This study also intends to identify the relationship of the Senior Assistants Curriculum with the attitude of teachers in the implementation of co-curriculum in the state of Negeri Sembilan. This quantitative study employed a survey method with a population of 6349 teachers and a sample size of 366 teachers. Analysis of the data was performed through data collection using a questionnaire. Data were analyzed by descriptive statistics and Pearson correlation test using Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS) Version 25.0. Pearson Correlation Statistic was used to identify the relationships between the variables studied. The findings of the study show that the competency level of Co-curriculum Senior Assistants (GPK ko) is high (mean = 4.11, SD = .338) representing the technical skill dimension, followed by the meta-skills dimension (mean = 4.08 and SD = 334) and the lowest (mean = 4.02 and SD = .349) represents the soft skill dimension.
