Message from Director
Welcome to CUSCS Website!
CUSCS continues to make steady progress with partnerships well established with collaborators, learners and colleagues. The School offers a wide range of academic programmes catering to the changing needs of diverse groups of people in the Hong Kong community. We always take pride in providing quality continuing education programmes for adult learners, full-time programmes for young adults, as well as tailor-made corporate training programmes for working adults in the government, NGOs, and medical, commercial and educational sectors. It is a blessing for CUSCS to continue our mission to maximize synergy and enrich learning experiences through various modes of delivery: face-to face, hybrid and distance learning.
Launched in May 2014, the Global Career Development Facilitator (GCDF) - Hong Kong Programme has been very well received in the community. Over 780 professionals from the fields of education, administration and management, human resources, training, and the helping professions have finished the 6-day face-to-face studies; and about half of them have already gained the globally-recognised qualification certified by the National Board for Certified Counsellors (NBCC), USA. The GCDFs are not only getting ready to make a difference in their own career development, but they have also learned new skills to facilitate the career development of those they serve.
As we celebrated our 50th anniversary in 2015, the School launched a variety of new certificate and diploma award programmes as well as short courses. These included “Teaching and Learning Chinese Ink Painting”, “Opening up Sales Channels in China”, “Understanding Aviation Operations and Management”, “Bilingual Presentation Skills for Corporate Communications”, “First Aid Kit for Managing Your Emotions” and “Chinese Medicine for Food and Longevity” – each helping learners advance their knowledge and enrich their lives, in different domains and on different dimensions of experience.
For young adults, CUSCS offers the Diploma Programme in Foundation Studies (DFS) and Higher Diploma Programmes to help them equip themselves for further education. The School also offers Top-up Undergraduate Degree Programmes in collaboration with renowned Australian universities in various disciplines to provide more articulation opportunities for sub-degree graduates to pursue undergraduate education.
For working adults, CUSCS has designed courses for the HKSAR Government departments and corporate clients in various sectors in areas of reading, speaking, writing and presentation skills in Chinese, Putonghua or English. More training workshops have been conducted on personal wellness, effective communication skills, mediation skills, and supervisory skills. We are happy to continue serving our corporate clients in the years to come as we face new global challenges and needs in the workplace and personal development.
