  If there are still some thresholds for "three-day fast", then the following approach of "paying 1,500 yuan, not taking classes, not taking exams, and getting a certificate" is not a threshold at all.

  A reporter from Sino-Singapore Jingwei contacted Mr. Zhang from a certificate agency as a student.

"The certificate is issued by the Talent Skills Certification Management Center, which can be checked on the official website and is available nationwide." Get a certificate in about a month.

"College Entrance Examination Volunteer Planner" is not included in the certification

  A reporter from China-Singapore Jingwei noticed that there are currently many kinds of "Voluntary Planner Certificates for Senior College Entrance Examination", and the issuing units are different.

At present, there are more mentions, in addition to the above two, there is also a "special skill certificate" issued by the China Chamber of Commerce and the China Chamber of Commerce Business Occupational Skills Appraisal and Guidance Center. )”.

  However, a reporter from Sino-Singapore Jingwei inquired about the "National Vocational Qualification Catalog" (2021 Edition) and found that career planners, volunteer planners for the college entrance examination, etc. were not included in the catalog, and related career instructors were also cancelled in 2017. Professional Qualification.

  According to relevant regulations, no professional qualifications are permitted or recognized outside the catalogue.

  This means that the above-mentioned "Voluntary Planner Certificate for Senior College Entrance Examination" is not valid, but to a large extent, it is a pretext for some individuals and institutions to make money.

  A high school teacher from an experimental middle school in a certain province confirmed this to a reporter from Sino-Singapore Jingwei. She said that the only vocational qualifications related to volunteering for the college entrance examination were originally only vocational instructors, but the number of certificate holders in the country is very small. The Ministry of Social Affairs has cancelled this certification.

At present, the state does not have professional qualification certification for the so-called "volunteer planners in the college entrance examination".

  According to a staff member of an education and training institution in Beijing, his institution not only provides voluntary reporting services for college students, but also trains voluntary planners for college entrance examinations, but "never issues national vocational certifications or the like."

  According to the staff member, the "College Entrance Examination Volunteer Planner Practical Class" launched by the agency is an online live broadcast course, with a total of 16 class hours and a fee of 5,380 yuan.

After completing the study and passing the exam, the institution will issue a "Certificate of Volunteer Planner for the College Entrance Examination", but the issuer is the institution.

  "This certificate only means that the trainee has accepted the training of our institution and passed the exam, and it has no special effect. Our training focuses on the process. In fact, most of the formal college entrance examination volunteer filling service agencies also recruit planners. It doesn't matter if you have a national certificate, everyone in the industry knows that it's useless." said the above-mentioned staff member.

  As an applicant, a reporter from Sino-Singapore Jingwei contacted several volunteer service agencies for the college entrance examination. All of them said that "there is no need to provide the relevant certificate of the college entrance examination volunteer planner". Generally, applicants are required to have teaching experience, obtain a teacher's qualification certificate, and a teacher's training certificate. School graduation is preferred.

  However, in practice, this does not mean that the so-called "voluntary planner certificate for the college entrance examination" is useless.

  The staff of the above-mentioned education and training institutions said, "In general, institutions in first- and second-tier cities do not recognize these certificates, but in third- and fourth-tier cities, and even county towns, these certificates with various names are still very popular. After people spend money to get the certificate, they will open a personal studio or only provide services through the Internet. These certificates are very confusing, and most parents of students will not distinguish."

  Qiqi (pseudonym) from a county in Shandong Province will take the college entrance examination in 2021 and was admitted to a normal college in Nanjing.

She introduced to the Sino-Singapore Jingwei reporter that after the college entrance examination scores came out, her family took her to consult "a well-known local volunteer planner for the college entrance examination".

"This teacher works from home. During the consultation process, he showed various national certificates, but we didn't take a closer look. According to the family, this teacher's business is very good, and he needs to make an appointment long in advance, and he can earn more than ten in one college entrance examination season. Ten thousand yuan." Kiki said.

  The above-mentioned high school teachers said that the current voluntary reporting service market lacks norms, and the entry threshold is extremely low.

She admitted that candidates need some guidance to fill in the application, but there is no need to be overly anxious and believe in "high-priced" guidance, let alone rely on so-called AI and big data.

"We have always emphasized that candidates are the first responsible person for voluntary reporting. Candidates should clarify their hobbies, employment direction, quality and ability, etc., and cannot blindly hand over their voluntary decision-making power to others."

  A reporter from China-Singapore Jingwei noticed that on the 23rd, the Ministry of Education's website issued an early warning mentioning that it is necessary to beware of the trap of "high-priced volunteer guidance".

  The Ministry of Education solemnly reminds the majority of candidates and parents that there are problems such as inaccurate policy interpretation, inaccurate information provision, irregular fee collection and even fraud in the "high-priced" voluntary reporting consultation activities carried out by institutions or individuals in the society to candidates and parents.

Candidates are requested to comprehensively refer to the consulting service information provided by the local admissions examination institution, the middle school where they are located, and relevant colleges and universities, and fill in the report independently and reasonably according to their actual situation.

  The Ministry of Education also mentioned in the early warning that relevant departments have never issued vocational qualification certificates such as "Voluntary Planners for the College Entrance Examination".

Some so-called "volunteer planners" in individual institutions are temporarily recruited social personnel, who guide candidates and parents according to the "lines" provided by the headquarters.

Parents not only overpay for the services of these agencies, they may also report wrongly.
