Authors: Leung, Mitzi

Issue Date: 2000
Publisher: Hong Kong : Vocational Training Council ; IVETA
Abstract: Whether it is called Core Skills (UK) ; Employability Skills (Canada) ; Essential Skills (New Zealand) ; Workplace Know-how (USA) or Project and Transfer Oriented Training (Germany), globally we have been concerned with integrating key competencies with learning outcomes to provide the workforce with potential employees that are employable in day one. The Department of Business Administration, HKIVE (Tsing Yi) supports this view by incorporating ''the Practice Firm Concept'' into course delivery, with the belief that it enhances the quality of teaching and fosters life-long learning skills. The purpose of this paper is to illustrate how this Concept has been developed and incorporated in our business curriculum.
