Restructuring vocational education system: Exploring dual pathways to achieve career and educational aspirations

The study on ‘Realising your dreams through vocational education and training (VET)’ suggests ways to enhance the VET system through restructuring its academic pathways and restoring public confidence in VET. Our suggestions aim to help students develop their talents into strengths and reach full potential, thus building a vibrant talent pool to facilitate the city’s overall development.

Provide a springboard to foster ‘Post-50’ joining the labour market
Cultivate a positive work environment attracting new blood

The study has reviewed the changes of Labour Force Participation Rate (LFPR) from 1998 to 2018 and analysed the relationship between the LFPR and the demographic characteristics, with a focus on exploring LFPR of persons aged 50 or above (Post-50) and their impacts on the labour market. The Centre hopes the findings help lay a groundwork for different stakeholders to unleash the potential of local workforce, and to plan ahead for manpower planning strategies in promoting Post-50 employment.
