professional knowledge and personal skills for future success in the workplace. The broad-based curriculum covers core subjects in language and numeric studies, the chosen vocational field and whole person development modules, nurturing flexible, skilled and work-ready young professionals.

Developing your Interest as a Profession


Taking reference from international standards, the VB programmes adopt the BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma studies in the fields of Engineering, Design or Sport. Based on individual interest, students will be able to choose from one of the specialist programmes and acquire knowledge and skills through practical project-based learning.




Building a Solid Foundation


In addition to strong vocational and professional elements, the VB programmes place emphasis on the acquisition of language and numeric skills, paving the way for further studies and career development. Students will study English Language, Chinese Language and Mathematics at IGCSE level and possess relevant qualifications recognised for further studies locally and overseas.
