The Chinese University of Hong Kong has run the "Preparation for Principalship Course for Aspiring Principals (PFP)" since 2002 in order to help aspiring principals (APs) to attain the "Certification for Principalship (CFP)". With effect from the 2004/05 school year, APs have to attain the CFP, in addition to complying with the appointment conditions in force at the time, before they could be considered for appointment to principalship. To attain the CFP, APs must satisfy the following criteria within a two-year CFP process:
- successful completion of Needs Analysis for Aspiring Principals; NA
- successful completion of Preparation for Principalship Course for Aspiring Principals (PFP Course); and
- successful completion of the professional development portfolio.
The Education Bureau has accredited The Chinese University of Hong Kong to deliver the PFP Course in order to help participants to fulfil the second component of the CFP requirement.
The PFP Course is also accepted as a management training course required for promotion to the post of deputy heads (i.e., Principal Graduate Master/Mistress in secondary schools/Senior Primary School Master/Mistress in primary schools).
All serving teachers and educational practitioners with five or more years of teaching experience and a recognized teacher training qualification are eligible to apply.
At least one PFP Course will be delivered in the 2017/18 school year (1 September 2017 – 31 August 2018) and at least one PFP Course will be offered in the 2018/19 school year (1 September 2018 – 31 August 2019).
