Community Care Fund Assistance Programme – Subsidy for Persons Holding Non-local Qualifications to Conduct Qualifications Assessment

There are views that though some grassroots hold higher non-local qualifications (including Hong Kong residents, arrivals from the Mainland and ethnic minorities migrated to Hong Kong who are holding non-local qualifications), they are engaged in lower-skilled jobs since they do not know whether their overall qualifications meet the standard of a particular level of qualification in Hong Kong. To individuals or households with financial difficulties, the additional cost for qualifications assessment may add to their burden.  The Community Care Fund provides subsidy for needy persons to apply for qualifications assessment for general purpose conducted by the Hong Kong Council for Accreditation of Academic and Vocational Qualifications, offering them chances for achieving upward social mobility if their non-local qualifications have been confirmed to meet the standard of a particular level of qualification in Hong Kong.
