The purpose of this study was to analyze the effect of the Trikaya Parisudha Learning Model (TPLM) on Critical Thinking Skills (CTS). This research was a quasi-experimental study using a pretest-posttest control group design. The study population was the 6th semester of elementary school student teachers of totalling six classes or 168 people. The study sample was two classes or 52 people, selected by random cluster sampling. CTS data were collected with a test instrument. It was analyzed using descriptive statistics and inferential statistics. Descriptive statistics are used to describe the average value and standard deviation, while inferential statistics are used to test hypotheses with a t-test at a significance level of 5%. The results of data analysis showed that the average pretest score was 65.23 in the experimental group and 64.27 in the control group. Meanwhile, the posttest means the score was 79.23 in the experimental group and 66.62 in the control group. The posttest t-test results obtained a value of t = 0.344 with sig. = 0,0001 0.05. These results indicate that the experimental group is better than the control group. Thus it can be concluded that there is a significant influence of TPLM on elementary school student teachers’ CTS. Therefore, lecturers are expected to be able to use this model to improve students' critical thinking skills.

Employers and societies more and more ask for capable and ready to work graduates, possessed with some amount of competences when getting into the workforce. But they want for very skilled employee has been mounting, the difference between capabilities of graduates and educations searched by the employers remain to be a thoughtful concern among many nations. The factors that affect the growth and sustainability of the graduates are solely due to lack of non-technical skills such as team spirit, communicative skills, decision making and solving the problems that exist in course of time and creative skills. The important subject addressed by the current study is to identify the factors that influence the science and technology (S&T) graduates’ in respect to fitness for purpose. The findings showed that the S&T graduates voiced their opinions on the importance of non-technical skills which are essential for their survival and development in their respective professions. The vision-2020 has located science and technology as significant as the educational policies are often observed as effective forces behind economic growth in industrialized countries.
