The Education Department (教育署 and 教育司署 before 1983) was responsible for education matters in the territory, with the exception of post-secondary and tertiary education. In 2003, the department was abolished and a new bureau, the Education and Manpower Bureau (教育統籌局 abbreviated EMB) was formed. In July 2007, the manpower portfolio was transferred to the new Labour and Welfare Bureau by newly re-elected Chief Executive Donald Tsang.
The bureau was formerly housed at the Former French Mission Building.
The bureau mainly consists of six branches, which are responsible for different policies.
- Further & Higher Education Branch
- Planning, Infrastructure and School Places Allocation Branch
- Professional Development & Special Education Branch
- School Development & Administration Branch
- Curriculum and Quality Assurance Branch
- Corporate Services Branch
The bureau also oversees two child agencies: the University Grants Committee Secretariat and the Working Family and Student Financial Assistance Agency.
The Education System includes: Kindergarten Education, Primary and Secondary School Education, Special Education, Post-secondary Education, and other Education and Training.
