Students’ learning was temporarily interrupted due to the unexpected closure of academic institutions brought by the pandemic. As a result, pre-service Technical-Vocational Education (TVE) teachers struggled when it comes to their well-being and mental health, educational logistics, and due to restrictions. In order to cope with these identified problems, the participants resorted to positive reframing, reconnecting with interests and learning preferences, and seeking instrumental support. This study recommends that higher education institutions must recalibrate the Field Study (FS) curriculum, capacitate instructors, and update technological infrastructures to enable the effective continuity of teaching and learning in TVE even in turbulent conditions.


Keywords –curriculum, higher education, pre-service education teachers, online learning, teaching.
