教育部國教署近年大力推動「新住民子女職業技能精進計畫」,鼓勵學校結合區域就業市場需求,辦理特定技能訓練課程,強化專業職能、軟性技能及創新能力,提升就業力。

In recent years, the K-12 Education Administration, Ministry of Education (教育部國民及學前教育署) has been vigorously promoting vocational skills improvement program for new immigrant students, encouraging schools to organize specific skill-training courses that meet the needs of the regional job market.

The plan aims to strengthen professional skills and innovative thinking, as well as enhancing employability.

例如,彰化縣達德商工結合在地知名的織襪產業豐富資源,鼓勵新住民學生學習織襪機操作技術、維修等技能,甚至結合程式設計,讓學生設計各種創新的織襪圖案。

For example, The Da Der Commercial and Technical Vocational School (達德商工) integrated rich resources of the well-known sock knitting industry in Changhua, encouraging new immigrant students to learn the skills of operating and maintaining sock knitting machines, as well as designing their own sock patterns using computer programming.

國立苗栗農工則是規劃西點蛋糕與中式麵食等技術課程,開發具有地方特色的桐花酥,並融入新住民飲食文化特色,讓學生培養專業技能之餘,也對新住民飲食文化有更深的認識。

On the other hand, National Miao-Li Agricultural & Industrial Vocational High School (國立苗栗農工) launched technical courses on eastern pastry and Chinese cuisines, developing Tung flower puff cakes rich in local characteristics, and incorporating features of the new immigrants’ food culture.

The school aims to cultivate students in terms of professional skills while introducing their food culture to them at the same time.

「新住民子女職業技能精進計畫」對象以在學新住民學生為優先,若有剩餘名額,再依序提供弱勢學生、一般學生參與。

The program gives priority to new immigrant students if there are spare places, disadvantaged students and ordinary students can join in order.

國教署表示,透過本計畫的協助,可提升新住民子女的實作力、創新力及就業力。

The administration stated that through the assistance of this program, the practicality, creativity, and employability of new immigrant students will be enhanced.
