Whether an industry can develop healthy and sustainable, professional talent training and talent echelon construction are crucial, and all this only rely on the re -education or vocational training of employees is obviously obviously obviously is obviously that is obviously the re -education or vocational training of employees is obviously obviously. Not enough, the deeper needs are the professionalism of personnel.
    1. The general overview of jewelry majors in colleges and universities
    Jewelry education. With the hotness of the jewelry market and the requirements for the comprehensive quality and professional skills of employees, the multi -level jewelry teaching system across the country is currently currently. Gradually formed, and showing strong pertinence.
    1.1 The various types of schools are diverse
    The school running schools reflect the diversification of progress with the times. There are also many ways such as adult education and online education; both undergraduate and above knowledge -oriented higher education, as well as high -vocational and college technical secondary education; almost comprehensively cover all stages of secondary and senior education education.
    The universities in the country currently have more than 50 universities or vocational colleges, and jewelry identification and jewelry design are offered. Among them, the most famous of which are China University of Geosciences (Beijing) and China University of Geosciences (Wuhan). The Jewelry Academy, with a complete teaching and training plan, curriculum system, and the syllabus of various curriculums, have accumulated rich teaching experience in many years of teaching. The Great Wall College and Jiangcheng College of the two universities based on the two universities have also opened jewelry appraisal and other majors.
    Jewelry teaching units are all over the country. The cities located are characterized by developed economy, developed jewelry industry, and developed higher education. More than a dozen units including Beijing Academy of Fashion, Beijing Urban College, Beijing Commercial School, such as Guangzhou University, Guangzhou Panyu Vocational and Technical College Jewelry College, Shenzhen Vocational and Technical College Arts Design College, Shenzhen Senior Technical School and other units Essence
    1.2 Student situation
    The students of jewelry majors are still undergraduate (one, two, three books) and colleges, including some master's degree and a few doctoral graduate students. At the same time Students from higher vocational, high school, technical secondary school. According to incomplete statistics, the annual enrollment scale is close to 10,000 people.
    The employment of graduates is better as a whole, and there are more directions. The employment of technical secondary school, higher vocational, and college is mainly based on the front line of sales. Major companies, stores, etc. have a large gap every year; in addition to a few of them go abroad, a considerable part of the postgraduate army, such as China's geological geology, such as Chinese geology Nearly 50%of the undergraduates of gems and materials of college (Beijing) (Beijing) and materials and craftsmanship directly admitted to graduate students directly. In many directions, and a small number of students directly start their own business, they have also achieved gratifying results, bringing a lot of vitality to the jewelry industry; the employment of graduate students is mostly as teachers, entering industry associations, etc. There are many aspects such as management, and there are also a few independent entrepreneurship or changing their careers to other industries.
    . As of now, many jewelery students who have graduated from the science class have become a vital army in the industry.
    1.3 The joining of "Treasure Second Generation"
    With the gradual maturity and development of the jewelry industry, the second generation of employees has also reached the age of entering the higher education institutions. These "two -generation treasures" have heard the five colors of Bao Jade from a young age. For them, this is rare and different, but because of their personal preferences or successive family companies, many of them also joined. He came to the army of jewelry majors. Compared with other students who have no jewelry background, they have the advantages of being familiar with the gem and even the jewelry industry, and the choice of graduation direction is much more free, such as continuing to go abroad, such as luxury management and art, etc. The addition of the "Bao Second Generation" will undoubtedly become one of the important driving drivers of the Chinese jewelry industry.
    1.4 The current status of Chinese jewelry professional education from 2011 ~ 2012
    This years are two years of difficult and challenging for the Chinese jewelry industry. In the face of various unfavorable factors at home and abroad, survival, development, transformation, transformation And upgrade has become an urgent problem in front of jewelry companies. However, domestic jewelry education has not stagnated because of this, and the training of talents is still a long and arduous task.
    While consolidating the professional education foundation and quality education, jewelry majors have more sights on the platforms needed by domestic talents, and start to create innovative talents with strong hands -on ability.
    The China University of Geosciences (Beijing) has held many "appraisers" contests in the school since 2008. According to different semester, it is divided into different themes of "gem identification" and "diamond classification". The semester was held, and many students who were solid and diligent in their professional skills stood out, and they achieved good results in the training of international certificates such as FGAs that subsequently participated in the FGA.
    The training of hands -on talents is mainly based on the construction of in -school laboratories and the construction of off -campus internships and trainee bases in higher education. After years of hard work, many colleges and universities currently have several internship bases that can receive student internships. From various perspectives such as testing institutions, scientific research units, enterprises, industry media, etc., they aim to create a platform for students to contact the industry and make them adapt to advance adaptation in advance. After entering society, fast -paced and strong competition. At the same time, in 2009, the League Central Committee followed the work policy of the Party Central Committee to solve employment difficulties and began to start the construction of college trainee bases. According to the synthesis of many factors such as the location of the university, the scale of running the school, and the professional settings, the first batch of college student trainee bases was launched at the end of 2009. Essence Simultaneously requires that the trainee unit should be appropriately subsidized in the process of receiving students (undergraduate students) trainees, so as to obtain practical experience, they can also have a slight income to maintain the cost of off -campus trainees.
    The inscriptions of the internship base and the trainer base have brought closer the distance from the industry to the jewelery college students to help them locate university learning for 4 years.
    2. The jewelry professional characteristics and talent training direction of colleges and universities
    The colleges and universities are mainly academic education.
    2.1 Professional characteristics
    In according to the rapid development of the jewelry industry and the needs of new talents in all aspects, all the school units continue to adjust their school positioning and direction.

    Generally speaking, the training goals of graduate students are mainly scientific research. The undergraduate is mainly to emphasize the comprehensive quality of high professional skills. Technical school students, such as technical schools, require students to master the practical ability of identification and marketing. The training plan at different levels fully considers the characteristics of school running, students' acceptance ability, and multi -faceted problems such as job selection and employment in the future. The overall formation has formed a relatively independent and mutually integrated jewelry education system.
