A New Step towards Narrowing the Achievement Gap in Turkey: “1,000 Schools in Vocational Education and Training” Project
Türkiye’de Okullar Arası Başarı Farklarını Azaltmaya Yönelik Yeni Bir Adım: Mesleki ve Teknik Eğitimde 1.000 Okul Projesi

Mahmut ÖZER [1]


The aim of this study is to examine the science learning styles of eighth grade students in terms of gender, having a study room, having internet access and future expectation variables. For this purpose, survey design was used. The sample of the study consisted of 584 eighth grade students in Kayseri. Grasha Reichmann Learning Styles Scale developed in 1996 and adapted to Turkish by Vural (2013) was used as a data collection tool. In the analysis of the data, descriptive statistical techniques and cross-table analysis were performed. It has been found that the students use collaborative and competitive learning styles at a high level and they use independent, dependent, avoidant, and participative learning styles at moderate level. In addition, while the dominant learning style of most of the students is dependent learning style. In terms of demographic variables, students' learning style preferences differ in terms of gender, having internet access, and future expectation, but it does not differ in terms of having an independent study room variable.
Türkiye’de 2023 Eğitim Vizyonu sonrasında mesleki eğitimde kaliteyi artırmaya yönelik sistematik adımlar atılmış ve kısa sürede sonuçları alınmaya başlanmıştır. Sektörlerle kurulan iş birliklerinin kapsamı ve ölçeği genişletilmiş ve kalite güvence sistemi kurulmuştur. Mesleki eğitimde işletmelerde beceri eğitimi güçlendirilmiş ve uygulamalı eğitime ağırlık verilmiştir. Mesleki eğitimde mükemmeliyet merkezleri olarak kurulan AR-GE merkezlerinde fikri mülkiyet çalışmaları odağa alınmış ve bu kapsamda patent, faydalı model, tasarım ve marka üretim ve tescil sürecine ağırlık verilmiştir. Milli Eğitim Bakanlığı mesleki eğitimde kaliteyi yaygınlaştırmak ve okullar arası başarı farkını azaltmak için yeni bir adım atarak ‘Mesleki Eğitimde 1.000 Okul Projesi’ni başlatmıştır. Bu çalışmada bu proje tanıtılmakta ve proje kapsamında atılacak adımlara değinilmektedir. Proje kapsamında mesleki eğitimde seçilen okulların altyapısı ve eğitim-öğretim ortamları iyileştirilecek ve zenginleştirilecektir. Diğer taraftan öğrencilere yönelik temel beceri eksikliklerini telafi etmeye yönelik eğitim desteği ve kişisel gelişim destekleri verilecektir. Ayrıca öğrencilerin velilerine yönelik hayat boyu öğrenme kapsamında eğitim desteği verilecektir. Süresi bir yıl olarak belirlenen proje başarılı bir şekilde tamamlandığında Türkiye’de mesleki eğitimde yaşanan iyileşme tüm okullara yayılmış ve toplam bir iyileşme sağlanmış olacaktır. Ayrıca, mesleki ve teknik Anadolu liseleri ile diğer lise türleri arasındaki başarı farkları da azalacaktır.
