19 young people apprenticing over ten weeks mentored by SHKP staff
Sun Hung Kai Properties Limited (SHKP) and Breakthrough staged a ceremony today to announce the 2015 Modern Apprenticeship Programme (MAP). SHKP Executive Director and Chief Financial Officer Patrick K W Chan and Breakthrough General Secretary Dr Leung Wing-tai hosted the ceremony and depicted the programme by placing matchboxes on a small panel at centre stage, representing the two organizers livening up the programme and brightening the lives of apprentices and mentors. Also present were the apprentices, their parents, SHKP staff and representatives of the organizers. The apprentices will receive on-the-job training over the coming ten weeks with SHKP staff acting as mentors to provide career guidance and share work and life experience. The Programme, sponsored by SHKP, is meant to help participating youngsters understand their aspirations and capabilities so they can prepare for the future.
