Award Scheme for Learning Experiences under Qualifications Framework opens for applications
     The 2024 Award Scheme for Learning Experiences under the Qualifications Framework (QF) will open for applications from tomorrow (March 15) 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 aims to encourage practitioners who have excelled themselves in continuous learning to broaden their horizons through engaging in learning activities held locally or around the world. These experiences will enable 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 "Together, go further". This theme signifies that the Award Scheme not only assists awardees in participating in learning activities worldwide but also supports them in achieving their career aspirations.

     Since its inception in 2013, the Award Scheme has attracted more than 2 300 applicants from different industries, over 700 of whom were awarded. Over 60 per cent of the awardees participated in learning activities outside Hong Kong, while approximately 40 per cent 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.
