Level 1 Professional Development Program (PDP) for Career Practitioners

Invitation to participate in Level 1 Professional Development Program (PDP) for Career Practitioners

“CLAP for Youth @ JC” is Hong Kong’s first cross-sectoral support platform that helps students and non-engaged youth plan their futures. This project targets the development of an evidence-based intervention model, the setting up of five district service teams and a one-stop e-portal. A local professional development framework has also been established to provide a cross-profession career and life planning training for an elevation of planning, promotion and review of CLP service capacity, aiming at building a professional team of CLP career practitioners.

This training, which is free of charge, targets social workers / youth workers who have obtained an Associate Degree / Higher Diploma (in any discipline) or above (or equivalent qualifications). The 2.5-day Level 1 Cohort 31 training has been scheduled for April to May 2019, with details below.
