Initiatives to Foster Chinese TVET and TVET Teacher Training

Currently, the Chinese vocational education system experiences several extensive reforms. Technical and vocational education and training (TVET) is increasingly seen as the key for solving future problems. Thus, the systems needs to provide answers to questions like the possibilities of the future work life and new working structures and also questions like the implementation of a sustainable development. But already today the vocational education system is faced with serious challenges. Highly skilled workers are needed in several working fields and also the complex working systems and the newly developed market systems demand for new solutions and concepts for their vocational training. Last but not least the globalization is an important topic in the field of the Chinese vocational education. Thus, TVET in China needs to fit the needs of the market, the goals of the Chinese state and the international standards. These challenges require new approaches and initiatives to foster Chinese TVET and to focus on TVET teacher training as one particularly important area.
