Key City Development Issues
In 2007, the Guiyang Municipal Government established the Guiyang Vocational and Technical College (GVTC). However, Guiyang is still facing challenges in the delivery of quality vocational education services. These challenges include: (i) inadequate investment in vocational education resulting in low quality of vocational graduates; (ii) education facilities and conditions are poor characterized by inadequate training facilities and equipment or even lack of on-site training venues; (iii) vocational education and training cannot keep up with the quality needed by industries; and (iv) insufficiency of qualified teaching staff.
Details of Cooperation
CDIA-supported activities included: (i) provision of technical and financial feasible solution to develop the GVTC main campus in association private sector sponsor(s), which can design, build, operate, manage and maintain training and teaching facilities in the GVTC; (ii) identification of suitable mechanisms of cooperation with private sectors to enhance the source of revenue and improve the training quality of GVTC; (iii) set the fundamentals of the education programs and long term sustainable educational facility aligned with the partnership with the private sector; and (iv) building on the preliminary business plan for the proposed PPP procurement modality, followed by transaction advisory service subjected to project feasibility.
Expected Development Outcomes
Expected benefits from the project include: (i) enlargement of education opportunities for vulnerable groups to enhance social equality and narrow the income gaps; (ii) improvement of employment rate due to higher vocational education and increase in personal/family income from engaging in technical/professional level jobs; (iii) enhancement of the competitiveness of enterprises with better skilled employees; and (iv) concentration of educational activities in a single location thereby improving synergies between education providers and business/industry sector.
