HKBU is now pioneering a new school-to-work learning initiative in Hong Kong, CLAP-TECH Pathway, leading from secondary school to tertiary education, with multiple entry and exit points. Funded by The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, CLAP-TECH provides authentic learning opportunities and meaningful employer encounters including mentorship, workplace learning, industry exposure and internships. CLAP-TECH complements the existing mainstream education system by offering an Applied Learning course at the senior secondary level and an under-development Higher Diploma programme. CLAP-TECH is built upon a tripartite partnership of secondary schools, university and industry partners to foster talent development in information technology as the first track, with supporting industry partners including IBM, Microsoft, Towngas, UBS, ASTRI, Equinix and more. Given the early success findings in the first track, HKBU is now launching a second track in creative media, and is inviting applications for the following position to lead, manage, coordinate and develop this evolving learning pathway.
