School to Career (STC) is a programme initiated by the Curriculum Development Center, Ministry of Educatoin (CDC) and first implemented in schools in Malaysia in June 1998. Among the objectives of the programme are to enable students to follow the academic system based on their academic ability and to develop their potential skill through experience at work place. Based on the 1998 School to Career Report and the consecutive 1999 and 200 Pilot Project Supervisory Reports it was generally found that the programme has been well received by the parties directly involved in the programme. Therefore, a case study was conducted focusing on two schools that are implementing the STC programme with the aim of consolidating the on-going supervisory work by CDC. The two schools are Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Datin Onn Jaafar and Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Dato’ Seth, Batu Pahat, Johor. A total of seventy-one people comprising of 32 students, 16 teachers and 23 parents were selected as respondents of the study. Data was collected using a set of questionnaire and later analyzed using descriptive statistic. The findings reveal that both students and parents greatly support the STC programme. Nevertheless, the teachers were found to be in disagreement and less supportive towards the implementation of the programme. Based on the findings, several recommendations to upgrade the effectiveness of the STC programme have been highlighted for further action by the relevent education authorities.
