Tracer study of graduates of BBPVP Bekasi’s motion graphics and computer networks blended learning courses

These tracer study highlights the relevance and quality of the blended courses in computer network and motion graphics develop by ILO and BBPVP Bekasi.

ILO Jakarta’s InSIGHT II project and UNIQLO projects – funded, respectively, by the Government of Japan and Fast Retailing Co., Ltd. – have implemented a project focusing on digital skills and distance learning development. The project started with a rapid assessment of information and communication technology (ICT) skills demand in industry in Indonesia, which was published in October 2020. Based on the assessment’s findings concerning the most highly demanded ICT skills and further discussions with the Ministry of
Manpower (MOM) and the Centre for Vocational and Productivity Training in Bekasi (hereafter referred to as “BBPVP Bekasi”1) on their resources, two digital skills were selected: motion graphics skills and computer network skills.

The project then developed blended learning courses of these two skills. The courses were piloted with 32 students participated. Tracer study then conducted to provide information from the participants that can be used for minimizing any possible challenges and maximizing any positive aspects in terms of content, delivery and relevance of the blended learning courses, as well as to help further the development of the MOM’s vocational training centres.
