Patrick Nip visits AXA

Secretary for the Civil Service Patrick Nip today visited AXA Hong Kong & Macau to view the administering of COVID-19 vaccines.   About 360 staff and agents of the enterprise will receive either a Sinovac or BioNTech vaccine during a two-day outreach vaccination service by the Government.   Mr Nip said the Government welcomes enterprises to join hands with it in promoting the Early Vaccination for All campaign and encourages their employees to support the vaccination programme to protect the health of themselves, colleagues and clients.   He also hoped that people who get vaccinated will encourage their families and friends to do the same as a way to help build an immune barrier in Hong Kong.   He called on the public to get vaccinated as early as possible, noting that the vaccination programme is already offering more quotas for people to make bookings, and same-day tickets for vaccinations will be distributed to seniors aged 70 or above starting tomorrow.   Elderly peop

4 applied degree programmes set

The Education Bureau announced today that four degree programmes have been selected for the Pilot Project on the Development of Applied Degree Programmes.       The bureau launched the pilot project in December 2020 to gain experience in the practical issues involved in developing applied degree programmes and assessing the implications for the higher education system as a whole.   It selected four programmes for the project after assessing the proposals submitted by eligible self-financing post-secondary institutions.   They are Bachelor of Nursing (Honours) programme by Caritas Institute of Higher Education, Bachelor of Engineering with Honours in Testing & Certification programme by The Open University, Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Horticulture, Arboriculture & Landscape Management programme by the Vocational Training Council's Technological & Higher Education Institute, and Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Applied Gerontology programme by Tung Wah College.   The bureau has engaged the Council for Accreditation of Academic & Vocational Qualifications to assist the institutions in the development of the applied degree programmes.   Subject to the satisfactory completion of accreditation, the institutions will launch the applied degree programmes in the 2022-23 academic year at the earliest.   The pilot project was launched upon a recommendation made by the Task Force on Promotion of Vocational & Professional Education & Training.
