This study proposes a rational basis for pre-vocational. education (PVE) teacher\ud preparation and training in Jordan based on a thorough assessment of the teacher's\ud role and responsibilities. Qualitative and quantitative data collection methods were\ud employed. These included semi-structured interviews with members of the Jordanian\ud National Teams for PVE Curriculum Development and for Supervision on PVE\ud Curriculum Development, as well as with PVE supervisors in Jordan. Selfcompletion\ud questionnaires were also administered to a sample of PVE teachers and\ud educational supervisors. Asserting that design and implementation of a successful\ud training programme should be founded on the job activities and competencies\ud required, this study presents a job description for the PVE teacher, analyses the\ud activities involved, and identifies the associated competencies. The study proceeds to\ud scrutinise the components of WE teacher preparation, analyses the current delivery\ud of PVE in Jordan, identifies some deficiencies, and considers potential corrective\ud action. The study also discusses the necessity of vocational field experience for the\ud PVE teacher. Current programmes of PVE teacher preparation are critically\ud examined, shortcomings are identified, and proposals for improvement are discussed
