Typically, a teacher with more positive work values is more capable of handling the teaching jobs. He/she holds a more optimistic attitude toward the educational tasks and devotes more into teaching innovations. Similarly, during the non-formal learning process, a venue worker is analogous to a teacher for school education, his/her job involvement or job burnout conditions also affect the education within a venue. It is thus necessary to investigate the job involvement or job burnout conditions of venue workers. In order to inspect the influence vocational education and work values of venue workers on their job involvement and burnout conditions, 573 venue workers were selected in this study for the investigation by vocational education questionnaire, work values questionnaire, job involvement questionnaire, and job burnout questionnaire. The results are described as follows. 1. Vocational education have a significantly positive influence on job involvement. 2. Vocational education have a significantly positive influence on job burnout. 3. Work values have a significantly positive influence on job involvement. 4. Work values have a significantly positive influence on job burnout. Based on these results, we proposed recommendations accordingly so that the vocational education can bring its effects to the maximum degree and the off-campus studies for the public can be greatly enhanced.
