Recently, the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security and the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology jointly promulgated seven national vocational and technical skills standards for integrated circuits, artificial intelligence, Internet of Things, cloud computing, industrial Internet, virtual reality engineering and technical personnel and digital managers. Previously, the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security and the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology have issued three national vocational and technical skills standards for intelligent manufacturing, big data, and blockchain engineering and technical personnel. These 10 occupations are new occupations successively released by the General Office of the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security, the General Office of the State Administration of Market Regulation, and the Office of the Statistics Bureau since April 2019, and they belong to the second largest occupational classification ceremony of the People’s Republic of China (2015 Edition). Occupations in the category “Professional technicians”.
It is reported that the seven national vocational and technical skills standards promulgated this time are all formulated for the first time. Occupational standards are guided by occupational activities, with professional ability as the core, respect the law of technological development and talent growth, highlight the core theoretical knowledge, mainstream technology and future development requirements of relevant occupational fields, and adhere to the integrity, hierarchy, standardization and practicality. , The principle of operability, and the professional activities such as the work field, work content, knowledge level, and professional requirements of employees at all levels are described in a standard and detailed manner. The professional and technical levels of each occupation are divided into three levels from low to high: primary, intermediate and advanced, and some occupations are also divided into several occupational directions.
In recent years, the rapid development of my country’s digital economy has spawned a number of new industries and new formats such as artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, cloud computing, and integrated circuits, and new occupations in the field of digital technology have continued to emerge. At present, the market has a large demand for practitioners in the field of digital technology, and the supply of high-quality human resources is seriously insufficient. The promulgation of the national occupational standards in the field of digital technology provides a basic basis for conducting training evaluations for practitioners in new occupations.
In the next step, the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security will rely on the knowledge update project for professional and technical talents, organize the compilation of new vocational training courses in accordance with national occupational standards, formulate and issue supporting policies and measures, standardize the training and evaluation of digital technical talents, speed up the independent training of talents, and expand digital technology. The team of technical engineers provides talent support for leading the innovation and upgrading of emerging industries, promoting the deep integration of the digital economy and the real economy, and promoting high-quality economic and social development.
