Practical guideline training for industry

To train selected industrial sector representatives in making use of the Practical Guide in developing and updating competency standards at their field.


In many countries, competency standards are used as a key reference document for training programmes, skills assessment, and professional performances at work. In a word, competency standards is an indispensable basis of the skills development system. However, to date, many occupations have not been covered by the National Competency Standards (SKKNI) in Indonesia. Many of the existing ones have not been regularly updated or expired while they need to be updated in line with skills demand and requirements.

Under the current mechanism, industrial sectors through their sectoral association have engaged to develop national competency standards. However, it seems not all industrial sectors involved actively in formulating Industrial competency standards. In addition, only few numbers of occupation standards to use as a reference for qualification assessment, capacity building activates and job recruitment.

To engage industrial sector in developing and updating competency standards, it is crucial to prepare a user-friendly guide for industry and practitioner allowing them to be able to develop and maintain competency standards effectively.

The guide will help to engage industrial sectors in competency standard development, which helps in promoting demand-driven skills development and addresses the issue of skills mismatch.

Therefore, the ILO’s Industry Skill for Inclusive Growth (InSIGHT) Phase-2/ Japan Skill project in collaboration with Indonesian Employers Association (APINDO) are formulating a Practical Guide for Industry in Developing Competency Standard.

Against this background, the ILO and the APINDO will organise Training on how to use and utilize the Practical Guide for Industry in Developing Competency Standard for Industry Sector Level.
