Gala Dinner 2015

​On 17 September 2015, HKCAAVQ held the major celebration of its silver jubilee, the 25th Anniversary Gala Dinner with 150 guests. The support from key stakeholders contributed to the success of the evening.

Mr Eddie Ng Hak-kim, SBS, JP, Secretary for Education, was invited as the Guest-of-Honour. In his speech to the guests, Mr Ng said that HKCAAVQ has grown from humble beginnings to establishing itself as a nationally and globally recognised independent quality assurance body. He emphasised the importance of HKCAAVQ's development of a robust quality assurance mechanism underpinning the Qualifications Framework, while also acting as a gatekeeper to safeguard the quality of learning programmes and qualifications.

The Honourable Martin Liao, then Chairman of HKCAAVQ in taking stock of past achievements reiterated HKCAAVQ’s commitment to contributing to the quality of education and training in Hong Kong and congratulated the new Chairman Dr Alex Chan as his successor.

HKCAAVQ also presented to all guests its 25th Anniversary publication titled “Future Directors of Quality Assurance: Perspective from 10 Agencies”, which has gathered valuable insights from QA agencies from all around the world on future direc­tions and challenges in quality assurance.
