 Mr Robert Fearnside, Deputy Executive Director, and Dr Christina Ng, Head of Vocational Accreditation and Development, joined a delegation of the Education Bureau (EDB) to visit New Zealand in July 2015. During the visit, Mr Fearnside and Dr Ng participated in the working group meeting with EDB and the New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) to discuss plans for referencing the Hong Kong Qualifications Framework (HKQF) and the New Zealand Qualifications Framework (NZQF) and other quality assurance collaborative projects.

Apart from attending the working group meeting, Mr Fearnside and Dr Ng also visited Service IQ, the industry training organisation (ITO) for the aviation, hospitality, retail, travel, tourism, museums and wholesale sectors in New Zealand to learn about the development of vocational qualifications and how the ITOs work to meet the local industry training needs.
