What is Vocational and Professional Education and Training (VPET)?
VPET covers programmes up to degree level with a high percentage of curriculum consisting of specialised contents in vocational skills or professional knowledge. In other words, VPET is not confined to the education and training provided in, for example, VTC and other smaller training providers but some higher education institutions in Hong Kong as well. With this, VPET equips learners with necessary practical skills, attitude and knowledge for their effective performance in the relevant professions/industries. As a result, the VPET-related industries are also wide-ranging.
