Following with these conclusions, three recommendations are offered: 1) it would be proper to strengthen student’s professional intellect for future development; 2) it would be proper to strengthen student’s vocational capability in practice, including individual personality; 3) and, it would be proper to offer related testing or scaling tools to help student get awareness and thus upgrade their attitude during workplace-learning.
