Employer tracer study and perception of public vocational training center (BLK) graduates

The objective of this study is to provide a snapshot of the absorption level of BLK graduates by industry, and to capture employer opinions of the competency and performance of BLK graduates.

This study also suggests that there is a need to have industries more engaged in developing the BLK curricula, and for more effective discussion forums between BLK and industry on skills development. This is in line with the ILO’s sectoral approach to addressing skill gaps and mismatches.

This study is timely as the Government of Indonesia (GoI) is currently prioritising human development and improving technical vocational education and training.
