Representatives of the Qualifications Framework Secretariat (QFS) were invited to introduce the concept of QF, the applications of the Specification of Competency Standards (SCS), as well as the mechanism of Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) and its benefits to the practitioners. Participants asked questions enthusiastically.
In the evening, QFS introduced to over 40 participants the main points of the Fashion SCS Draft, and encouraged them to express their opinion towards the SCS contents by filling in the online consultation questionnaire during the industry consultation period (i.e. by 31 July 2018).
