Welcome Message

A warm welcome to you!  It is my pleasure to meet you in Hong Kong in the beginning of 2018.  As the Chinese Lunar New Year (the Year of the Dog) is near and people are preparing their most important family gathering of the year, you shall not miss the vibrant activities on the streets and food markets.  Although there are no ear-blasting firecrackers and a bit early for the ‘red packets’, you can still feel the joy from the glistering decorations along with the red scripted blessing scrolls in the city. 

 

This academic year also marked a promising beginning in Hong Kong’s higher education sector.  A new subsidy scheme for students was launched by the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) Government to encourage their enrolment in self-financing higher education institutions.  There is also an urge of the HKSAR Government to develop graduates with knowledge and skills matching labour qualities demanded by various industries by emphasising Vocational and Professional Education and Training (VPET) to reposition vocational education and training and guide the younger generation in choosing their careers.  In arriving this, a series of measures were implemented by the Government to strengthen VPET and support its development alongside academic education.  Salient focuses are on the organisation of large-scale skills competitions, action and applied research on VPET’s specific disciplines and learning and teaching pedagogies advancement.  This opens opportunities for cross-institutional collaborations and overseas academic exchanges.  Thanks to Higher Education Forum (HEF), the newly added VPET stream in this conference indicated the increasing attention and research needed in VPET.  It also facilitates a platform for academics over the world to share their insights, foster networking for potential project collaborations.  

 

May I wish you a good trip and looking forward to seeing you soon in Hong Kong.
