The team set up the Youth Academy for Special Educational Needs (YASEN) to respond to the global trend of, and local concern about, continuing education for persons with disabilities. The SEN school leavers receive lifelong learning opportunities on the University campus to develop 21st century skills and competences beyond schools. The Education Bureau and heads of special schools highly commended and supported the initiative. The success was multidimensional. The project tasks included course delivery, e-learning, SEN YouTube, mentorship, seminars, empirical studies and resource development. The training benefitted over 3,000 participants, including the SEN youths, pre-service teachers, parents and community helpers. The concerted effort among academics and community helpers created a synergic effect in course design and delivery. It sheds lights on course development, teacher education and policy changes. YASEN provides a successful and sustainable model of continuing education and
