An important function of Skill Training Institutions in Malaysia besides coaching the youth in obtaining the desired necessary skills, is to educate trainees from the aspects of physical, emotions, spiritual and intellectual development, as embedded in the National Education Philosophy (FPK). One of the primary challenges faced by these institutions is finding a cure for disciplinary problems among trainees. Therefore, the objective of this research is to identify disciplinary problems in Skill Training Institutions, specifically Pusat Giat MARA in the state of Johore and methods implemented by the trainers to address the problems. The research used a qualitative approach based on multiple case studies design. The sample for the study was selected based on purposive sampling technique and comprised of trainers who have served 10 years or more. Data were gathered via episodes of in-depth interviews, direct observation during theoretical and practical teaching sessions of trainers, and document review of trainees’ wrong behaviours. Saturation of data was achieved at the eighth participant among the selected trainers of the nine Pusat Giat MARA. Data were analyzed inductively by applying a thematic analysis through open, axial and selective coding. Findings showed that the various disciplinary problems discovered were truancy, smoking, drug abuse, stealing, fighting, defiance and insubordination. Besides, the data showed that trainers implemented various methods such as being considerate, giving advice and motivation through value attributes and religious aspects, and punishment method where necessary to address these problems. Further analysis of the findings produced themes that were used to develop several approaches based on religion, humanity and punishment method. The role of religion in moulding the characters and personalities is seen as an important resource with emphasis on programmes that educate the soul to be obedient to God and love to perform good deeds. Meanwhile, humanistic approach emphasizes the inculcation of moral values in the life of the trainees as per contained in the National Education Philosophy, while the punishment approach is meant as an educational process to be more responsible for all offenses committed. The approaches can be used to aid trainers in overcoming the disciplinary problems among trainees of Pusat Giat MARA, Johore in accordance with the nature of the problems.
