Established in 1994 and with a heritage of 70 years of teacher training dating to the former colleges of education, the Hong Kong Institute of Education (HKIEd) is the only University Grants Committee-funded institution dedicated solely to professional teacher education in Hong Kong. The HKIEd was formally established by statute in April 1994 - upon recommendation by the Education Commission in 1992 - by uniting the former Northcote College of Education, Grantham College of Education, Sir Robert Black College of Education, the Hong Kong Technical Teachers' College and the Institute of Language in Education.
In October 1997, the Institute moved to its new campus in Tai Po. Its state-of-the-art facilities includes the Mong Man Wai Library, Shu Wah Computer Centre, Arthur Samy Language Learning Centre, Croucher Science Laboratory, HY Cheung Sports Hall, Pengximing Chinese Arts and Culture Resource Studio, … just to name a few. In addition, a kindergarten and a local primary school, namely the HKIEd HSBC Early Childhood Learning Centre and the HKIEd Jockey Club Primary School, were established in 2001 and 2002 respectively. The two of them have jointly provided excellent avenues for our staff and students who can contribute innovative practices pertaining to early childhood and primary education. more details : http://study-hongkong.info/
