Plan issued to improve education workforce
China's Ministry of Education, in collaboration with seven other authorities, has issued a plan to build a stronger workforce for the country's basic education system.
The plan aims to expand the number and improve the quality of teachers, and meet demands for China's basic education development by 2035.
China will further improve teachers' professional ethics and competence by introducing talent nurturing programs and reforming targeted training.
Teacher resources will be more balanced, as special teacher cultivation plans for undeveloped areas in China's central and western regions will be put into practice.
National-level pedagogical bases and coordinated innovation platforms will also be built to strengthen the education system for teachers.
