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