The Hong Kong Vocational Professionals Admission Scheme (VPAS) is bridging the manpower gap for Professional and Technicians Talents

The Chief Executive’s 2023 Policy Address announced the pilot launch of the Vocational Professionals Admission Scheme (VPAS), which will provide more skilled labor to meet the demands of Hong Kong’s economic restructuring and technological advancement. The new measure can expand the talent pool for Hong Kong, the Greater Bay Area, and even our country by implementing a variety of training modes and programs. This will enhance the competitive advantages of Vocational and Professional Education and Training (VPET) and propel economic growth at both the national and Hong Kong levels.

For two years, the VPAS will run as a pilot. After completing specific full-time VTC Higher Diploma programs in Hong Kong for the academic years 2024–2025 and 2025–2026, non-local students (including those from the Mainland, other countries, and regions) will be qualified to apply for jobs in Hong Kong. Depending on their academic programs, these graduates can pursue careers in a variety of professional fields, such as aviation, transportation and logistics, innovation and technology, electrical and mechanical services, building, civil engineering and built environment, and maritime.

The new program could help bridge the manpower shortage for technicians and professional talent in key industries in Hong Kong by opening up more avenues for encouraging skilled workers to remain and work in the city. Additionally, it can facilitate talent exchange and connectivity between Hong Kong, the Greater Bay Area, and other nations or regions. Being the biggest VPET provider in Hong Kong, the VTC will implement the program, support international students in their job searches, and reenergize the labor market in Hong Kong by utilizing its industry network and training expertise.
