Abstract
This research aims to generate a vocational learning design for women in rural areas. The vocational learning in the design includes knowledge, attitudes, and skills which are needed by learners to be applied in their lives. Three methods were used in the design of the vocational learning, namely: regenerated frerian literacy through empowering community techniques (REFLECT), language experience approach (LEA) and participatory rural appraisal (PRA). The research used quasi-experiment with the research and development approach. Four research instruments were employed in the study: direct observations, interviews, documentations and tests. Thirty women from rural areas were taken as participants of the research. The findings of the research indicate that vocational education has encouraged the participants to have motivations and awareness of the importance of learning. Thus, they become more active in classrooms, understand learning materials better, and have lifeskills. Such learning is useful for their lives. Based on the results, it can be argued that vocational learning is effective for the learning of women in rural areas. It inspires them to be better individuals. The vocational learning meets the learning need of women in rural areas by giving them lifeskils
