Established in 1982, the Vocational Training Council (VTC) is the largest vocational and professional education and training provider in Hong Kong with some 250,000 students and trainees each year across 13 member institutions.
The mission of VTC is to provide a valued choice to school leavers and working people to acquire the values, knowledge and skills for lifelong learning and enhanced employability, and also to provide valued supports to industries for their manpower development.
The Education Bureau is responsible for the formulation of policies and the introduction of legislation to ensure that quality education is being provided for Hong Kong’s young people, and that the manpower needs of different sectors of the community are well looked after. The Bureau also oversees the implementation of programmes that are designed to bring these objectives to fruition.
The HKSAR government has always attached great importance to education. The goal is to progressively establish a diversified and sustainable education system that provides ample opportunities for the young generation to develop their diverse interests and talents to meet their personal aspirations, as well as to contribute to the well-being of the society, the nation, and the world.
