In 2019, the Chinese government officially proposed to start the system of "academic certificate + several vocational skill level certificates" in vocational colleges, that is, "1 + X" system. The "1 + X" education mode ensures that students obtain several vocational skill level certifications in vocational skills while obtaining academic certificates. As a professional social work that has been rooted in China for only 20 years, the "1 + X" model has brought it a great opportunity for development. Improving the professionalism of teachers, optimizing the education evaluation mechanism, and inviting professional social work organizations to participate in practical training have become important ways to promote social work vocational education.
