Methodology: A participatory collaborative research between MTUN universities and DSD has been performed. The research has been conducted using multiple techniques such as content analysis to gain general idea of TVET lecturer core competencies, focus group interview and coffee table workshop session with 21 specialist TVET practitioners and educationists.
Main Findings: The minimum requirements and other characteristics for higher TVET lecturers were identified, which led to the acknowledgment of nine core competencies for NOSS TVET lecturer. Furthermore, a proposal on Master of Technology (MTVET) for TVET Lecturer and Instructor in Malaysia embedded with NOSS for TVET Lecturer has also been proposed.
Applications of this study: This study can be useful to higher TVET lecturers, educators and teaching engineers in MTUN and also industry’s trainers to pursue accreditation on TVET teaching and learning.
