The question “Who will be a skilled worker” needs to be solved systematically

For a long time, the topic of “general job diversion” has always aroused a large range of social discussion, arousing some parents’ educational anxiety.Behind the discussion, however, is another question worth asking: where will the skilled workers come from in China, which is still industrialising?Vocational education is not well recognized at present.On the one hand, this situation is related to the source of students, training mode and training quality of vocational education. On the other hand, some young people prefer free and flexible work rather than entering factories for the consideration of working conditions, skill improvement and career return.Skilled workers are an indispensable and important force in the transformation and upgrading of China’s economic structure. The growth and flow of a large number of labor population are also related to the lights of thousands of homes and social stability.At present, we must think systematically about the source, training and development of skilled workers from the top-level design.The stone of another mountain can attack jade.Some countries with developed manufacturing and vocational education provide multiple “backflow” routes while diverting students earlier.For example, in Singapore, students have to go through “diversion” when they graduate from primary school and junior middle school, which strengthens the position of vocational education as post-secondary education and ensures the quantity and quality of students in vocational education.Teaching students in accordance with their characteristics, minimizing the dropout rate and waste of human resources, has also strongly supported the economic transformation of host countries.At present, although China’s economic restructuring and upgrading demand for highly skilled personnel increased, but enterprises still face the problem of “recruitment difficulties”.In the survey of some colleges and universities that the author participated in in the past two years, it can be found that only about 30% of students majoring in manufacturing work in manufacturing enterprises after graduation.Of the 100 most underemployed occupations released by the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security in February, 43 were in manufacturing-related occupations, a phenomenon that has persisted since the ranking was released in the third quarter of 2019.At present, China’s skilled workers lack, its main supply should still be secondary vocational education.Of course, the level of economic development and talent needs of different regions, to a certain extent, reasonable planning of the proportion of general employment.In addition, we should pay more attention to how to train students and their development and motivation.After the diversion of training quality and development channels and other problems are solved, not only can avoid “one examination for life”, the anxiety, stratification and other problems brought by it are also easily solved.If we can accelerate the diversified development of education, give children more opportunities to teach according to their aptitude, the separation will become the “independent choice” based on the characteristics of students rather than the “secondary choice” after being eliminated, and it will truly realize the “equal importance” of the general post.This is related to another question: what kind of talents should vocational education cultivate?According to the relevant research that the author participated in, after the transformation and upgrading, the new production conditions require employees to have at least two aspects of ability: first, on the basis of mastering specialized skills, they have certain comprehensive ability to identify and solve systemic problems independently;Secondly, I can better adapt to the uncertain working environment and content, and have the ability of continuous learning and development.In other words, industrial transformation and upgrading needs specialized talents whose knowledge orientation and ability structure should meet diversified job requirements.This ability no longer belongs to a certain occupation, but the common foundation of many occupations. This basic ability is a transferable ability, which enables workers to quickly adapt to future changes and smoothly carry out subsequent career development.Recently, the Ministry of Education has clearly proposed the diversified development of secondary vocational education, and the “vocational education college entrance examination” is also being vigorously promoted.The former enables secondary vocational students to have the ability to obtain employment, have advantages in entering school and have access to development, while the latter directly promotes the formation of the integrated training mode of middle and high education in vocational education.”The 14th Five-year Plan for Vocational Skills Training” put forward clear requirements on improving the vocational development channels of skilled personnel.Vertically, explore to break the current “ceiling” and “invisible door”, form the professional skill level ladder of skilled talents, explore the “new eight” vocational skill level system;Horizontally, we should explore and realize the development of skilled personnel and specialized technical personnel.At the beginning of this year, the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security also put forward a series of policies on vocational education reform and skills incentives, but the key is how to implement them.When policies are implemented, outdated social concepts will be updated.When workers become “respectable as well as respectable”, the source of skilled workers will no longer be a problem, and their cultivation and development will form a virtuous cycle.To source | Guangming Daily micro knitting | Zhao Lisheng statement: this article, all peer originator if there are sources of errors or infringe upon the lawful rights and interests of you, you can through the mail or WeChat contact us, we will be handled in a timely manner.Email address:;Wechat id: Jiupai6688 (Note to add and withdraw)
