Vocational Language

Vocational language refers to the language required for effective communication in a vocational context. Our vocational language courses aim to help learners develop their reading, writing, speaking and listening skills for their vocational needs. They cover language skills training useful for various career aspects:

  • In the pre-stage, learners may need help during the job application process, which necessitates a training for CV writing, interview preparation and other related skills.
  • During work, learners may need to use specialised language including technical terms in an industry to handle the work, which can be acquired through our discipline-specific language courses such as English/ Chinese for vocational purposes. Improving workplace communication skills (e.g. speech articulation, negotiation and presentation skills) is also a focus of our courses, which will be imperative to learners' daily business correspondence.

Our comprehensive training will prepare learners to become competent candidates who can join the workforce readily with an adequate command of vocational language.
