Initially, the department was referred to as the Proffessional Studies Department, wherein students would be admitted from Form Four and Form Six. Students joining the college with an O'Level certificate would pursue a four year course while those joining the college with A'Level certificate pursued a three year course.

Then, the department only offered pedagogical courses to students admitted by other departments in the college. In 1988, the name of the department was changed from "Professional Studies Department" to "Education Department".
