Abstract

Employment Preparation Programmes (EPP) are not part of the Special Education Integrated Programme (SEIP) curriculum in Malaysia, and there is no specific operational guidance provided to schools. As a result, EPPs are currently performed in a non-uniform way. This study aims to explore the implementation of EPPs, delineate the challenges faced by educators; teachers and head of department, and identify the areas of improvement needed. Semistructured of teachers and department heads interviews were carried out to elicit data from a purposive sample of fifteen EPP participants. Data was also collected about special needs learners’ activities using an observational method, in a real-life setting, over twenty observations: four observations in each of the five schools. Relevant documents; module and annual report were then be collected from the respective schools. This paper is concerned with one example of data analysis from a broader piece of ongoing research
