As the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on the job market remain, the Government is launching a subsidy scheme entitled “Support for Engineering, Architectural, Surveying, Town Planning and Landscape Sectors 2.0” (Support Measure 2.0) to encourage private organisations to employ graduates and assistant professionals.
Support Measure 2.0 provides employment opportunities to graduates and assistant professionals who have aspiration to obtain professional qualifications of the construction industry with a view to retaining talents and fostering the development of the professional sectors in the long run. A total of 1 700 subsidy places of two groups are available under Support Measure 2.0:
1) 550 subsidy places for Graduates (Architectural, Surveying, Town Planning and Landscape Sectors)
2) 1 150 subsidy places for Assistant Professionals (Engineering, Architectural, Surveying, Town Planning and Landscape Sectors)
Application period of Support Measure 2.0 commences on 18 June 2021 (Friday) and the deadlines are as tabulated:
|Graduates||30 November 2021 (Tuesday) *|

* Application deadline for Assistant Professional subsidy places is amended from 31 August 2021 to 30 November 2021.
