The Influence of the Trainer’s Motivation and Cooperative Learning towards the Improvement of the Youth School Dropouts’ Vocational Competences

Rina Kaniati


The fact that there are many children and youths dropping out of school in Indonesia cannot be denied. The number of dropouts in elementary schools, junior, and senior high schools, and combined with those abandoning school before finishing their higher education program each year remains high. To mitigate this situation, there has been an expansion of educational services and opportunities for every child and teenager. Those that drop out of school can still get educational services through out-of-school education programs or non-formal education. This study aims to provide an overview of the implementation of life skills training for youth school dropouts offered by the Centre for Social Empowerment of Youths in the West Java Province; to determine the impact of trainers’ motivation, and cooperative learning toward the improvement of youth school dropout vocational competencies; and also to examine the relationships between cooperative learning and learners’ vocational competencies, as well as to know the relationships between motivation and the trainees’ vocational competencies.
