The primary instrument for data collection was a questionnaire and the reliability of the questionnaire as certain using Cronbach’s Alpha test. In this context, TVET serves as a tool to help students with special needs acquire the necessary skills and knowledge to compete in the job market. Therefore, this research is expected to provide insights into how TVET teaching and learning can be tailored to the needs of students with special needs so that these challenges can be overcome by trainee teachers at IPGKPT. The findings of this research also could help trainee teachers and the education system to support students with special needs and improve the quality of education they receive.
