Free Secondary Vocational Education Available Soon     09/28/2012 09:54

Recently, the twelfth Five-year Plan for vocational education in Dongguan was released. Based on the outline, the aim is to create special majors echoing local industries, such as construction engineering, automobile, electronics, clothing and other integral industries. 

Early in 2011, four vocational and technical schools were either closed or combined and schools under new names have continued to operate since then. 

On September 25 of this year, six public secondary vocational schools got their plaques revealed. They are the Dongguan Textile and Clothing School, the Dongguan Automobile Technical School, the Dongguan Light Industry School, the Dongguan Electromechanical Engineering School, the Dongguan Electronic Commerce School and the Dongguan Furniture School.

Yesterday, the Bureau of Education of Dongguan Municipality instructed these schools to accelerate resource integration and pay the greatest attention to the development of special majors. 

In order to cultivate more and more skilled talent, Dongguan will develop a vocational education-based talent strategy. Free secondary vocational education, the highlight of the strategy, will be available very soon.
