Abstract: The Vocational Training Council (VTC) is undergoing a transformation that has reshaped many aspects of its organization; in particular, the course design and the way these courses are delivered. This paper presents a case study of the planning and design of a typical part-time vocational course curriculum at the Hong Kong Institute of Vocation Education (HKIVE). It outlines the considerations that the course team has to face. First, the aims of the Higher Certificate and Higher Diploma courses are highlighted. The major influence on the course aims for the curriculum, the social and economic efficiency factor, is discussed. A further aim, the learnercentered consideration, is identified. Given clear aims, goals and objectives, the design of the course structure proceeds. Subsequently, a suite of curriculum is proposed.
