The Quality School Improvement Project (QSIP), established in 1998 by the Hong Kong Institute of Educational Research (HKIER) of the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK), endeavours to provide professional support for school improvements. Over the years, QSIP has evolved from a project-based programme to a school support organization that launches different programmes under the auspices of the Education Bureau as well as business sectors and private foundations. Besides, QSIP also tailor-makes self-financing programmes for individual schools and educational organizations. Since its establishment, QSIP has served more than 600 local schools including primary and secondary schools, kindergartens and special schools. The coverage of professional development services has even extended to the schools in the Mainland, Macau and Taiwan.
