Diploma of Applied Education
The Diploma of Applied Education (DAE) Programme provides an alternative pathway for secondary 6 school leavers as well as adult learners aged 21 or above to obtain a formal qualification for the purposes of employment and further study. In addition, the content and design of the DAE programme incorporates additional VPET elements, including a brand new VPET stream and communication and information technology, to facilitate DAE students to articulate to other VPET programmes.
For students who have successfully completed* the DAE Programme, the qualification thus obtained is deemed comparable to the attainment of Level 2 standard in five subjects including Chinese Language and English Language in the Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education (HKDSE) Examination. For students who have also successfully completed* the Maths Plus complementary course, the qualification acquired under the Programme is comparable to the attainment of Level 2 standard in five subjects including Chinese Language, English Language and Mathematics in the HKDSE Examination.
* Successful completion of the DAE programme means attaining an overall pass and achieving 80% attendance or above for each of the eight courses and completing over 10 hours of Life-wide Learning activities. Successful completion of a course means attaining an overall pass and achieving 80% attendance or above for that subject.
