  • induction training -- new recruits at Administrative Officer rank will receive various training in law, media skills, language and personal development in their first two years of service;
  • post-probation training -- on completion of probation, officers who joined the Service at Administrative Officer rank will be sent to renowned universities overseas for training;

  • National Studies programmes and Mainland familiarization visits -- to enhance Grade Members' understanding of the latest developments in the Mainland, they are encouraged to participate in the National Studies programmes and familiarization visits to the Mainland which the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government jointly organises with Mainland institutions or organisations;
