Ningbo to build new model for modern vocational education

It is learned from Ningbo Education Bureau that as a "window" of he vocational education in the city, Ningbo Foreign Affairs School has been invited to open a branch in Deva of Romania, marking the settlment of Ningbo’s vocational education model in a foreign country. 
To better serve the regional economic transformation and upgrading, Ningbo has accelerated the construction of the new model of modern vocational education in recent years. 
It has become a consensus for the vocational schools to produce the talents demanded by the market. With this guideline, all the schools have conducted their disciplinary adjustments to actively adapt to and serve the local industrial development by meeting the demands of the model transformation of the regional economic development and the industrial structural adjustment. For example, Zhejiang Business Technology Institute invested 150 million yuan to build an industrial research base in Ninghai County, and Ningbo Polytechnic co-built the Digital Technology Park in cooperation with Beilun Economic and Technology Development Zone and Ningbo Information Industry Bureau. 
As a major municipal project for the "upgrading strategy", the rail transit construction needs a lot of technicians. To meet the demand, after rounds of negotiations, Ningbo Education Bureau and the Rail Transit Commanding Office started to open the "rail transit classes" in Ningbo Vocational Education Center and Yinzhou Vocational Education Center in 2010.
Some enterprises even moved their laboratories and production lines into schools. At the end of 2005, Haitian Group invested three million yuan to set up a CNC machine tool center in Ningbo Polytechnic and officially launched the "mold CAD/CAM teaching" program, and in 2006 the group invested ten million yuan to build the Haitian Department Building. The cooperation between school and enterprise and the integration of classroom and workshop have greatly strengthened the students’ practical ability and improved their competitiveness in the job market.

Besides such prominent local enterprises as Yinyi Property, Deli, Aux and Peacebird, some internet enterprises set up their stands at the fair, including the JD.com, Ganji.com and Nuomi.com. "The cross-border E-commerce internet enterprises have a great demand for the graduates majoring in foreign languages and foreign trade.

According to a Ms. Zhang from the human resources department of a foreign trade company, they had a large need for talents with the development to the cross-border E-commerce business in recent years. "We need talents of such majors as English, E-business and international trade, who have great abilities in written and spoken English. Besides the interviews, they have to pass out English tests."
Besides the special professional abilities, diligence has become an important factor for the recruitment. A recruitment poster of an import & export company wrote, "female, good at housework". How come the housework skill becomes so important? Ms. Luo from the company said, "As we know, many college students depend heavily on their parents in doing their own household chores. We have such a requirement because we think it is important for the graduates to have the ability to live independently and work independently."
