Education services for non-Chinese speaking (NCS) students


The Education Bureau (EDB) is committed to assisting all non-Chinese speaking (NCS) students in adapting to the local education system and integrating into the community as early as possible.

Some NCS students encounter learning difficulties and adjustment problems when they study in local schools. Greater care and help from schools, teachers and parents are required so that these students can adapt to the local education system and integrate into the community quickly. EDB has provided various support services to school administrators, teachers and parents to cater for the common learning and adaptation needs of the NCS students. This information platform provides an electronic channel through which school administrators, teachers, parents and the public caring about the education of NCS students can obtain useful information and related resources more quickly and directly.
