Calling for Mentees for the HKIQEP Graduate Environmental Mentoring Scheme (GEMS)

Calling for Mentees for the
HKIQEP Graduate Environmental Mentoring Scheme (GEMS)

Dear HKIQEP Friends,

On behalf of the Hong Kong Institute of Qualified Environmental Professionals Limited (HKIQEP), we would like to call for 2019 or 2020 fresh graduates employed through the “Green Employment Scheme: Graduate Subsidy Programme” under the Environment Bureau, to be Mentees under our Graduate Environmental Mentoring Scheme (GEMS).

The GEMS will provide to Green Employment Scheme recipients, free of charge:

  • voluntary personal mentorship by HKIQEP Professional Members or Fellows during the period they receive subsidy from the Government (up to a maximum of 18 months); and
  • guidance on the compilation of logbooks that document their environmental experiences and outcomes gained through the on-the-job training under the Green Employment Scheme with reference to the Professional Assessment (Part II) covered by the HKIQEP Qualification Process.

The complexity of our environmental problems implies a great need for well-rounded on-the-job training for our environmental graduates. By providing mentorship, networking and guidance through GEMS, HKIQEP hopes to ride on the government’s financial support to help jump-start and guide the fresh graduates through the Government Subsidy Scheme towards a successful and meaningful environmental career.

If you or your friends are GES participants and interested to join the GEMS programme, please complete the online enrollment form through https://form.jotform.com/HKIQEP/mentee-registration-for-GEMS. Should you have any enquiries, please do not hesitate to contact us by email at development@hkiqep.org or by calling (852) 6898 1507.

Thank you for your kind attention and for your ongoing support of the HKIQEP.

 

Your sincerely,

 

Dr. Jeanne Ng

Chairman

Hong Kong Institute of Qualified Environmental Professionals Limited (HKIQEP)
