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 35 training has been scheduled for September to October 2019, with details below.

The project encourages participants to attend all sessions in order to obtain a comprehensive and in-depth understanding of the concepts. Participants who have completed all four dimensions will be invited to participate in our Impact Assessment Study in around three months after the training ends. This study aims to understand participants’ views on and their application of the model/framework/artefact/concepts introduced in the program. Participants who have completed the survey will be awarded the Certificate of Attendance of Level 1 PDP for Career Practitioners co-issued by the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) and Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU). If you are unable to attend all sessions in this Cohort, please attend the makeup class of the concerned sessions in later Cohorts to complete your Level 1 attendance. We anticipate that the last Level 1 training will be scheduled for the end of this year, with only around three cohorts remaining before year end. In this connection, interested participants are most advised to attend all sessions of this cohort in case make-up class arrangement may not be available towards the end of this year.

We cordially invite all social workers/youth workers to consider enrolling for this training. For interested participants, please apply on or before 11 September 2019 (Wednesday) by clicking onto the following link: https://hkbuhk.ca1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_0GH5yllvdWVbOKN. Admission is on a first-come-first-served basis due to limited quota. If you are applying this cohort to attend the makeup class(es) of the missed dimension(s), please select the dimension(s) that you are going to attend in this training in the form. Successful applicants will be notified via email on or before 13 September 2019 (Friday).
