Yes, spend more time and money on vocational training, and less time/money on trying to learn English, which they can never master even after several decades of learning!

Trades training should also be voluntary. As it is now, if you don't pass your senior middle school entrance exams, you are shuttled off to vocational training. This whole idea that only smart kids can go on to senior high school and then on to university is totally redundant and archaic academic thinking. Everyone deserves to graduate from high school. Everyone deserves a chance at a university education, if they so wish, and everyone deserves the right to be educated in a field they feel they will excel at. That includes trades training. People advance countries ... not governments.
Stupid people are like Glowsticks. You want to snap them in half and shake the crap out of them until they see the light.
I love sarcasm. It's like punching someone in the head ... only with words

One must however be careful on the matter of emphasis. Observe how the German auto industry is now facing the challenge of trying to catch up to global trends because its meistership programs train its youths for the traditional petrol and diesel engines when the trend is towards 5G-enabled electrics.

Trends start with human imagination then technologies catch up to make it happen then markets get spellbound to create the potential demand to justify massive investments and deployment of workers. To accelerate towards this target, the workers must be made ready for the trend which is often a disruptive change in some industrial matter.

Therefore vocational training must have some module to teach and practice how to tackle disruptive changes no matter what the new technologies impending on the industry will be. In short, how to be resilient, creative and progressive in designing-using ANY technology for the particular industry.
