Excerpt

Lifelong learning in Hong Kong has moved from the margins to the mainstream. It is now at the centre of Hong Kong’s education reform agenda. The title of a recent Education Commission Report — Learning for Life, Learning Through Life (September 2000) — is indicative of this fact.

The primary focus of this book is on one facet of lifelong education: continuing and professional education (CPE) opportunities for Hong Kong adults. Though as several of the contributors to this book point out, continuing and professional learning (CPL) may be a more appropriate concept for the future. The book attempts to give a profile of CPE in Hong Kong and to extrapolate from current activities to predict possible future developments. The book is grounded in the experience of practitioners in the School of Professional and Continuing Education, the University of Hong Kong (HKU SPACE), but is not just an account of our work. A number of frameworks and perspectives are offered on the issues. The book comprises three parts.
