Information Expo on Multiple Pathways 2016 to be held this weekend

     The Education Bureau (EDB) will hold the Information Expo on Multiple Pathways 2016 from 10am to 6pm on May 14 and 15 (Saturday and Sunday) at Rotunda 2 of the Kowloonbay International Trade & Exhibition Centre to provide information on further studies and career pathways to secondary school graduates. Admission is free.

     More than 30 exhibition booths will provide information on locally accredited post-secondary programmes (including vocational and professional education and training (VPET) programmes), the Diploma Yi Jin programme, 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 Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education graduates 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 career guidance services to students.

     Apart from information booths, there will also be talks for secondary school graduates on topics such as multiple pathways, preparation for articulation to post-secondary education, and sharing by post-secondary students. To enable students to gain first-hand information, industry and institution representatives have also been invited to talk about collaboration between institutions and industry on programme development and industrial attachment for VPET.
