THE WORKER WELLBEING INDEX AND VOCATIONALDOMAINS EXPLORATION FOR VOCATIONAL WELLBEING TAXONOMY DEVELOPMENT
This study aims to identify the relevant wellbeing index and vocational domains in developing Vocational Wellbeing Taxonomy (VWT) that could enhance the wellbeing of skilled workers and Technical Vocational Education Training(TVET) practitioners. The era of modernization has given rise to new vocational, which emphasizes vocational training in educational institutions’ curriculum. Graduates are provided with specialized skills, which include vocational and academic skills required by the labor market. The industrial revolution requires many skilled workers to boost the industrial and economic sectors. In the field of work involving skills, there is a need for mastery of knowledge in the cognitive domain. However, hand-on skills are also salient to be competent in the field. In academic education, Bloom’s taxonomy does not meet the principles for assessing “wellbeing” via vocational skills to get a job in highly-skilled fields. Wellbeing is the value of an individual’s happiness and contentment, and it is closely related to psychological capacity and human capital skills. The concept of wellbeing is closely related to human capital that can be translated into individual skills, as highlighted in TVET. Unlike academic or liberal education, vocational education involves developing all aspects of individual competence to function well in the workplace. Thus, VWT is essential to provide a framework for determining objectives and evaluating learning outcomes related to vocational education. This taxonomy is important to the development of a comprehensive vocational curriculum. The index of wellbeing and vocational domains are classification in the form of VWT and are expected to contribute to workers’ wellbeing and sustainability growth. This initial study will employ a thorough review of relevant literature and theories.
