In the context of the construction of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, Guangdong lifelong education qualification framework can be co-built with the developed qualification framework of Hong Kong, China. According to the research, conclusions can be drawn that Through the establishment of a common mechanism, study of standard experiences, and the development of local advantages, such a cooperative docking can be achieved. This would also ensure the establishment of a security mechanism jointly composed of internal self-assessment, external professional security, and stakeholder security, as well as enhance the modernization of education in Mainland China and optimize Hong Kong’s talent and industrial structure. This would in turn help build the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, and provide practical experience for the construction of China’s national qualifications framework.
