This study investigates how competency-based education and competency-based assessment prepare vocational education students towards becoming competent individuals upon entering the workplace. For this purpose, a case study was conducted in Akademi Binaan Malaysia (ABM), which provides training and courses for development and upgrading of skills among construction personnel. Data which were collected through interviews with academic staff and related documents, were analysed qualitatively and via document analysis, respectively. The results show that ABM has been applying a structure comprising stages of competency assessment in evaluating their students' competency.
