The cultivation of students’ innovation skills in vocational colleges is of paramount importance in preparing them to excel in the everchanging and competitive world. However, there are several challenges that impede the development of students’ innovation skills. This paper addresses these challenges from the perspective of skills competition and proposes practical countermeasures. These suggestions include incorporating skills competition into the curriculum, provision of teacher training on innovation skills, encouraging industry partnerships, and fostering a culture of innovation within vocational colleges. Through the implementation of these measures, an environment that nurtures students’ practical abilities, creativity, and innovation skills can be created. This research contributes to the existing body of knowledge on innovation education in vocational colleges and offers practical strategies for enhancing the cultivation of students’ innovation ability.
