Similar to other higher education institutions, knowledge sharing among highly skilled instructors and other instructors is important in improving the quality of training and skills development in the Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) institutions. In this borderless world, information technology enables knowledge sharing activities to be carried out more efficiently, quickly and widely. Understanding the influencing factors of knowledge sharing activities in TVET institutions is important since a number of failures have been reported due to the lack of awareness in contributing new knowledge. Therefore, this study is conducted to identify the factors that influence knowledge sharing activities among instructors in TVET institutions and to propose a framework to the knowledge sharing activities. A quantitative study involving 96 respondents was conducted and the data that was analysed using multiple regression analysis found that there are four (4) factors that contribute to knowledge sharing activities in TVET institutions: organizational, content, cooperation and technological. The proposed framework is expected to assist in the development of a repository of knowledge sharing among instructors in TVET institutions.
