Launch of CAT Centralised Database on Qualifications Register
In support of the implementation of the Credit Accumulation and Transfer (CAT) initiative by the Education Bureau (EDB), HKCAAVQ is pleased to announce the successful completion and launch of the CAT centralised database (CAT database) of CAT information and articulation arrangements with a dedicated search function, as an integral part of the publicly searchable Qualifications Register (QR). This CAT database will enhance not only the transparency and dissemination of credit transfer information and articulation arrangements between institutions and programmes but also the availability of CAT arrangements on the quality assured qualifications contained in the QR.
Funded by the Quality Enhancement Support Scheme, this CAT database has been constructed in due consultation with representatives from major stakeholder groups to ensure the applicability, relevancy, and user-friendliness of its search interface and the CAT information being disseminated. CAT database is an important QR initiative as well as a useful web-tool to minimise duplication of learning and facilitating the realisation of the Qualifications Framework’s policy directive in promoting life-long-learning.
Please access via the QR (www.hkqr.gov.hk) for this new CAT search by selecting “Credit Accumulation and Transfer” under “Search” Menu. Its main features include (a) a new CAT search landing page; (b) a new type of CAT (Recognition of Prior Learning Qualifications) (i.e. CAT(R)); (c) the addition of both receiving programmes and sending qualifications as new search criteria; and (d) a newly designed QR Record Details Page for CAT Arrangement.

To prepare for the launch of the Credit Accumulation and Transfer (CAT) centralised database on the Qualifications Register (QR), the QR web site (www.hkqr.gov.hk) will be temporarily suspended from 13 October to 14 October 2018.

A two-phase approach is adopted to adding hyperlinks to HKCAAVQ’s published accreditation reports to the QR Record Details page.
For Phase 1, a new “Accreditation Reports” page is added to the “Statistics and Reports” sub-menu item under “About Us” on the QR website. The new “Accreditation Reports” page provides a brief description of the summary accreditation reports published by HKCAAVQ and a hyperlink to the relevant webpage. Please click here to access the webpage.
For Phase 2, a hyperlink to HKCAAVQ’s published accreditation reports will be added to each individual QR Record Details page of qualifications accredited by HKCAAVQ (including those offered by PAA operators). This Phase is targeted for completion in October 2018.
