Preparation for Principalship Course for Aspiring Principals

With effect from the 2004/05 school year, Aspiring Principals (APs) have to attain the Certification for Principalship (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: 
          1. successful completion of Needs Analysis for Aspiring Principals (NA);  
          2. successful completion of Preparation for Principalship Course for Aspiring Principals (PFP Course); and  
          3. 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).
