Abstract

Vocational education or adult education is a significant part in lifelong learning system. Higher vocational colleges, as the senior form of vocational education, undertake their responsibilities of conducting pre-vocational education for cultivating technical, skillful and high-quality laborers in production, administration, construction and service, etc. and keep close connection with enterprises and other employers, especially with real economy departments so as to eventually establish a big system of vocational education and lifelong education. Currently, the common problems faced by each higher vocational academy during developing adult education include: there are less and less demands for academic education and increasing demands for non-academic education; besides, being marginalized by regular institutions for higher learning particularly by the adult education of brand-name colleges, the competition in education market becomes more intense day by day, following the prominent problem that higher vocational colleges neglect to increase inputs in adult education despite of its constantly reinforced strength of running school. Even if great progress has been achieved during developing higher vocational education by now, adult education in higher vocational colleges seemingly does not step into a steady road of development. The thesis is expected to find a sally port to provide supports for the sustainable development of adult education in higher vocational colleges by proceeding on deep researches on those realistic problems.
