Award Scheme for Learning Experiences under Qualifications Framework opens for applications
     The 2023 Award Scheme for Learning Experiences under the Qualifications Framework (QF) will open for applications from tomorrow (March 17) until May 31. Practitioners from 23 industries implementing the QF (see Annex) are welcome to apply.

     A spokesman for the Education Bureau said that the Award Scheme aimed to encourage practitioners who had excelled themselves in continuous learning to broaden their horizons through engaging in learning activities held locally or around the world, enabling them to keep abreast of the latest developments of the industry and extend their exposure and networks, thereby realising their personal and career goals. The theme for the Award Scheme this year is "Equipping you and me for 15 years. Take off!", coinciding with the 15th anniversary of the Hong Kong QF.

     Since its inception in 2013, the Award Scheme has attracted more than 2 000 applicants from different industries, over 630 of whom were awarded. Nearly 60 per cent of the awardees participated in overseas learning activities, while some 40 per cent were engaged in local learning activities. The Award Scheme subsidises practitioners to participate in learning activities and helps reinforce their conviction in lifelong learning. Through continuous learning, they are able to upgrade their knowledge and skills, become lifelong-learning role models for their respective industries, and help promote the QF.

     The spokesman added that the learning activities in which practitioners could participate under the Award Scheme include competitions, seminars, sharing sessions, exhibitions, and study tours. Awardees engaging in local learning activities would receive an award of $10,000 while those engaging in learning activities outside Hong Kong would receive an award of $30,000. In view of the full resumption to normalcy of society, large-scale industry events were being resumed locally and overseas. Practitioners were encouraged to seize the opportunity to apply for the Award Scheme.
