Joining an apprenticeship will have the opportunity to participate in international skills competition and visits to foreign countries to broaden one’s perspective.
Apprentices with outstanding skills can have the chance to represent Hong Kong at the WorldSkills Competition, formerly known as the “Skills Olympics”, which is held every two years. Participants can exchange with young people from all over the world.
