The research programme extends and intensifies present data and experience in the domains of venture planning, design, and evaluation of vocational schooling as well as adult training and human useful resource development according to various nation-specific contexts. Since the whole education system in Indonesia is meant to be competency-primarily based, one would anticipate finding a transparent idea which classifies competencies into certain sorts, which defines ways and means to acquire these different types of competencies, and which permits the establishcation of a subset of competencies or a principle which pertains to the idea of transferable skills.
Accreditation and high quality control is provided by the national accreditation businesses for secondary colleges (Badan Akreditasi Nasional Sekolah / Madrasah – BAN-SM) and for higher training (Badan Akreditasi Nasional Pendidikan Tinggi – BAN-PT) that are formally unbiased institutions but in actual fact closely influenced by Kemdikbud due to standards defined in regulations on schooling standards.
Given the comparatively poor state of training analysis in Indonesia, only some common remarks may be made with respect to the implementation of the competence-based method, and more particularly the transferable skills method. Both documents apply to all academics and college lecturers for all types of academic institutions, including those of vocational training.
Kurikulum 2013 and its related laws on schooling standards include new definitions of competencies (compared with the 2005 and 2006 definitions). In addition, not one of the worldwide donors has till now targeted on enhancing nationwide academic capacities for TVET system development in Indonesia. The new curriculum, Kurikulum 2013, classifies abilities in a conventional method into religious and social competences, knowledge and abilities. From these definitions it is even more durable to deduct a concise definition of an idea of transferable expertise than from the competence itemizing for the years 2006 to 2013.
Until 2013, there have been hardly any specific provisions for vocational schooling or vocational trainer training except the nationwide framework curricula for TVET that are developed by the directorate for the development of vocational faculties (Direktorat Pembinaan Sekolah Menengah Kejuruan – Ditpsmk) in Kemdikbud’s directorate normal of secondary education.
