To introduce programmes suitable for DSE candidates, the Vocational Training Council (VTC) will organise the one-stop VTC Programme Selection Info Day on 10 May (Saturday) at IVE (Haking Wong). Featuring programmes on the VTC’s degree, higher diploma, foundation diploma (Level 3) and diploma in vocational education programmes, the Info Day will make available on-site application for VTC programmes.
