    The presentation ceremony of the Dr Ng Tat-lun Memorial Outstanding Students Award Scheme 2016, recognising the outstanding performance of nine Vocational Training Council (VTC) students, took place today (16 June). The ceremony was the latest of many such events to see VTC students receive the commendation and support of donors.

    Speaking at the presentation ceremony, Johnny YEUNG, representative of the donors to the Dr Ng Tat-lun Memorial Outstanding Students Award Scheme, said, “While immersing yourselves in study, you should grasp the learning opportunities and scholarships offered to broaden your international perspective and enhance your competitiveness through extracurricular and exchange activities to acquire better understanding of the interconnectedness and development of the global community.”

    Excelling in the areas of academic studies, extracurricular activities and community service, the awardees were recommended by their respective departments and emerged with flying colours in the interviews. This year a total of nine students were conferred the scholarships, with each awarded HK$10,000. (See Annex 1 for the awardee list.)

    One of the awardees, Jennifer TSANG, is a student of the Higher Diploma in Sports Coaching programme offered by the Hong Kong Institute of Vocational Education (IVE) (Chai Wan), member institution of VTC. With a gold award in an Asian Taekwondo competition under her belt, Jennifer loves the martial art so much that she founded a Taekwondo school in her spare time to spread her enthusiasm and train others in the sport. She also volunteers to teach ethnic minorities, in order for them to integrate better into society. She is about to progress to a top-up degree programme in sports coaching offered by the School for Higher and Professional Education (SHAPE) in the pursuit of her dream career.

    Established in 1982, the Vocational Training Council (VTC) is the largest vocational and professional education and training provider in Hong Kong with some 250,000 students and trainees each year. The mission of VTC is to provide a valued choice to school leavers and working people to acquire the values, knowledge and skills for lifelong learning and enhanced employability, and also to provide valued supports to industries for their manpower development. VTC has 13 member institutions including the Technological and Higher Education Institute of Hong Kong (THEi) , the Institute of Professional Education And Knowledge (PEAK) , the School for Higher and Professional Education (SHAPE) , the Hong Kong Institute of Vocational Education (IVE) , the Hong Kong Design Institute (HKDI) , Hotel and Tourism Institute (HTI) , Chinese Cuisine Institute (CCI) , International Culinary Institute (ICI) , Maritime Services Training Institute (MSTI) , Youth College , Pro-Act by VTC , Integrated Vocational Development Centre (IVDC) and Shine Skills Centre.
