Our courses are taught in accordance with their aptitude, considering the learning conditions and absorptive capacity of students, and strive to transfer knowledge and skills with appropriate teaching methods. The concept of this “80-16-2-99” is: the course design is 80% practical, 20% theory; the admission qualification is 16 years old or above; the medium of instruction is 2 kinds – mainly Chinese, English is Secondary; 99% employment opportunities are provided after graduation.
Ninety-nine percent of the employment rate has dropped by 1%. It is not that they are not fully taken care of, but another phenomenon that is encouraging. After being exposed to appropriate curriculum design and guidance, students can mobilize their enthusiasm for learning and self-confidence, and improve themselves.
