Diverse workforce:  Secretary for the Civil Service Joshua Law (right) meets disabled summer interns at the Central Government Offices.

Secretary for the Civil Service Joshua Law today met disabled summer interns at the Central Government Offices to learn about their experiences.


The undergraduates are participants of an internship programme launched by the Civil Service Bureau last year to allow disabled students to gain work experience before joining the labour market.


Coming from seven local universities, the 32 students who joined the scheme this year have been assigned to 15 government bureaus and departments for eight weeks.


Mr Law encouraged them to unleash their potential and contribute to the community after graduation.


He said given the positive response to the scheme last year, the bureau increased the number of undergraduate placements by 60% to 32 this year.


"This internship scheme is different from other government internship schemes in that training elements are infused into the scheme.


"Apart from providing appropriate training and briefings for the interns so as to deepen their knowledge on the work of their respective departments, departments also assign colleagues as mentors to assist the interns in adapting to the working environment and coping with work challenges."
