Information Seminars and Guidance Workshops for Non-self-accrediting Providers of Continuing Education Fund (CEF) Courses

08 Oct 2018

HKCAAVQ is organising a series of information seminars and guidance workshops to support the implementation of Labour and Welfare Bureau’s enhancement measures. One of these enhancements requires that all CEF courses offered by non-self-accrediting providers registered before May 2008 must now be accredited by HKCAAVQ and uploaded onto the Qualifications Register, within 4 years from 1 April 2019, in order to maintain their CEF registration.

Information seminars

Information seminars will be held at the HKCAAVQ office starting from mid October 2018. The information seminars will cover the processes and procedures of the collective accreditation approach to be used as well as supports from HKCAAVQ.

Date and time of the information seminars together with the registration form can be accessed here.

Existing non-self-accrediting providers offering CEF courses registered before May 2008 should attend the information seminars.

Guidance workshops

HKCAAVQ will also organise guidance workshops for non-self-accrediting providers to introduce them to the accreditation standards and assess their readiness to seek accreditation. Details will be available at a later stage.

Collective accreditation approach timeline

Accreditation of CEF courses offered by non-self-accrediting providers registered before May 2008 will be conducted using a collective accreditation approach. This approach is tailored to courses of a similar nature grouped by their domain offered by the same or different course providers. The indicative timeline is as follows.

Domain of CEF course Accreditation timeframe
Business Services 3rd & 4th quarter of 2019
Language 1st & 2nd quarter of 2020
Tourism Industry 3rd quarter of 2020
Financial Services 4th quarter of 2020 & 1st quarter of 2021
Product & Digital Design 1st & 2nd quarter of 2021
Creative Industries 3rd quarter of 2021
Logistics 4th quarter of 2021
Interpersonal & Intrapersonal Skills for Workplace 1st quarter of 2022

Prospective CEF course providers interested in applying for accreditation of their courses may register with HKCAAVQ’s regular training activities to familiarise themselves with HKCAAVQ accreditation standards and procedures. For details, please click here.
