Ministry of Education aims to accelerate the development of professional teaching materials for vocational education, including housekeeping, child and elderly care

Develop. Grow. Succeed.

According to the “14th five-year” vocational education planning for textbook reform, China will compile about 10,000 national vocational education planning textbooks, and guide on the provincial level as well. Planning teaching materials will highlight key points, supplement key areas, accelerate development in services, and manufacture essential to nation-building. In addition, China aims to develop teaching materials in areas that are essential to people’s livelihood but are in severe shortage, such as housekeeping, child and elderly care. The proposal clarified that these teaching materials should undergo strict scrutiny, and clear revision every three years. There should also be a clear strategy for choosing proper materials and exit mechanisms for unqualified ones.
