The development of education on the national and international levels have created an idea for educators and academia to find solutions toward the issues and problems regarding education in the 21st century.

Based on the data from Education Development Index (EDI), countries such as Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Vietnam, Myanmar and Cambodia are included in the middle-ranking category in EDI countries, while other countries such as Brunei Darussalam are in higher level. In other words, the quality of education needs to be strengthened more effectively to ensure that education in this region is at par with education in developed countries.

As such, this is as an effort to build a global network and enhance collaboration and ideas sharing in research to improve the quality of education, thus creating excellent students.

Faculty of Education collaboration with Malaysian Technical and Vocational Education Association (PPTVM) has successfully organized Technical and Vocational Education International Seminar for the first time on 25-26 August 2014 and second on 28-20 November 2016. Additionally, the National Seminar on Technical and Vocational Education was held at UTM on 9-10 December 2009 which was a 3rd national seminar.

The survival of these two programs has attracted the attention of academicians to gather and share research findings in the development of quality and affordable education.

International and national conferences are an effort to examine the cultural impacts, applying findings from domestic and foreign research findings, studying the proper teaching and learning process that should be implemented to ensure that the quality education can be maintained on the right track. It is also in line with the efforts to empower quality education in facing the globalization towards human capital development and national integrity.
