Abstract
Vocational education prioritizes learning outcomes in the form of skills, so that graduates are ready to work. The applied learning model must be carefully selected in order to produce optimal skills. This research tries to develop cooperative learning model of learning while helping type adopted from culture-based learning model. The learning model has been proven capable of producing many skilled workers in various fields, carpentry, agriculture, animal husbandry, or fisheries. The results of observations and interviews show that the learning process occurs informally during the cooperative process based on the principle of interdependence. The junior worker learns while helping a more senior worker. Senior workers also learn while helping supervisors. Thus the process takes place continuously. Once a junior worker becomes a senior worker and re-recruits junior workers. While senior workers become supervisors and accompany other senior workers. The learning model can be implemented in vocational schools by preparing workshops according to the skills they want to learn. Students learn from the lowest level of skills then gradually increase to the highest level of skill. The process of tiered coaching from senior to junior occurs continuously. Teachers act as supervisors and facilitators. This learning model more guarantees the alignment of process in the learning of skills, attitudes, and behavior, so that the competencies and character of the graduates are more integrated.
