Information Expo on Multiple Pathways 2015 to be held this weekend

     The Education Bureau (EDB) will hold the Information Expo on Multiple Pathways 2015 on May 9 and 10 (Saturday and Sunday) at the Kowloonbay International Trade & Exhibition Centre to provide information on further studies and career pathways to secondary school leavers. Admission is free.

     More than 30 exhibition booths will provide information on locally accredited post-secondary programmes (including vocational education programmes), the Yi Jin Diploma, non-local programmes and articulation pathways outside Hong Kong. The Expo will also provide information on the Information Portal for Accredited Post-secondary Programmes (iPASS), the Electronic Advance Application System for Post-secondary Programmes (E-APP), e-Navigator, the Concourse for Self-financing Post-secondary Education and the Qualifications Framework, which are useful tools and platforms to assist students in planning their further studies.

     Institutions and organisations participating in the Expo will provide candidates of the Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education Examination and other students with enquiry services and programme information. Hok Yau Club, the Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups and the Hong Kong Young Women's Christian Association will offer advisory services to students.

     Apart from booths, there will also be talks on multiple pathways for secondary school graduates, including preparation for articulation to post-secondary education and experience sharing by students of post-secondary programmes. To enable students to gain first-hand information, industry representatives have been invited to interact with institutions and students to share how co-operation between institutions and industry can better prepare students for their careers.

     The Information Expo will be held from 10am to 6pm on May 9 and 10 at Rotunda 2 of the Kowloonbay International Trade & Exhibition Centre, 1 Trademart Drive. It is organised by the EDB, with the Federation for Self-financing Tertiary Education, the Hong Kong Association of Careers Masters and Guidance Masters and Hong Kong Education City as supporting organisations.
