Lasting from 2011 to 2015, the support program works to enhance the quality of education in Yunhe County by providing education funds, teaching staff and school facilities in a bid to improve school conditions and educational level in the region.

According to the plan, Beilun District will spend 2.5 million yuan (500,000 annually) on standardized school construction, school buildings renovation, building of job training bases of vocational schools, and renovation of rural kindergartens. Each year 20 competent teachers will be appointed as trainers for 40 teachers in Yunhe County, and offer their experience in teaching method, course design and planning, and educational research. In addition, Beilun will offer free training for 50 teachers from Yunhe each year and send one or two outstanding teachers to serve as volunteers in Yunhe County.

The supporting program also helps to improve the level of school management in Yunhe County. The teacher-training program will focus on the vocational and technical education and professional development, aiming to promote the level of specialization of workforce training base in Yunhe County
