This paper analyzes the professional bottlenecks limiting the career development of young teachers in vocational colleges, including insufficient teaching skills, limited research capacity, and restricted professional development and career progression. Targeted recommendations involve fostering young teachers’ teaching skills and research capabilities through mentorship, training, research participation and skills competition guidance. Addressing these bottlenecks effectively develops young teachers’ competencies, contributing innovative ideas and practices to improve vocational education quality, cementing their role as the next generation of vocational educators.
