The "GCDF 職涯 GPS Scheme" is a career development facilitation service scheme provided by the Global Career Development Facilitators (GCDF) trained by the School of Continuing and Professional Studies (CUSCS) of The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK).


How does the Scheme help the young people?

The Scheme aims to provide interested students with guidance and assistance in planning or embarking on their career development, by making available to them the specialist service of the GCDFs. Participating students will yield valuable insights and understanding for career and life planning, while GCDFs will gain value-added exposure in career development facilitation under supervisory support.

Benefits for the participating students:
acquire better self-understanding
identify career interests
enhance motivation and goal setting towards development of greater career-related competencies with planning

What did the participating GCDFs gain from the Scheme?

“Through the Scheme I could apply the knowledge and skills learnt from the GCDF course to real situations. It not only provided me with a great opportunity to work with young adults on their career planning, but also enabled me to assist university students in understanding themselves further. I am glad to have joined this Scheme and look forward to more of similar opportunities.”

“The Scheme gave me a good opportunity to practise and improve my facilitation skills. I have also gained more understanding of the assessment tools, and how to base my feedback on the results of the assessments done. During the process, I deeply realised the importance of sincerity, empathy, and unconditional positive regard. My client thanked me for creating a safe and positive environment which encouraged her to think thoroughly. I am now more confident to deal with cases of greater complexity in the future.”
