Abstract

Contribution of higher education to the labour market has always been questioned especially when it comes to the readiness of the graduates for smooth transition from study to work and their ability to survive in the labour market. Graduate competencies are, in fact, considered more important in the recruitment process than the degree itself therefore the responsibility of the readiness lies in the hand of higher education institutions. It is therefore important to design a curriculum which will respond tothe needs of the labour market. Indonesia, a country with more than 4000 higher education instituions has just been introduced to the IQF-based curriculum in 2015, where each level of education (from primary up to post graduate level) is measured for a certain qualification fit for the level. The design of the curriculum follows certain steps where tracer study serves as one of the initial steps. This paper will present the utilisation of the result of tracer study in the curriculum development of a study program. List of competencies in the tracer study serves as tools in measuring competencies of the graduates in their respective workplaces. Indonesian standardized questionnaire on tracer study lists 29 competencies. For the purpose of developing this outcome-based curriculum, the list will also be discussed to provide a clear picture of those required by the labor market. The results of competency mapping can be used to develop a curriculum that is close to the demand of the labour market.
