Teacher Education In Hong Kong

A Unique Place for Quality Teacher Education

Hong Kong Institute of Education Hong Kong

Established in 1994 upon the foundation of 65 years of teacher training by the former Colleges of Education, the Hong Kong Institute of Education (HKIEd) is the only University Grants Committee funded institution dedicated solely to the upgrading and professional development of teacher education in Hong Kong.
In October 1997, the Institute moved to its new campus in Tai Po. Additional facilities such as the HKIEd HSBC Early Childhood Learning Centre and the HKIEd Jockey Club Primary School, founded on the campus in 2001 and 2002 respectively, demonstrate innovative practices and provide support for our student teachers.
After years of intensive upgrading and continuous developments, the Institute was granted “self-accrediting” status in 2004. Currently, we provide master and undergraduate degree, post-graduate diploma, certificate and a range of in-service programmes to around 7, 000 pre-service students and servingPhoto teachers.
As the largest teacher education provider, our focus remains on teacher education. Our programmes reflect the integration of subject knowledge with pedagogy and teaching skills, and our academic planning processes ensure that the programmes meet and respond to the future needs of teachers. Our research endeavours are oriented towards projects which are applicable and relevant to the local education context. Our partnerships and school support are geared towards needy areas and our collaborative networks expand beyond geographic and disciplinary boundaries.
Teachers are an invaluable resource within the education system. At the HKIEd, we are leading the challenge to nurture a generation of professionally trained graduate teachers who will support Hong Kong’s transformation into a knowledge-based society. Creative, energetic and committed, these teachers will serve the more than 2, 000 early childhood, primary and secondary schools in Hong Kong as agents of change, facilitating and implementing education reforms that will make a profound and lasting impact on the quality of our society.
