Secretary for Education Choi Yuk-lin today officiated at the Education & Careers Expo 2023 at the Convention & Exhibition Centre, where the Education Bureau (EDB) has set up a booth running until February 5.


This is the first time for the bureau to participate in the expo to introduce the work of its different professional grades with a view to enhancing citizens’ understanding of its work and career opportunities. 


At the opening ceremony, Ms Choi said the expo is a valuable platform for educational institutions and private enterprises to directly disseminate to the public up-to-date information on further studies and career opportunities.


It ties in with the Government’s policy of providing quality, flexible and diversified study pathways with multiple entry and exit points.


The education chief said the Government will adopt a multipronged approach on various fronts to further promote Vocational & Professional Education & Training as a pathway parallel to conventional academic education.


It will also encourage the alignment of classroom education with industry needs and collaboration between businesses and education institutions, with a view to providing diversified learning and employment opportunities and nurturing more quality talent with applied skills, she added.


Visiting the EDB booth, Ms Choi said that the work of the bureau’s different professional grades is challenging yet rewarding, and she hoped to recruit aspiring talent to join the EDB.


Additionally, job seekers are welcome to attend a careers forum to be held at Hall 1D from 1.20pm to 1.50pm tomorrow, which features the specialised and all-round roles of the teaching and non-teaching professional grade officers who strive to pursue the EDB’s mission and vision.
