THE INTEGRATION OF VOCATIONAL EDUCATION & TRAINING AND HIGHER EDUCATION AT NTU IS NOT JUST AN ADMINISTRATIVE CONVENIENCE OR HISTORICAL ACCIDENT, MR SPEAKER. I AM INFORMED THAT THE UNIVERSITY IS FULLY COMMITTED TO THE PHILOSOPHY OF LIFELONG LEARNING. ALSO, THE INTEGRATION ACROSS THE SECTORS ENABLES THE UNIVERSITY TO HAVE A GREATER CLIENT FOCUS. MR SPEAKER, I AM PLEASED TO SAY THAT THE UNIVERSITY IS ABLE TO OFFER ITS STUDENTS COURSES RANGING FROM CERTIFICATE LEVEL TO DOCTORATES. ADDITIONALLY, IT OFFERS A RANGE OF NON-AWARD COURSES FOR THOSE IN THE COMMUNITY WHO WANT TO CONTINUE TO LEARN AND TO DEVELOP A VARIETY OF SKILLS BUT ARE NOT INTERESTED IN FORMAL UNIVERSITY ACCREDITATION. 18
