Professional Summary Description: I have been senior management and chief executive of a number of Non-governmental organisations (NGOs) before joining the education sector. During the 15 years in the NGO sector, I have helped the set-up of the mandatory registration system of social workers in Hong Kong. In the process, I have helped to devise a mechanism of recognising social work programmes (both in Hong Kong and in different continents), the graduates of which would then be eligible to become registered social workers. With the successful establishment of the statutory social workers registration system, I left the welfare sector to join the academic field.

With ample experience in professional accreditation of academic programmes, I was enlisted by the sole accreditation body in Hong Kong, the Hong Kong Council for Academic Accreditation (former name of the Hong Kong Council for Accreditation of Academic and Vocational Qualifications (HKCAAVQ)), and joined it as the registrar/senior registrar. In the five years I worked in the Council, Hong Kong was introducing the Hong Kong Qualifications Framework for its education provision, with due recognition of the importance of vocational training alongside with the academic system. I helped the setting up of the Vocational Education Assessment Division to meet the challenge, and preparation of different guidelines to support the newly introduced accreditation model.

After gaining experience in the external accreditation sector, I left the HKCAAVQ to help the establishment of Tung Wah College, to become a self-financing tertiary education institution. As one of the senior management of the Tung Wah College, I had to help work out the organisational structure with the necessary academic decision-making committees, set up the staffing structure and system with clear lines of accountability, and ensure the College was safe and well-equipped for the delivery of quality tertiary education. After two years of preparation, the Tung Wah College gained Institutional Review status from the HKCAAVQ, and was successful in winning recognition by the government to become a qualified degree-granting institution in Hong Kong.
The experience in setting up the Tung Wah College provided me with meaningful challenges in setting up quality systems while shouldering the responsibility to win the confidence of external assessor and government over the effectiveness of the systems. In the past three years, I am the Director of Quality Assurance and Accreditation Office of the Vocational Training Council (VTC). The VTC is a major vocational education provider in Hong Kong with a student population of 60,000 and with locations at more than 15 campuses. The Director is responsible for monitoring and enhancing the internal quality assurance practices and steering and supporting the programme teams in the external accreditation exercises.

With the rich experience I gained in the past years in organisational management and academic quality assurance, I am interested to join in quality audit work and provide consultancy and advice in the development of academic systems and preparation of guidelines to support the systems and processes.
