The Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) system is undergoing substantial change in the era of revolution 4.0 and globalization. In light of rapidly growing technology, there are potential impacts and implications for the world of technical and vocational education and trainings. The rapidly changing technology not only poses disruptions but also offers new opportunities in the world of TVET. These changes are inevitable and the opportunities are there to pursue. Series of successful UPI TVET Conferences from 2010-2018 had discussed and identified changes and challenges in areas of policies, skills and personal development, curriculum design, pedagogical innovations, and educational technology in TVET. Moving forward beyond the year of 2020, TVET system should ride the tide of this rapid technological advancement. Therefore, harnessing the growing technology to improve technical and vocational education and trainings is among the keys to excel in the region and beyond.

The 6th UPI International Conference on Technical and Vocational Education and Training (The 6th UPI TVET Conference) is held in conjunction with The 5th International Conference on Innovative Education and Technology (The 5th ICIET RMUTT). This joint conference is organized collaboratively by Faculty of Technology and Vocational Education Universitas Pendidikan Indonesia (UPI, Indonesia) and Rajamangala University of Technology Thanyaburi (RMUTT, Thailand). This scholarly activity is also within the framework of Regional Association of Vocational and Technical Education in Asia (RAVTE).

This joint conference invites TVET scholars, researchers, practitioners, decision makers, students, and stakeholders from Asia and all regions of the world. This forum provides a conducive environment for knowledge and experience exchange among participating stakeholders. This conference is an opportunity to share their knowledge, experiences, concepts, critical analysis, and good practices with their international peers.

The 6th UPI TVET Conference focuses on strategies to cope with changes in technical and vocational education and training practices by taking advantage of the rapid technological advancement. The theme is more specifically incline toward leveraging technology application in TVET in the region and beyond. This theme is in line with the 5th ICIET 2020 which focus on innovative education technology. Therefore, this joint conference discusses not only topics pertinent to vocational education and trainings, but also ICT and digital technology for education, innovation and engineering education, and educational pedagogy.
