Makale Özeti: Human activities have accelerated greenhouse effect at an alarming level. It is everyone’s responsibility to take immediate and sustained action in mitigating the issues on global warming. Therefore, the purpose of this research is to assess the knowledge and awareness level of on-job training graduates on environmental sustainability issues. It is quasi-experimental research adopting a two-groups of pre-test and post-test design with two groups of on-job-training graduates students (GITN and T.M.) who attended seven hours course on environment sustainability. GITN group consists of 87 participants, and T.M. group consists of 73 participants. Pre-test and post-test consist of 15 environment-related questions that had been administrated via Kahoot in the classroom. Students feedback were collected via google form at the end of the course to explore their will of participating in environmental sustainability. Slides presentation, videos and movies were used as the intervention between the pre-test and the post-test. Data collected in both pre-test and post-test were analysed descriptively using 5-number summaries and boxplots. The findings showed that concerning the environmental sustainability knowledge level, both groups had no performance difference in the pre-test and had gained improvement in the post-test. However, TM group gave a better improvement than GITN group. The results indicated that both groups showed a high willingness to address global warming issues. We shall improve our future research by having practical sessions at recycling centres or alternative practical activities related to environmental sustainability issues.
