T-levels: a new vocational qualification for English teenagers 英教育部为青少年增设职业资质课程

文字稿

The world is changing; education must too, according to the government. T-levels will be offered to 16-year-old students who'd normally be going on to study academic A-levels. They're vocational, covering subjects like finance and accounting, engineering and manufacturing and construction.

英国政府称,世界在变化,所以教育也应顺应当下。T-levels 将面向那些通常会学习高中学术课程 A-levels (相当于英国学生大学入学考试)的 16岁学生。这类职业培训型课程涵盖金融、会计、制造和工程等科目。

The plan is for employers to help create the courses and offer compulsory work placements. The first courses start in just over two years but there are concerns that could be too soon for such a dramatically new programme.

此计划的目的是为了让雇主帮助创建课程并按规定必须提供相应的实习机会。首批课程将在短短两年后展开,但人们担心,对于这样一个全新的课程来说,可能还为时过早。

Critics warn that rushing it through risks young people's futures. The government says, in a fast-moving economy, T-levels are needed to prepare young people for the jobs of tomorrow.

评论人士提醒说,匆忙实施改革危及年轻人的未来。英国政府称,在快速发展的经济状况下,需要通过 T-levels 课程来帮助年轻人做好适应未来工作的准备。
