In recent years, with the economic level constantly improving in China, people have their living standards greatly improved, and higher demands have been raised on education.

More and more attentions are paid to vocational skills competitions in colleges, and increasing numbers of students turn to the competitions, which whether seeing from educational philosophy or students’ overall qualities will help colleges to achieve the goals of cultivating talents. Surveys on higher vocational colleges show, most of such colleges are focused on what textbooks offer and theoretical knowledge in teaching, however, the theoretical knowledge is almost separated from practices. Most are still poor in the practice-based teaching system, and consequently most students have no practical experience and innovative abilities in practical work, and get low scores in vocational skills competitions, which is a main problem existing in the practice-based teaching system in such colleges. To create practice-based teaching systems adapted to vocational skills competitions in college teaching is to cultivate students’ abilities of practical operation so as to enable them to combine theories with practices on the basis of what they have learned and apply what they have gotten in professional work. This article first analyzes the patterns of vocational skills competitions, followed by the problems arising the practice-based teaching in colleges; finally, it shows how to create practice-based teaching systems in colleges adapted to vocational skills competitions.
