VET Seminar

The second seminar, Meeting Industry Training Needs – The New Zealand Experience, was co-organised with the Qualifications Framework Secretariat (QFS) on 6 January 2016 at Central Government Offices. Mr. Dean Minchington, CEO of ServiceIQ in New Zealand was invited to be the keynote speaker to share with around 150 participants, coming from ITACs and training providers, the roles of Industry Training Organisations in New Zealand, the approaches used by Service IQ in qualification design and assessment of vocational training to meet industry needs.

After the sharing from Mr Minchington, a panel discussion session on the topic “Riding on the ServiceIQ experience: How the Industry Training Advisory Committee (ITACs) can work closely with the training providers” was conducted. Representatives from QFS, ITACs, and training providers were invited to share their views on the development of vocational training in Hong Kong, the roles of ITACs and the possible collaboration with training providers. Members of the audience also actively participated in the fruitful discussions.
