Authors: Lo Chan, Woon-ching, Eliza

Publisher: Hong Kong : Vocational Training Council ; IVETA
Abstract: The performance indicator for training for open employment is on how successfully the trainee is being employed in a job. Other than providing the job skills required which was always the emphasis in the vocational training, there are other issues, equally important, that should be addressed to prepare the trainees to enter into the competitive open job market. Independent and social skills should be strengthened through programmed activities. Attention should also be paid to minimize the mismatch between skills training and job opportunities to the trainees. Based on the provision in the skills centres for the people with disabilities aiming at training for open employment in Hong Kong, this paper identifies the areas and shares the experience of how the support service is rendered to enhance the employability of the trainees.
