This project focused on making recommendations for possible curricular improvements that would help future graduates of Photharam Technical College (PTC) to be well prepared to enter the rapidly evolving Thai textile industry. PTC is a textile-based vocational school located near several textile factories in Ratchaburi Province, Thailand. We sought to determine the effectiveness of the school's curriculum by analyzing the perceptions of four stakeholders: textile employers, alumni, faculty and students. Through comparisons of these different viewpoints, we were able to determine areas where the school's curriculum might be enhanced. Furthermore, feedback concerning our findings was obtained from experts in the fields of education, labor, and textiles, which was used to help refine our final recommendations.
