The “Retired Athletes Transformation Programme”, organised by Culture, Sports and Tourism Bureau (CSTB) and administrated by HKACED, aims to facilitate retired athletes’ career development by providing them a platform to earn work experience, supplemented with on-job training and education subsidies for their academic enhancement. The programme encourages and subsidises schools and sports organisations to employ retired athletes to promote sports and nurture sports talents.
