The 3rd UPI International Conference on TVET was dedicated to the topic “Approaches and Achievements in TVET Personnel Profesional Development.” More than 132 papers, authored by scholars and professionals from Nigeria, Malaysia, Vietnam, Australia, Singapore, Afganistan, Namibia, Finland, Cambodia, and Indonesia, were submitted to the conference. The accepted papers for publication, as many as 50 papers, went through a strict peer-review by three expert referees. The topic areas of the papers are: 1) Professionalization Approaches and Experiences in Initial Teacher/Trainer Education and Continuing Professional Development; 2) The Contribution of Vocational Disciplines and Vocational Pedagogy to the Professionalization of TVET Staff; and 3) The Role of Work Practice and Experience in TVET Teacher/Trainer Professionalization.
We would like to thank the organizing commitee, the members of scientific committee and reviewers for their hard works in paper reviewing. We also would like to express our gratitude to the authors for contributing their research result to the conference. Special thank to Mr. Zeger Karssen from Atlantis Press for his great support in publishing the proceedings.
