Budget Speech

Vocational and Professional Education and Training

141. In addition, the Government has been actively promoting the development of vocational and professional education and training by providing flexible and diversified pathways for young people with different aspirations and abilities, with a view to nurturing talent required for the development of Hong Kong.  The Pilot Incentive Scheme to Employers and the Pilot International Study Programme under the Training and Support Scheme as well as the Pilot Subsidy Scheme for Students of Professional Part‑time Programmes have been implemented by the Vocational Training Council (VTC) to facilitate workplace learning and assessment, broaden learners' horizon and encourage continuing education among the working population.  The Government has decided to extend the schemes for two years to benefit more trainees.

142. The Government is currently reviewing the Diploma Yi Jin subsidy scheme and enhancing the programme curriculum.  The scheme will be regularised starting from the 2023/24 school year to continue supporting Secondary Six school leavers as well as adult learners in securing employment and pursuing further study.
