China Moving Towards Dual Track Education System

by swisscham in General Interest

Embassy of Switzerland in China composed a report on Chinese dual track education system. Chinese Ministry of Education announced an upcoming education system reform which places vocational education at its heart. A dual track education system based on separate entrance test & admission system to tertiary level education will be established for students to decide at the age of 16. Transitional options are offered at both upper secondary level and at the tertiary level. Local universities (provincial / municipal level) are encouraged to reshape themselves into Universities of Applied Sciences to offer bachelor and professional master degree to students in VET track aiming for higher education. Vocational education is to be more integrated into local economy and industry, more engagement from private sector is expected. Government commits to further increase investment in vocational education which includes free VET education at upper secondary level and scholarship opportunities for oversea studies. Intergovernmental dialogue on vocational education policy is desired by the Ministry of Education and a dialogue mechanism has started with Germany and the Netherlands.
