The distinguishing characteristics of our technical vocational education were to combine industrial and social demands, to instruct students how to work both in hands and brain, and to raise them to be future managerial talents, with healthy body and minds, well versed in business morals, professional ethics, and professionalism. The competence-based education, zealously promoted by our school through some scrutinized and scientific process of analyses yielding course standards, enabled our students to obtain their specialties. In the meanwhile, the students’ learning experiences and individual differences, acquired in such an educational process, would be optimized so that they could learn happily and obtain the licenses for the future competitions.
