Merdeka Curriculum is a manifestation of systemic changes in Indonesian education as a result of the learning crisis that has been going on for a long time and has been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Merdeka Curriculum will be implemented starting in 2021 until it becomes the national curriculum in 2024. The government provides options based on school readiness. One of the spirits in this curriculum is co-curricular learning known as the Pancasila Student Profile Strengthen Project (P5). P5 aims to internalize the character of the Pancasila student profile which has seven themes, one of which is typical for vocational secondary school students is work. This theme facilitates students in developing an understanding of employment, job opportunities, and work readiness as transferable skills. The focus of this study is to describe P5 as a forum for developing students' transferable skills in vocational secondary schools that implement the Merdeka Curriculum in Kediri City. Questionnaires were filled in by 93 grade X Mechanical Engineering students. Quantitative descriptive data analysis techniques were used to determine the mean indicators of transferable skills, namely describing students' perspectives developed from the Indonesian National Work Competency Standards (SKKNI). The results of the study show that students' perspectives on indicators of transferable skills are leadership and responsibility (3.26), having initiative and being able to self-manage (3.20), communication (3.16), flexibility and adaptability (3.10), critical thinking and problem-solving (3.10), collaboration (3.10). P5 is the right forum for developing transferable skills in vocational secondary schools as shown by positive student responses.
