A delegation led by Mr Ng Cher Pong, Chief Executive and Deputy Secretary of SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG) visited HKCAAVQ on 14 December 2016. SkillsFuture is a national organisation established by the Ministry of Education to promote lifelong learning by helping individuals make well-informed choices in education, training and careers; developing an integrated high-quality system of education and training and promoting employers recognition and career development based on skills and mastery.

As a new organisation SSG visited Hong Kong to learn from the experience of a number of Hong Kong agencies and education institutions, including HKCAAVQ. The Executive Director Ms Dorte Kristoffersen and two Deputy Executive Directors, Mr Robert Fearnside and Dr Sandra Wong welcomed the delegation. Dr Christina Ng, Head and Senior Registrar (Vocational and Professional Accreditation) and her staff presented to the delegation HKCAAVQ’s accreditation process that underpins the Hong Kong Qualifications Framework and our vocational and professional accreditation services. The representatives from SSG shared with us the role and emerging work of SSG. The meeting provided a good opportunity to exchange information in enhancing quality assurance in vocational and professional accreditation in the two jurisdictions.
