STUDY OF PRODUCTIVE LESSON TEACHING IN VOCATIONAL HIGH SCHOOL RELATIONSHIP RELATED TO THE READINESS OF GRADUATES IN DEALING WITH WORK WORLD IN SOUTH SULAWESI
The results of the official release of the Central Statistics Agency of South Sulawesi Province stated that graduates of the Vocational High School (SMK) level were ranked among the highest in terms of non-absorption of graduates in the world of work. This fact is ironic because SMK graduates are graduates who are projected to be ready to work. Aligning the competencies of SMK graduates with their absorption in the world of work cannot be separated from productive subject learning. It is also a fact that until now the government has only been able to provide a small amount of teaching materials in the form of textbooks or modules for productive subjects for teachers and students. Most productive teaching materials are managed by the teachers who support these subjects. Therefore, a study on 2013 curriculum-based teaching materials for productive subject groups of Vocational Schools especially in South Sulawesi related to the readiness of SMK graduates to face the world of work is very much needed. This type of research is evaluative research in the form of ex-post facto. From the results of the study and analysis, it was concluded that productive subject teachers have tried to arrange teaching materials in accordance with the 2013 Curriculum as a teacher's handbook. According to the perception of productive subject teachers, the instructional materials compiled are considered to have been sufficiently in accordance with the development needs of DUDI and meet the adequacy of graduates' competencies and skills. Obstacles that are found in the field are the number of productive subject learning materials is not proportional to the number of students and the learning process is constrained by the lack of teaching aids or training tools in the form of trainers and practicum needs that are in line with DUDI's development needs. The factors that become obstacles cause the productive learning process in Vocational Schools in South Sulawesi to be not optimal which can impact on the readiness of SMK graduates to enter the workforce.
