Abstract
This paper aims to analyze the Female Labor Force Participation (FLFP) in North Aceh District’s vocational village program. We researched four vocational villages in North Aceh, namely Ulee Madon, Pande, Alue Leuhob, and Alue Capli. Researchers obtained data through surveys and structured-interviews with parties involved in implementing the village vocational program in North Aceh. The survey results were analyzed using a mixed-methods approach. The results showed that the vocational program to increase the workforce’s capacity in North Aceh District had not achieved maximum results. The vocational village program’s impact has not been felt directly by women workers on improving their business field skills. Of the 76 workers and business actors who became respondents, only 39.5% positively impacted training on the quality and quantity of products, business management, marketing, and especially their income. The FLFP rate explanation will be divided into program planning, training, procurement of raw materials, production, marketing, and financial management. The results showed that the FLFP rate at each stage was still shallow. The highest level of FLFP was at the planning, training, production, and the material procurement stage, while the marketing and financial management stages were still shallow. The authors concluded that the local community’s social fabric regarding women’s status in the family determines the level of FLFP. For this reason, FLFP mainstreaming is required based on Gender Equity and Social Inclusion (GESI) and local wisdom to increase the economic growth of rural communities.
