Thousands of youngsters from Xinjiang’s ethnic minority groups receive training in a range of vocational courses at the Kashgar Technical College.

Established in 1978, the college caters to over 10,000 students from the 12 counties of Kashgar Prefecture, offering a range of academic courses. After two to three years of academics and internships, the college also assists in getting suitable placements for its young graduates.

Contrary to the Western narrative that paints all the vocational and technical training centers in Xinjiang as “internment camps” to suit a geopolitical agenda, these institutions are in fact playing a vital role in integrating the youths from the minority ethnic communities into China’s mainstream, providing them adequate skills and the confidence to meet the challenges of a constantly changing modern world.
