1. The shining entrepreneurial footprint and the fruitful training achievement

Each step of the development for Lanxiang, is not only the improvement of school scale and level, but also the symbol of entering a new transition stage. In October 1984, the prototype of Shandong Lanxiang senior vocational school (is short for “Lanxiang”)—the school-run technical school of Jina 57 middle school, is founded at a humble courtyard in Baohua street, Tianqiao district, Jinan city. In 1988, Lanxiang cooperated with the military to establish a vocational training school. In 1997, due to the separation between production and operation in military, Lanxiang built a new campus in Tianqiao district with the covering area of 3.3 hectares, over 90 thousand square meters of school building area. In September 2005, Lanxiang opened enrollment with the covering area of 10 hectares, over 100 thousand square meters of school building area .

2. The idea that employment guides teaching, moves the “factory” into school

The root of Lanxiang’s success owes to the teaching idea that “The education should focus on the job market, the teaching quality should be on the basis of employment”, and “the only standard for testing teaching quality is the quality of employment”. This is Lanxiang’s teaching direction of vocational education, is the important basis of long-term healthy development.

Moving the “factory” into the school is a successful practice of Lanxiang’s innovative talent cultivation model. This model has changed the situation that there is no direct connection between the theory and practice, only send students into factories in the internship so that the practice quality cannot be guaranteed and students need to study further when they graduate. The school build an environment combining the enterprise and school, so that the theory and practice can be combined closely, the students can experience the “real” factory as “workers”. Thus the students can not only get the production skills, but also develop the ability of management, cost counting and marketing etc., and make the distance between graduation and employment become zero.

The facilities in the “factory” are well equipped. The auto major has two training workshops of 36,000 square meters each. More are 100 sets of all kinds of automobiles of domestic and foreign brands can be used in the workshop, which can accommodate 6,000 students to practice at the same time. Cuisine and nutrition major has a training workshop of 20,000 square meters, which can accommodate more than 1,000 students to practice with a single stove for each. The NC Machine Tool Processing major has five large-scale training workshops equipped nearly 100 sets of precision CNC machine tools, processing centers and nearly 100 ordinary lathes, and NC training factory, which serve for the China National Heavy Duty Truck, JIER and many other enterprises.

3. Innovative teaching materials and teaching methods, strict teaching management

Since its establishment, Lanxiang has insisted on the innovation of teaching materials. In order to make the teaching content meet the needs of the development level of social productivity, the school established Textbook Compilation Committee, invests more than 5 million every year, and employs experts and professors from society, to revise the teaching materials constantly, and compile a series of professional courses of “zero-distance employment integration“.

The school takes the integration of theory and practice as the structure, integrates theory knowledge into the case to explain, and keeps pace with the times, deletes the content which is behind the development of the times, compiles the new technology, new technology, new equipment and other content into teaching materials, so as to ensure the teaching materials to be advanced and practical. In order to standardize the theory and practice teaching, the school has formulated and implemented the Establishment Standard for the Permanent Majors of Shandong Lanxiang Senior Technical School. The school set the standard for the two-year senior technical schooling, with 1000 students as a unit, high school graduates as the starting point. It set detailed matching criteria on which professional theory and professional skills to study, what kind of degree to achieve, how many lessons of theory and practice, how many equipment and materials are needed, the proportion of the theory and practice teachers, how to carry out the target assessment when students graduate, and finally to ensure the employment.

The school has established a management system to ensure the quality of the internship. The vehicle repairing workshop established equipment management system. When teachers and students get equipment, they should check the operation condition of equipment first; and when they return the equipment after the dismounting internship, they should check the operation condition of equipment again, which plays a promoting role in testing the practice level and protecting the practical equipment. The practice product in the NC workshop adopts real name system. Each workpiece processed by the students are marked with the ID number of the teachers and students. So we can see the product is processed by which student, under whose guidance, so as to test the teaching quality of teachers and practice level of students, as well as strengthen the management work.

The schools strengthened the assessment on the teaching quality and the employment ability of students. It combined he teacher’s teaching quality assessment with the employment rate of students, and formulated incentive and restraint assessment system. At the same time, in line with the spirit of being highly responsible to students, parents and society, the school paid great attention to the examination and test for certification. After graduation, the school issues diplomas; the Occupational Skill Identification Center will conduct on-site examination and issue the certificate of vocational qualification after passing the examination. Shandong Lanxiang employment center will implement the employment unit according to the information of recruitment Information and student employment intention, so as to complete all the teaching.
