Vocational Education, link and match, Community Service, High School/Vocational School


The gap between higher education graduates who are ready to use and those accepted to work in the business and industrial world (DUDI) in the digital era shows that there is a problem between the link and match between higher education and industry. The absorption of higher education graduates in industry has been tried to be overcome with Vocational Education which has been intensively developed over the last three years. The Ministry of Education and Culture calls for curriculums that are not in line with industry needs to be corrected. The low competency and skills of graduates have encouraged the development of VocationalEducation as a national issue, which focuses on improving the quality of human resources in the country. The community service carried out by the UNPAR Vocational Program aims to answer these challenges by providing vocational training to several high school students, especially those who have become UNPAR partners. Through this community service activity, with practicalmaterials that can be directly applied by students, it is hoped that awareness of the existence of Vocational Education in higher education will increase, and the link-match between graduates and workforce needs in industry can be achieved more well-connected and appropriate.
