Briefing on Development of Specification of Competency Standards-based and Vocational Qualifications Pathway Programmes [Webinar]


Under the Hong Kong Qualifications Framework (HKQF), Industry Training Advisory Committees (ITACs) or Cross-Industry Training Advisory Committee (CITAC), consisting of representatives of employers, employees, professional bodies and regulatory bodies of the relevant industries, have been set up by the Education Bureau on industry or sector basis to serve as a platform for stakeholders to put the QF into implementation and to exchange views on the training needs and manpower development for respective industries or sectors.

The primary task of ITACs/CITAC is to draw up competency standards in respect of key functional areas of the industries concerned (referred to as the Specification of Competency Standards (SCS)). SCS sets out the skills, knowledge and competency standards required of the practitioners to perform various job functions in industries effectively. It serves as useful benchmarks and references for education and training providers to develop SCS-based Programmes and Vocational Qualifications Pathway (VQP) Programmes to meet the needs of the industries.

HKCAAVQ is offering a two-hour online briefing in June 2021 to familiarise operators with the principles governing the design and development of SCS-based and VQP Programmes.

✓ Develop SCS-based and VQP Programmes.

Key Topics
