Traditionally, hybrid learning is defined as an education programme which combines traditional face-to-face classroom instruction with online learning. Having implemented hybrid learning for a decade, educators continue investigate hybrid learning and integrate new elements in the model. Under the Quality Enhancement Grant Scheme awarded by Education Bureau of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, Caritas Bianchi College of Careers and Caritas Institute of Higher Education aim to integrate placement programme into formal curriculum so as to provide a holistic education with the support of an internal developed system in the two colleges. This paper review the importance of placement programme, and the necessity of cultivating students' practical ability and employability to avoid employers' bias against the fresh graduate students in Hong Kong. This paper also shares the experience in developing and integrating the placement programme in the Placement Information System; as well as reviews various difficulties and related issues in implementing the placement programme at the two colleges.
