The method of this study was descriptive qualitative. The tehniques of data collection were observation, interview, and documentation, while to test the validity in this study used the triangulation method. The study came up with the conclusions that: (1) the development of pedagogogic and professional competiency in the teachers of vocational high school named at Public Vocational High Schools 2 In Toli-Toli District is already quite good where the lack of facilities in the school environment is more specifically in the classroom. But the teaching teachers with a total of 29 people have already held a bachelor’s degree, so that scientific mastery is good; (2) constraints that hinder the development of pedagogic and professional competency of toli-toli vocational high school named at Public Vocational High Schools 2 In Toli-Toli District teachers where facilities provided by schools are still inadequate or lacking the teaching and learning process can develop so that conventional styles become choices. The shortage of civil servant tachers so that the number of non-civil servant teachers with competency quality is still lacking in addition to lack of linearity of skills by flooding subject until there is no role from the regional government, namely the education office in evaluation and payment performance standars as temporary teachers: (3) the efforts made in pedagogic and professional compentence of Toli-Toli vocational high school named at Public Vocational High Schools 2 In Toli-Toli District teachers are by requiring the use of learning models that can be used to improve the quality of education and add facilities to support the teaching and learning process and also involve the government in evaluating teacher performance through high school / vocational school teacher supervisors and also evaluation for schools through school accreditation. It was recommended that: (1) Appoinment of honorarium teachers must go through the teachers competency test in order to get good teaching staff.: (2) The use of facilities to help the learning process needs to be added: (3) the role of the school committee must always be involved in the process of progress of the school
According to the opinions of the teachers working in the Vocational and Technical Anatolian High Schools affiliated to the Ministry of National Education which are in Giresun province central district, two different scales were used in this study to determine the Effective Schooling Levels according to the numbers of European Union Projects carried out by vocational high schools. The first one is the "Demographic Information Form". With this form, participants' gender, age, branch, occupational seniority and the number of European Union projects carried out were determined. The second scale is the "Effective School Scale" developed by Şişman  to determine the effectiveness levels of schools. The scale consists of 56 items, and Şişman  found the Cronbach-Alpha score as .93. In this research, the validity and reliability studies of the data collection tool were also carried out. In the internal consistency test of the questionnaire, the Cronbach-Alpha coefficient was found to be .93 same as Şişman .

The fulfillment of AAS instrument facilities for learning in each Industrial Chemistry Vocational School became a quite lively discussion due to the price of AAS which ranges from hundreds of millions so that the ability of schools to purchase these instruments is minimal and possible solutions can be made by seeking grants to the Ministry of Education and Culture or other private parties. The results of the pre and post test analysis showed an increase in teacher skills by an average of 68% which can be seen in Figure 2. The value is quite large because most teachers do not yet know the basic concepts of using AAS while some teachers have previous experience because they have worked in the chemical industry before become a teacher. Teachers have long since left the basic science of chemical waste analysis that has rarely been used in learning materials in vocational high schools. This case study provides a new experience of the teacher in teaching chemical waste analysis material using AAS instruments which later on the teacher's learning experience can be applied by students in the workplace.

Abstract The importance of ethical dimension of leadership is a fact accepted by everyone. In spite of this, very few empirical studies have been carried out on this issue in the field of educational administration considering the significance of ethical values in leadership. This study was carried out to investigate vocational high school teachers’ perceptions about their principals’ ethical leadership behaviors. The study was conducted using the survey method and perceptions’ of the teachers working at vocational and technical schools located in the center of Yozgat regarding their principals’ ethical leadership behaviors were tried to be determined. According to the findings of the study the teachers agreed that the school principals often performed ethical leadership behaviours.

Pedersen, Grønhøj, and Thøgersen (2015) high- light that first, healthy eating interventions should aim at strengthening self-efficacy and posi- tive outcome expectations among adolescents, and second, the family context should be in- cluded when implementing healthy eating interventions. For example, in most cases, at home the parents decide with which food the family will nourish itself. That means that a success- ful school gardening program should include school and family specific factors, which is necessary to effectively promote healthy, sustainable eating patterns among pupils.

Abstract: A large amount of studies has been conducted to deeply comprehend the relationship between school facilities and students’ performance in academic term; however, it appears that there is a limited amount of studies for this objective on vocational education. To contribute for the need of this concern, this study aimed to explore the relationship of school facilities on students’ performance in vocational high schools. A qualitative methodology was employed, with structured- interviews as the instruments for data collection. Participants were five doctoral students and one post-doctoral student, and they were doing their studies at a university in Douliu county, Taiwan. All participants’ responses were recorded and then transcribed. Based on participants’ responses, in vocational technical high school, classroom facilities, laboratory facilities and playgrounds highly affect students’ learning performance. Also, the obtained data emphasize the availability, quality and quantity of equipment in classrooms and workshop rooms. Obtained data also presented the interesting point, role of playground to learning performance of students in vocational high schools. The study suggested the concern about playgrounds to enhance the motivation and learning effectiveness of students in vocational high schools.
programs. At the high school level, first of all we differentiate between general high schools and the vocational high schools. There are a variety of different types of general high schools such as science high schools, Anatolian high schools, private high schools and general (public) high schools. These schools differ widely in terms of quality of education. This was identified as one of the sources of inequity in the discussions of the previous section. The performance shown by the graduates of these high schools at the UEE also varies widely. The admission rate to a four year university program which shows the proportion of the applicants who are placed into a four year program is as follows. For the applicants from the social sciences high schools the admission rate was the highest with 82.17 percent. The next highest rate was for the private science high school applicants with 69.43 percent. The admission rate was 63.41 percent for the public science high school applicants, 60.45 percent for the Anatolian high school applicants and 59.56 percent for the foreign language private high school applicants. In contrast, the admission rate for the general public high schools which comprise the majority of the general high schools, was only 22.78 percent (Student Selection and Placement Center, 2012). These statistics indicate that the applicants who are most successful in the UEE come from the science high schools, Anatolian high schools or the private high schools.

In the past, Jordan’s public education and training authorities engaged only very little with skills demands in the labor market or with social partners. However, over the past half-decade or so the government and ETVET authorities have taken tangible, if incomplete, steps to engage with the social partners, who have also begun to treat ETVET policies as a priority. Jordan has been moving towards a tripartite system of industrial relations as part of a national strategy to develop a knowledge-based economy and society with improved education, training and skills supply, and a National Employment Strategy has been adopted for 2011–20. Jordan’s labour market shows growth with job creation, yet unemployment remains obstinately high, in part as a result of inward migration of labor (Qusay et al., 2018; Anja, 1997; Ardith, 2012; Christine and Tom, 2000).

From 2013 to 2019, the E Arsip model has been tested in various studies and training activities in the MGMP, which are followed by archival subjects. Until now, several schools have also used E Arsip as a learning medium in implementing electronic archival management learning. However, the development of E Arsip is very much needed to create electronic archival management learning media that are following the needs of teachers and students, which can later be widely used. Based on the results of surveys and interviews conducted, it was concluded that the need for additional coverage of material in the E Arsip in the form of shrinking activities and archive retention.

This formula became the basis for enhancing the vocational students' motivation. Increased motivation to learn is not solely dependent on educators, facilities, infrastructures of education, but rather an active role in teaching students determine the success of competency achievement. Students who are highly motivated will tend to have high personal responsibility, willing to take risks, have a plan of study, to be serious, diligent, active in learning, do not feel complacent, always trying to learn the best results. n j dd w j d ).

Technical and vocational education and training (TVET) has emerged as one of the most effective human resource development strategies that African countries need to embrace in order to train and modernise their technical workforce for rapid industrialisation and national development (Afeti, 2014). In almost all countries in Africa, large numbers of graduates coming out of the formal school system are unemployed, although opportunities for skilled workers do exist in the economy (Baiyin, 2004). This situation has brought into sharp focus the mismatch between what schools offer and labour market skill demands (Savage, 2009). Another reason that is often cited for the incidence of high
Data collection techniques in this study used literature study techniques, observations to see learning activities, facilities, and infrastructure in the classroom, interviews to obtain data from teachers, and questionnaires to obtain data from students. The instruments in this study were made by paying attention to 4 aspects: (1) Difficulties of students and teachers material inventory of facilities and infrastructure of the 2013 curriculum; (2) Types of media used; (3) Availability of facilities for supporting learning media; (4) The need for web-based interactive multimedia. The four aspects are used because they are considered the main aspects that need to be observed in the implementation of the use and needs of the media for learning inventory of facilities and infrastructure in vocational school.

Conservative politicians have been foremost among those claiming that poor language skills are at the root of all these problems. The oft-repeated mantra is that German language skills are the foundation for integration (see e.g. Beauftragte der Bundesregierung für Migration, Flüchtlinge und Integration 2006). Implicitly the blame is often cast on parents; some suggest that the parents place loyalty to the culture of origin before the best interests of their children. But this has begun to change. The former CDU integration minister in the state of North-Rhine Westphalia, Armin Laschet, recently published a book called Die Aufsteigerrepublik: Zuwanderung als Chance (‘The Upwardly Mobile Republic: Migration as an Opportunity’). One of the chapters is called ‘Education, education, education.’ Laschet stresses the importance of learning German, but concedes that migrants typically benefit from first learning the mother tongue of their parents. He is unusual among conservative politicians in arguing that schools should be reformed, rather than simply demanding that migrants perform better within the existing system. Some see this as part of an effort by the CDU to present a more immigrant- friendly face (e.g. Bade 2009).

Auspicing in vocational education means an organisation can carry out training and/or assessment activities on behalf of another organisation, where the organisation auspicing is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO), and the group auspiced is not. It will often occur in partnerships between an RTO and an enterprise, but may also entail agreements between training organisations. However, the term ‘auspicing’ appears not to be commonly used or commonly understood in the VET sector. Partnerships, collaborations and alliances are terms that are more commonly used. For the purpose of this study, these words are used interchangeably. The key feature of this type of partnership is that the registered training organisation is responsible for the quality assurance of the assessments conducted on their behalf and the issuing of the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) qualifications and/or statements of attainment. Thus, the responsibility for the integrity of the outcomes of assessment rests with the RTO.

The study faced some limitations because conducting the study with all of the high school students in the city would be difficult in terms of time and cost. Because of this, only five different types of high schools in the city center (excluding districts and villages) were included in the study. For the study sample, one class was selected for each grade. The study was conducted with those students who agreed to participate. No exclusion criteria were defined for study participants.
same through three key elements — non- profit initiatives, profit enterprises, and consumers. Currently, there are many skilling opportunities approached by the government, the private sector and the collaboration between the two. The current focus of skill development has shifted to the learner and his/her requirements and expectations from vocational education and training; in order to empower the working population and other citizens of the country, it is essential to put emphasis upon skill development (Knowledge paper, 2012). India has the world's second largest population. The PGR for the country is 1.25. A very large number of India's population, about 50%, is below the age group of 24. This provides the nation with a large workforce for many decades, helping in its growth. The government is training a 400 million-workforce, which is larger than the
Based on the results that come up by interviewing students of the high secondary schools we will come with a standard response, yes, of course. If we analyse the structural processes of the European Union countries, than in Kosovo we will have to build a modern education system directed towards vocations, since the education system is not a tool of a free market but it is a generator for shaping and forming the individual on accessing the free labour market as a specialist for the respective branch. The state should guarantee a functional and modern education system which responds to the societal and economical needs. An education based on professional training would have economical perspective as a result and a positive impact on decreasing the unemployment that would in a horizontal way stop the youth migration towards western countries, a phenomenon that is growing nowadays in Kosovo.
