  • Message from the Chief Editor: JTET December 2017

    • Authors: Chief Editor
      Abstract: Welcome to the 2017 December issue of the Journal of Technical Education and Training. In this issue we present eight papers from Indonesia, Malaysia, Nigeria, and Thailand with diverse perspectives on TVET practices and concerns. The papers highlight four broad themes namely, employability skills, vocational pedagogy, education for sustainability and entrepreneurship. The first two papers are concerned with identifying skills set to meet industry needs. The first paper from Thailand by Siddoo, Sawattawee, Janchai and Yodmongkol highlights the current concern on competency gaps that are observed among IT graduates as seen from the perspective of Thailand’s industries. To wrap up on the employability skills theme, the second paper by Mahfud, Jati, and Mulyani demonstrated the viability of using competency mapping as a tool for identifying industry soft skills needs giving an example from its application in the Indonesian hospitality sector. Acquisition of the desired competencies and skills however, are only possible through appropriate use of pedagogy or vocational pedagogy as it is preferably known in the TVET sector. Thus, the concept of vocational pedagogy is gaining greater prominence with increased needs to provide effective and efficient TVET provisions. In the third paper by Md Yunos et al., they discuss the efforts made to identify prevalant pedagogical practices among vocational teachers in Malaysia and Indonesia, while in the fourth paper, Nurlaela, Romadhoni, Widodo and Ana discuss how problem solving skills - an important skill of the 21st century – can be developed through appropriate use of pedagogical tools with successful examples from the home economics studies. Besides the home economics, sustainable education is another area where good practices are emerging as discussed in the fifth paper by Oviawe, Uwameiye, and Uddin, who share examples of practices from Nigeria. In Malaysia, efforts towards sustainability are enhanced with the transformation of technical schools into vocational colleges as discussed in the sixth paper by Manap, Hassan and Syahrom who share their findings on the issues and challenges facing those involved in the transformation journey. Recent development in recognizing entrepreneurial skills as generic skill has led to greater efforts to understand it. In the seventh paper, Inuwa and Ibrahim Mohammed investigate the role of psychological factors in shaping individuals’ entrepreneurial intention in Nigeria. Another similar focus of study was also conducted by Entika, Mohammad, Jabor and Osman in Malaysia who identified the necesary skills set for entrepreneurship in the engineering practice while calling for greater efforts to undertsand the contribution of contextual factors in defining the characterstics of entrepreneural skills set. We sincerely hope that the information shared are of benefit to our readers. Last but not least, we would like to thank all contributors and reviewers who make the timely publication of the current issue possible. We look forward to receiving more contributions from researchers and practitioners for our future issues. Happy Holidays and Happy New Year for the upcoming seasons.

  • EXPLORING THE COMPETENCY GAP OF IT STUDENTS IN THAILAND: THE EMPLOYERS’
           VIEW OF AN EFFECTIVE WORKFORCE

    • Authors: Veeraporn Siddoo, Jinda Sawattawee, Worawit Janchai, & Pitipong Yodmongkol
      Abstract: Adapting to the digital economy is part of the national agenda in many countries. Developing IT workforces to support business growth and innovation in Thailand is now a matter of urgency. Universities which are directly responsible for producing graduates for the employment market lack direction in designing curricula because they lack understanding of industry requirements. The absence of industrial demand research leads to a loss of opportunity to develop skills within the country’s working population and to maximize productive employment. The study described in this paper focused on IT internship students' competencies and aimed to analyze the gap in information technology competencies between employers’ expectations and their assessment of the current competencies of intern students they employ, and to analyze the important areas which make up an effective IT student from the employers’ perspective. The digital competence framework and the information technology competency model were modified to generate a structured questionnaire comprising closed-ended items, which was sent to organizations that are collaborating on work-integrated learning programs with universities in Thailand. Descriptive statistics, correlation and regression analysis were used as the analysis tools. The results found that employers’ highest expectations were in respect of the self-effectiveness competency and that students do not meet their expectations in that area. However, the interns exceed the employers’ expectations in respect of workplace ability and industry-wide core IT foundation skills. The regression models constructed suggested that the performance of IT students in the academic literacy and workplace ability competencies were most predictive of the average level of employers’ expectations. The findings from this empirical study can be used by universities to support curriculum reform in order to meet industry requirements and by students who need to be aware of employers’ needs in order to prepare themselves for employment in the IT industry.

  • VALIDITY OF VOCATIONAL PEDAGOGY CONSTRUCTS USING THE RASCH MEASUREMENT
           MODEL

    • Authors: Jailani Md Yunus, Maizam Alias, Marina Ibrahim Mukhtar, Lee Ming Foong, Tee Tze Kiong, Siti Nur Kamariah Rubani, Faizal Amin Nur Yunus, Hashima Hamid, Junita Sulaiman, & Sri Sumarwati
      Abstract: This study was conducted to generate empirical evidence on the validity and reliability of the items of a new vocational pedagogy instrument. Two stage processes were used to identify and validate constructs. The first stage involves the identification of constructs using exploratory factor analysis method and the second stage was construct validation stage using the Rasch measurement model. Construct validity was examined by analyzing the point-measure correlation index (PTMEA), infit and outfit MNSQ values; while the reliability was examined by analyzing item reliability index. The instrument was distributed to 183 teachers from Malaysian and Indonesian vocational institutions. EFA indicate the presence of construct from 2 sections (Learning Content and Pedagogical Decision). Further analysis using the Rasch measurement model indicates that the reliabilities were between 0.77 to 0.91 and 0.97 to 10.13 for the Learning Content and Pedagogy Decision constructs respectively. PTMEA values are positive for Learning Content constructs indicating that all items are able to distinguish between abilities of respondents but 3 items from Pedagogical Constructs shows there were not moving in line with other items to measure the constructs. However that item was retained with refinement. In conclusion, this study has established valid constructs for development of instrument for assessing vocational pedagogy.

  • BEST PRACTICES IN TECHNICAL EDUCATION PROGRAMME FOR STUDENTS’ CAPACITY
           BUILDING AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT IN THE 21ST CENTURY

    • Authors: Jane Itohan Oviawe, Raymond Uwameiye, & Patrick S.O. Uddin
      Abstract: The purpose of this study is to determine the best practices in technical education programme for students’ capacity building and sustainable development in the 21st century using survey research design. The entire population of 50 technical teacher educators in the Departments of Vocational and Technical Education in the three public universities in Edo and Delta States of Nigeria was used for this study. The instrument used for data collection is a 57-item questionnaire, with a five point Likert scale. The data collected were analysed using mean statistics. The findings revealed that there were almost no joint programme in technical education between school and industries except for the Students’ Industrial Work Experience Scheme (SIWES). There is also no involvement of industries in the running of technical education programme in Nigeria. Some challenges to effective school-industry collaboration and some ways that schools and industries could jointly engage to enhance students’ capacity building in technical education were identified. It was recommended among others that educational institutions offering technical education programmes should tap the dynamisms and synergies of the 21st century workplace to the full to produce technical education graduates who can fit in and succeed in the 21st century world of work.

  • PREPARATION OF VOCATIONAL COLLEGE GRADUATES AS SKILLED WORKFORCE IN THE
           LOCAL CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY

    • Authors: Norpadzlihatun Manap, Noor Sakinah Hassan, & Noor Shahifah Syahrom
      Abstract: Construction industry is growing rapidly along with the development of a country. This situation caused a high demand of workforce in this industry until the hiring of foreign workers becomes a necessity, as seen in Malaysia’s scenario. To overcome this issue, the government of Malaysia established many Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) institutes that have potential to produce local workforce as highly skilled workers in construction industry. However, the preparation of these institutes for their students have never been analyzed, as the involvement of students from TVET institutes in local construction industry as skilled workers is still low, making their preparation method as an issue. Therefore, this research will identify the types of preparation method by TVET institutes for students pursuing programmes related to construction industry, and to assess teaching strategies for programmes related to construction industry to improve student preparation to become skilled workforce. To achieve the main objectives of this research, data collection is performed by interviewing teachers from three Vocational Colleges (VC) namely VC Kluang, VC Klang and VC Taiping, which are teaching Construction Technology programmes. It can be concluded that VCs have adequate preparation to produce graduates that can become skilled workforce in the construction industry. The results conclude that there are two types of preparation method made by the VCs; preparation method in the classroom and preparation method outside the classroom. The classroom preparation method includes laboratory training and teaching using modules designed to fit industrial needs. The results from outside classroom preparation include extra-curricular activities and construction site visits. As for results of the second objective, the teaching strategies to improve student preparation for skilled workforce is through the emphasis of safety during construction to students and the raising of student interest in Construction Technology programmes through industry participation. However, actions need to be taken in order to solve the issues that include a lack of equipment and no large area for computers. This study can help VCs to enhance the student preparedness to work in the construction industry.

  • PRELIMINARY STUDY ON THE PROMINENT ENTREPRENEURIAL SKILLS SET IN THE
           CONTEXT OF CIVIL ENGINEERING PRACTICE

    • Authors: Christie Lanjing Entika, Shahrin Mohammad, Mohd Khata Jabor, & Sharifah Osman
      Abstract: Despite the fact that the importance of acquiring entrepreneurial skills for future engineers has been widely discussed, yet the specific prominent entrepreneurial skills set with respect to a specific context of interest were often left unexplained. A similar phenomenon has occurred in the context of engineering practice and possibly implying that the prominent entrepreneurial skills set in the context of civil engineering practice still remain ill-defined. As the need for engineers to acquire entrepreneurial skills to meet the economic and workforce requirements has been widely recognised, thus identifying the prominent entrepreneurial skills set in the context of civil engineering practice is very important. The purpose of this paper is to discuss the prominent entrepreneurial skills set in the context of civil engineering practice in reference to the recommendations by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). This preliminary study was conducted by having interviews with civil engineering practitioners and thematic analysis was used to analyse the data. The findings have shown the prominent skills in the entrepreneurial skill set are mostly acquired in the managerial tracks in the civil engineering practice.
