Plan released to aid vocational learning
The Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Finance issued a plan on improving the capacities of vocational school teachers during the 2017-20 period. According to the plan, the training of teachers will be the policy priority and to improve their capacities, cooperation between vocational schools and enterprises will be promoted. While vowing to earmark more funds, the central government will also encourage local governments to establish a long-term mechanism to ensure that adequate fiscal funds are available for training teachers. A project assessment and incentive mechanism will be set up to push the implementation of the plan, the Ministry of Education said. Regular inspection and assessment will be carried out to ensure vocational school teachers can be trained in an efficient way.
