Work-Based Education and Training
This chapter discusses work-based TVET, which is an area that is not well documented at present in China. A critical issue for economic development is the ability to ensure that those who are already in employment continue to have the skills and qualifications that are required for growth and change in the workplace. This requires adequate and effective continuing vocational education and training. Many enterprises in China may well provide training to employees and support their educational endeavours, but at present there is little information collected, collated or published on this type of activity, from either an employer or employee perspective. The reason is that there are no surveys of employers and employees similar to the continuing vocational training (CVT) surveys which are conducted regularly in European nations, Australia and Canada.
