A teacher of Technology and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) has an important role in the learning process of students in vocational education because the quality of teachers determines that of graduates of vocational schools. Therefore, the teacher candidates in TVET must have work experiences in the industry, so that they produce students who have high quality and can compete in the labour market. The teacher candidates must be prepared through a process of quality education to become professional teachers in the future. Providing professional fashion teacher candidates is not easy, for it takes a certain curriculum content and long processes.
