VTC Programme Selection Info Day
provides information and tips on diversified progression pathways interactively (21-22 May)
The Vocational Training Council (VTC) will host the VTC Programme Selection Info Day on 21 and 22 May (Friday and Saturday) in an online and hybrid format to assist candidates in planning their progression pathways after the Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education Examination (DSE). Secondary 6 students and parents will be able to gain first-hand information on VTC’s diversified programme options leading to awards at different levels including Bachelor’s Degree, Higher Diploma, Diploma of Foundation Studies and Diploma of Vocational Education. Statistical analysis of further studies, information on programme selection and interactive Q&A sessions will be made available to help students plan for their further studies.
Highlights of the Info Day include the VTC Programme Selection Talk to be held on 22 May (Saturday, 2:00 pm), featuring a dialogue between famed disc jockey Sammy LEUNG and the VTC Education Advisor. Together, they will analyse last year’s statistics of further studies, discuss programme selection strategies, and explain VTC’s programme features, progression options and career prospects. On the same day, a Parents’ Talk will be held, at which Hok Yau Club’s Student Guidance Consultant NG Po-shing will take the audience through the post-DSE study pathways and share with parents how to help their children deal with the pressure when DSE results are released.
Discipline/Programme talks will also be featured during the two-day event, where the teaching teams will be invited from different disciplines or programmes to elaborate on their offerings so that students can better understand the latest programme features, entrance requirements, progression pathways and professional development. Interactive online Q&A sessions will also be available, at which the Education Advisor/teaching team will address enquiries about further studies from students and parents.
The discipline/programme talks will be live-streamed on 21 May. Events and activities on 22 May will be held both online and offline, with the physical event to be held at the Haking Wong Campus of the Hong Kong Institute of Vocational Education (IVE). Students and parents interested in participating on-site can register online* in advance. Info booths will also be set up to provide one-stop discipline and programme information on-site.
