Accredited Professional Development Programmes

Accredited PDP on Career and Life Development for Network Schools offered by Department of Curriculum and Instruction, The Education University of Hong Kong:

The project provides professional development programmes for schools’ senior management, Career teachers and other educators. Upon completion of specific accredited courses for key players in the project (e.g. project hub leaders and Career teachers), participants will be conferred university-issued qualifications (i.e. Certificates or Advanced Certificates) with levels of difficulty equivalent to QF5 and 6 respectively under the Qualification Framework in Hong Kong. The broad aim of the programmes is to equip school leaders and teachers in their own capacities to promote good practices of CLD under the HKBM framework.
