The study determined the level of awareness, preparedness and readiness of the Technical-Vocational Education Institutions (TVEI) in the implementation of the K-12 curriculum in Zamboanga Peninsula. The sample consisted of three hundred eight (308) faculty and staff of the selected TVEI in Zamboanga Peninsula for the School year 2014-2015. Both quantitative and qualitative research design using descriptive survey method and total enumeration sampling in the selection of the respondents was employed. A  Likert-Type questionnaire was used in the gathering of data. The findings showed that there was a significant relationship in the level of awareness, preparedness and readiness of the TVEI in the implementation of K-12 curriculum in terms of curriculum, faculty, equipment, facility, funding and infrastructure. However, there are still possible problems that the TVEI had identified in the implementation of the grades 11 and 12 as perceived by the respondents.
