This study was aimed to discuss the role of Creative Product and Entrepreneurship (CPE) subject as a result of revision of curriculum that includes normative, adaptive, productive, and local content components to improve graduates’ competences. This study was carried out under case study qualitative research to analyze the effectiveness of CPE subject and students’ level of competences due to the CPE learning. The data were collected through thorough interactive interviews, focus group discussion, and questionnaire and then validated through triangulation technique. The study involved principal, teachers, and students of Poncokusumo vocational school in Malang as one formal education institution in rural area that begins to develop rapidly. Based on descriptive statistic analysis, it was found that Creative Product and Entrepreneurship (CPE) subject has no significant effect in improving vocational school students’ competence. Students’ entrepreneurship hasn’t been formed well, students’ skills are still categorized on basic level, local sources haven’t been used optimally despite the maximum principal’s contribution to develop the CPE learning. The results of the study imply that Creative Product and Entrepreneurship (CPE) as a subject that integrates theory and practice has not been carefully taken into consideration by the stake holders that also shows that principals’ supervision on CPE learning in needed to gain significant effects on students’ skill as one of the ways to decrease number of unemployment of the graduates.
