In order to implement earnestly the national arrangements of the 14th Five-Year Plan on advancing high-quality development of the Senior Service industry and accelerating related human resources development, Group Standard Technology Committee of the China Association of Social Welfare and Senior Service (hereinafter referred to as GSTC), together with the experts of the industry and related scientific research institutes, has researched and developed three group standards, the Criterion on Vocational Skill of Senior Rehabilitation Service, Part 1: Skill Requirements, the Criterion on Vocational Skill of Senior Health Management Service, Part 1: Skill Requirements, the Criterion on Vocational Skill of Traditional Chinese Medicine Senior Health Care Service, Part 1: Skill Requirements, based on the industrial needs and the vision of innovative development during the 14th Five-Year Plan period set by the China Association of Social Welfare and Senior Service. These standards have been released and implemented earnestly on January 18th after the review of the Secretariat of GSTC. 

Since March 2021 when the project of the Three Group Standards was approved and under the leadership of President Feng Xiaoli, GSTC has overcome the difficulties due to the pandemic and innovated the working way of Group Standardization. The association has organized the draft team consisting of experts from more than 20 related scientific research institutes, vocational colleges and senior service institutes, including the China Rehabilitation and Research Centre, Guangdong Zhuoyue Social Service Evaluation Center, Chengdu Railway Health School, Changsha Social Work College, Hangzhou Normal University and Hunan Traditional Chinese Medical College. According to the set time nodes, innovative research has been conducted orderly, and various conferences including Standard Initiation Conference, Technology Review Conference, GSTC Internal Review Conference have been successfully convened. 

In March 2021, GSTC convened Project Settlement Conferences on the Three Group Standards separately. During the conferences, the expert groups highly confirmed the necessity to draw up the Three Group Standards, acknowledged the significance of the standards and appraised the solid capability of the draft team. They all approved the project of the Three Standards. President Feng Xiaoli raised the overall requirements for drafting, and clarified the three principles for standard compilation. Firstly, the standards should reflect the requirements of the related national departments on 'enhancing the standardization of vocational training', gradually set up a diversified and multi-levelled system of standards in senior service vocational training; secondly, the draft of the standards should refer to the results the China Association of Social Welfare and Senior Service has achieved through years of efforts in senior service personnel vocational training, while the contents of the standards should keep in line with the current national standard and industry standard; thirdly, the contents should be combined with the job demand and quality need of the industry, scientifically position the practical skills mastered at different occupational levels, and lay a sound foundation for the research and development of vocational training materials. The formulation of the Three Group Standards is the new exploration of the China Association of Social Welfare and Senior Service according to the need to upgrade service and management in the senior service industry, in order to innovate group standardization construction, and focus on developing new technology and modes for senior rehabilitation service, geriatric health management services and geriatric Chinese traditional medical care service. These will provide technological support for senior service vocational training.
