This study aimed to determine the impact transformational leadership on employee engagement teachers of state vocational high schools. This research uses the quantitative-causal approach as the method of survey research. This approach was chosen to analyze the relationship patterns between variables with the aim to know the direct effect of a set of exogenous variable toward the endogen variable. In this research, transformational leadership is an exogenous variable, and employee engagement is an endogen variable. This research was conducted in The State Vocational High Schools in Depok City (West Java Province). The analysis unit in this research is the teachers from The State Vocational High Schools. The population is all the teachers in State Vocational High Schools which live in Depok with a total of 166 teachers out of 4 schools. The samples were selected with the simple random sampling method by choosing the members of the population randomly, ignoring the classes (levels) of each of the population members, bearing in mind that the population is homogenous and has a large number. From the existing population, the number of samples was calculated with the Slovin formula. Therefore, the sample used in this research is 118 teachers. To obtain data in this research, a questionnaire was used for the two variables: transformational leadership (X), and employee engagement (Y). All the questionnaires were filled in by teachers from The State Vocational High Schools in Depok. The analysis technique used is the path analysis.
