The State Council issued a circular on Feb 13, detailing the reform plan for China’s vocational education to cultivate high-quality workers and technical personnel.
The circular said that by 2022, 50 high-level advanced vocational schools with 150 key majors should be established, and a national standard system of vocational education that covers most industries and meets international advanced levels will be created. Enterprises will show more willingness to participate in vocational education, and teachers with both theoretical and practical skills will account for over half of the total number of professional teachers.
