In this article, a proposal for the curricula of technical and vocational high schools which would be based upon learning outcomes and student-centrism is presented. In the beginning, the trends in the European Union are presented and then a suggestion properly configured to Greek reality is presented. Researches show that the most of students opting for technical and vocational education have learning difficulties and school problems and therefore need different teaching approaches and more support on a personal level. Literature review verifies that the most appropriate learning environments and contexts to support the curricula in STVE in Greece, according to the particular characteristics of the student population should be student-centered environments and contexts (student-centered curricula). Also, literature review verifies that the form of the books that will support the proposed curricula in STVE in Greece should be student-centered. Taking into consideration the literature review, proposals four new curricula are given by the author.

Keywords: Curricula, secondary technical and vocational education, dialectical constructivism, learner-centered teaching and learning, learning difficulties, inductive reasoning.
