Vocational, tech schools benefit from int'l co-op

(China Daily)

10:47, November 07, 2012

Experts are calling for more international cooperation in the establishment of vocational and technical schools.

"China and the world should combine forces in running vocational and technical schools," said Wang Jiping, director of the Central Institute for Vocational and Technical Education, under the Ministry of Education.

"The priority in China's vocational education has been transferred to the pursuit of quality from the pursuit of largeness," Wang said.

"We (Chinese vocational schools) are borrowing advanced experiences from developed countries and are cooperating more in the management of schools."

Wang also said he believes China should provide help to countries and places that are in need.

"We are actually running the mission," he said. "For example, we help some areas in Africa build vocational schools, train officials and school heads and establish curriculum."

Wang said China is playing an increasingly important role in global vocational and technical education.

"A solid proof of that is that the third International Congress on Technical and Vocational Education and Training picked China as its conference site," Wang said. The event was held in Shanghai in May.
