    New Programmes

    Professional Programme Graduation Ceremony

    The first Professional Programme Graduation Ceremony for this year, in which more than 530 certificates and diplomas were conferred, was held on 29 March. Former President Prof. John C Y Leong, LiPACE Director Prof. Lui Yu-hon and representatives of partnering institutions and academic staff were in attendance. At the Ceremony, certificates for the re-appointment of several Honorary or External Advisors to LiPACE were also presented. Finally, a Teaching Excellence Award was conferred on Mr Lai Pak-lok, an instructor of Comic Art, for his achievements in teaching, curriculum design and student support.

    Celebrating the first decade of the Capacity Building Mileage Programme

    Since its launch, over 70,000 enrollments have been recorded on the Capacity Building Mileage Programme. In response to developments in society in recent years, the Programme has introduced more new courses, promoted the use of multimedia, and extended its reach to meet the needs of additional sectors of the community, such as new arrivals and non-Chinese-speaking groups. This is the tenth year of the Programme, and a string of celebratory activities have been launched, including a commemorative TV programme and book, radio drama, and a ‘Pair-up for Free’ scheme to encourage current students to bring along new students who wish to join.

    New Programmes

    Yi Jin Diploma (Cruise Services)
    This programme is designed to meet the rising demand for talent in the travel cruise industry, in view of the growing popularity of this segment of the travel industry in recent years and the opening of the Kai Tak Cruise Terminal. Graduates can further their studies with a variety of programmes offered by LiPACE, including the Higher Diploma in Tourism and Hospitality Studies programme, Higher Diploma in Tourism and Airlines Studies programme, Professional Diploma in Inflight Service programme and Professional Diploma in Tourism and Hospitality Management programme.

    Yi Jin Diploma (Property Management)
    The need for more professionalism in property management is growing as fast as the demand for property management services, as reflected by the government’s plans to set up a Property Management Authority and related licensing systems. This programme is designed to enhance students’ knowledge of property and facilities management, and to enable students to deliver quality customer service skills. Upon completion of the programme, students may choose to study LiPACE’s Higher Diploma in Business Management or Professional Diploma in Property Management programmes.
    Higher Diploma in Tourism and Airline Studies
    This programme, jointly offered by LiPACE and Jardine Aviation Services (JASL), covers three areas including business, tourism and airlines. Students who perform well in the programme will have the opportunity to work as part-time staff at JASL with on-job training, and will be considered for a full-time appointment contract.

    Professional Diploma in Special Education and Inclusive Education
    Special education and inclusive education are currently hot issues in the field of education. This programme emphasizes family support and early interventions for children with special educational needs, and is designed to equip students with knowledge and skills required to support those children in various circumstances. The programme also covers the development and policies of special and inclusive education in both the local and global contexts. 

    Bachelor of Design with Honours in Interior Design
    This programme, jointly offered by LiPACE and the University of Wolverhampton in the UK, aims to foster students’ creativity and puts the focus on the acquisition of professional knowledge of interior design, including drawing techniques, computer visual effects, model-making and research skills. The first intake will commence in September 2014.
