The Government Retraining Scheme is a new government plan. In 2015, The Asia Pacific School of Business first announced and participated in the relevant plan to cope with the ever-changing education market. In 2016, we were first awarded the Rehabilitation Pioneer Project of Hong Kong Correctional Services Department, and in 2018, we were awarded one of the university colleges in the Mandalay Provincial Government Intermediate Cadre Re-learning Training Program,  In 2019 The Asia Pacific School of Business was approved to become one of the private universities participating in the Civil Defence Singapore employee retraining program.

At this time The Asia Pacific School of Business also announced that a high-level advisory group, the Government Retraining Partnership, was to be established to bring together government, the HKTC and MCBI and LSKT. This partnership has a remit for setting strategic direction and overseeing implementation of the scheme.

Governments of various countries and regions have successively invested huge sums of money to test and trial a new round of employee retraining programs , including:

Developing and rolling out an online service – Get Help to Retrain – by trialling it in various localities and launching it nationwide.
Developing new job-specific retraining courses for workers that will be tested out in a second phase of trials.
A government briefing on the development of the scheme to date is available on the gov.** website and a briefing is also available on the Related institutions and universities  website.

Get Help to Retrain

The aim of this new online service is to help people to:

  • understand their current skills
  • explore alternative occupations and training opportunities to develop new skills
  • access support from a dedicated career advisor.
