Event Highlights

HKCAAVQ hosted its Annual Event 2018, themed “shaping the future @ 10th anniversary of Qualifications Framework”, in Holiday Inn Golden Mile, Tsim Sha Tsui on 13 November 2018  (Tuesday).

The event, co-organised with the Education Bureau, aimed at promoting the understanding and appreciation by key stakeholders of the development of Hong Kong Qualifications Framework (HKQF). One of the highlights of the event was the launch of the Credit Accumulation and Transfer (CAT) centralised database on the Qualifications Register (QR), officiated by Mr Kevin Yeung JP, Secretary for Education; Professor Peter Yuen, Member of the Project Advisory Group (PAG) of the CAT Database; Ir Dr Alex Chan, Council Chairman of HKCAAVQ; and Mr Albert Chow, Executive Director of HKCAAVQ.  The launching ceremony was then followed by an interactive dialogue between PAG members and a Focus Group learner representative. A live demonstration of the CAT database was also in place.

“In Dialogue with Major Stakeholders of HKQF” was also another highlights of the Annual Event. The dialogue featured speakers including Professor Reggie Kwan, Vice President (Academic) of the Open University of Hong Kong, Professor Gilbert Fong MH, Provost of the Hang Seng University of Hong Kong, Ms Carrie Leung, Chief Executive Officer of the Hong Kong Institute of Bankers, Mr Anthony Chan, Expert of HKQF, Professor Thomas Wong JP, Dean of School of Nursing and Healthcare of Hong Kong Nang Yan College of Higher Education. Facilitated by Mr Wilfred Wong JP, Managing Director of RESOLUTIONS HR & Business Consultancy Company Limited, also Council Member of HKCAAVQ, major stakeholder representatives shared their views on the roles and functions of quality assurance in the development of QF in the academic and professional sectors. The discussion also touched on the impact of a wide range of issues on the development of QF, such as policy development, the peer review model in accreditation, and promotion of a positive quality assurance culture in the education sector.

Before closing, certificates were also presented to appointed/re-appointed HKCAAVQ Specialists. The session has become a major component of the annual event in recent years as HKCAAVQ holds our Specialists in high regard, whose participation is crucial to HKCAAVQ’s accreditation work.

The Annual Event was attended by over 300 representatives from the education and training sector, as well as Specialists and partnering organizations.
