Abstract
The fourth industrial revolution and globalization have led to the strong intention to improve the performance quality of three-year vocational high school graduates (3-YP VHS). The improvement can be made precisely if it is initiated with research on graduate work performance. Therefore, this research aims to describe the work performance of the 3-YP VHS graduates and ways to follow it up. This research was conducted at 11 3-YP VHS’s, 13 business sectors and industrial sectors with the respondents consisting of school principals, teachers, students, and alumni of vocational high schools working in industries. The data were collected through a questionnaire, observation, and interviews, and analyzed using the descriptive technique completed with the qualitative one. The result of this research shows that in general the work performance of 3-YP VHS graduates is in a high category, except for the ethics which needs improvement. In addition, there are skills needed by industries but not developed in school, including a special skill to accomplish a task and managerial and public speaking skills. On the other hand, there are subject matters not directly needed by industries but developed in school, including social science, arts, electric installation, heavy instrument operation, introductory test analysis, and map measurement. Based on this result, there is a need to revise the curriculum, i.e. by including materials on special trainings which are interesting to students and relevant to the development of job market. It is also necessary to improve classroom instruction and evaluation by integrating character aspects in teaching and evaluation.
