Recognising the importance of Qualifications Framework (QF) in maintaining a quality workforce, the Chief Executive announced in the 2014 Policy Address to establish a dedicated fund of $1 billion, namely the QF Fund, to provide a steady source of income to support the sustainable development and implementation of QF. Established on 1 September 2014, the QF Fund is an endowment fund to support different schemes/initiatives for the sustainable development and implementation of QF, including but not limited to the following two areas:
- Designated Support Schemes for QF (with the previous "Qualifications Framework Support Schemes" incorporated and some operating parameters relaxed); and
- Funding for ITACs, QF-related studies or projects and public education.
The Education Bureau has set up a Steering Committee on QF Fund to advise the Secretary for Education on the policy, strategy and administration of the QF Fund.
