Industrial work practice is an essential program in vocational education. This study aims to analyze the level of capability of students who carry out work practices in large and small industries in Vocational Schools. In addition, it also measures the difference in the capability level of students who carry out work practices in large and small industries. This study uses a quantitative approach according to the design developed by Hoy and Adam. A total of 230 respondents came from public and private vocational schools in Karanganyar, Central Java, Indonesia. The data was collected using a Likert scale questionnaire with the lowest score of 1 and the highest score of 4. The data were analyzed with descriptive statistics and inferential statistics with a one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA). Results The capability level of students who carry out industrial work practices in large industries obtained a score of 31.29 – 58.69 in the "High" category, and small industries obtained a score of 31.23 – 59.47 in the "High" category. Although the statistics are in the high category, there are still significant differences between methodology and social and personal capabilities. Meanwhile, learning capabilities and technical capabilities have no significant difference. Students who practice work in large and small industries must be aware of maximizing the program because it is instrumental in supporting careers after graduating.
