Vocational Development Programmes

Social Programmes

VTC provides vocational and professional education and training courses for young people seeking education or employment, who are non-Chinese speaking, and who have special educational needs. These courses help them develop their potential and prepare to join the workforce or further their education.

Vocational Development Programmes

Offered by the Youth College, these programmes are designed to help young people who are not currently engaged in training or employment through courses tailored for their interests and needs, so that they are better equipped for employment or further studies upon graduation.

Vocational Development Programmes include:

  • Teen’s Programme 
    Provides training courses for school leavers between 14 and 24 years of age with secondary education or below, preparing them for further studies or employment.
  • Ethnic Minority Project
    Offers a series of short and practical pre-employment vocational courses for ethnic youths between ages 14 and 24, to help them enhance their employability and social integration.

VTC offers vocational and professional education and training programmes to eligible persons irrespective of their ethnic origin. Students who meet the basic entry requirements may apply for admission to programmes offered by VTC’s member institutions. In addition to mainstream programmes, non-Chinese speaking (NCS) students may also join specially designed vocational and professional education and training programmes offered by IVE and Youth College.
