2.5 Specialist

With regard to the structures of the career promotion, the career growths of both groups are highly taken into consideration. To reach the standard of the career growth potential, the following are guidelines for those who would like to be promoted.

1. Academic group
There are job descriptions attached for each sub-group promotion. They are guidelines that supervisors and academic staff would apply for their levels of knowledge and potential which would be driven and developed for their career growth. This career growth would be assessed through the self-evaluation in all aspects of areas of responsibilities.

2. Academic support group, and administrative and support group.
The criteria for job characteristics, skills and qualifications have been consciously created for each career path level. This is to direct the right person into the right job.

To encourage the career paths of all kinds of staff, the evaluations for particular kinds of promotions would be applied to particular target groups which include academic, academic and support, and administrative and academic support. There are two basic kinds of promotions; normal and fast tracks.

Due to the career promotion, certification, working experiences, working performance, self-improvement and any kind of training would become parts of the criteria for the consideration. In other words, the qualifications of the candidates to be promoted might cover personalities and productive works in terms of both quantity and quality. According to the career promotion and job description, the criteria and directions have been cautiously standardized.
