In 1954, the Government formulated plans to expand primary school education to cope with the explosion in population. Therefore, the training colleges offered one-year primary school teachers’ course. Graduates of the one-year primary school teachers’ course were Primary School Master (PSM) ; graduates of the two-year teachers’ course were Certificate Master (CM). The former could only teach in local primary schools, and lacked of promotion opportunities ; the latter could teach in both primary and junior forms of secondary schools, and had promotion opportunities. Primary School Master had to complete three-year programme of the Evening School of Higher Chinese Studies, in order to transfer as a Certificate Master.
