Abstract

Education enhances sustainable development and improves humans' capacity to address environmental, social and economic issues. Green skills will help keep Malaysia ahead of environmental challenges and opportunities in a fast-changing global and political landscape. Further, one ACET 2015 agenda is integrating green skills to help the TVET program achieve sustainable development, by curbing poverty and developing the economy, for example. This paper discusses green skills for TVET teacher trainees, to develop environmental sustainability. Data was collected through online questionnaires of 111 (99%) teacher trainees and 38 (86%) lecturers. The questionnaire was developed and adapted from the Theory of Ecological Modernisation and Model of Sustainable Development. A basic descriptive statistic reported the findings from the analysis. They show fourteen applications of green skills for TVET teacher trainees that invite consideration. They should be integrated into the TVET curriculum, learning contents, teaching-learning processes, and reflected in any educational institute policies and practices..
