The impact of economic globalization and the era of industrialization is increasingly fierce
competition in various economic activities, especially in the industrial sector. The development of the
industrial sector also depends on human resources as one of the influential production factors. Human
resource development is needed so that human resources emerge that have good technical, theoretical,
moral and conceptual abilities. The presence of qualified human resources will be very influential in
the process of achieving organizational goals. In order to realize an increase in industrial productivity
and contribution to the economy, the government is obliged to assist in the provision of skilled
industrial labour and in accordance with industrial needs. This article discusses the challenges of
implementing public private partnerships in the provision of human resources carried out by AKTekstil Solo and the Textile Industry Partners. The main thrust of this article is that there is still a gap
in the competency and soft skills of graduates of AK-Tekstil Solo. Data collection was carried out in
two stages, first collecting initial data through documentation and observation. The next step is to
deepen the statement and data, the researcher conducts in-depth interviews. Data analysis technique
that used is flow model analysis techniques by Miles and Huberman. The results show that the
challenges in implementing public-private partnerships in the development of human resources in the
textile and textile products industries are teaching quality; access and equity; and governance and
