VET Training and Industry Partnerships : a Study in East Java, Indonesia

Helmy, Abdullah (2014) VET Training and Industry Partnerships : a Study in East Java, Indonesia. PhD thesis, Victoria University.


Across Indonesia, training partnerships have formed between vocational education and training institutions and industry to meet the demands of the 21st century labour market. For many industry managers, a partnership has become a necessary means to train unskilled workers as well as update skills required for the current workforce. Vocational education and training institutions, such as polytechnics, are emerging as one of the major and logical providers of workforce training that is necessary to revitalise and maintain the competitiveness of this nation’s industries and business. The purpose of case study research is to explore and examine the impacting factors in four VET providers of industry training partnerships in East Java, Indonesia. A comprehensive partnership construct is based on three factors identified by Lendrum (2003) and Callan and Ashworth (2004): environmental influences upon partnerships, a process/training model, and the role of people and relationships, were used to frame and guide this study.
