Through continued investment, the People's Republic of China (PRC) has already developed a comprehensive technical and vocational education and training (TVET) system, including a number of excellent schools that are able to adjust themselves to the demands of the market. Many teachers have demonstrated the ability to adopt new skills and competencies to help the country prepare for a growing population of capable students. However, the system faces several challenges in ensuring that TVET services keep up with the pace and scale of economic transformation. One major hurdle is how to increase efficiency and responsiveness of the TVET system. Unlike general education, the TVET subsector involves a wide range of stakeholders who provide policy directions to ensure that the skills demand is met as much as possible. As the PRC's economy continues to grow, the effectiveness of the TVET system will be measured in terms of boosting employability and work competency.
