The World Conference on TVET (WoCTVET) is one of the official programs for the Faculty of Technical and Vocational Education (FPTV) at Universiti Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia (UTHM). This conference is held every two years, beginning in 2008. Up until 2022, a total of eight events have been successfully held. Table 1 displays the details of the locations and the number of manuscripts obtained from the first year to the eighth year of organizing the conference.

For the 2024 event, FPTV plans to collaborate with the Malaysia Research Institute for Vocational Education and Training (MyRIVET) to organize the 9th World Conference on TVET 2024 (WoCTVET 2024). The proposed format for the 9th WoCTVET 2024 is hybrid, with face-to-face sessions on the first and second days, followed by online sessions on the third day.


The objectives of this conference are to:
•    foster cooperation and goodwill among international scientific experts and researchers to catalyse and advance scientific knowledge about Technical Education and Vocational Training (TVET).
•    Attract education leaders, scientists, educators, and policymakers to jointly promote and increase cooperation to deal with regional and national responses more effectively.
•    Provide an opportunity for TVET researchers, policymakers, educators, and the community to discuss and find creative solutions to unsolved challenges in the research and implementation of TVET policies and programs.
•    Increase global awareness of the importance of the TVET field, especially teacher education, and encourage effective action against the trend of TVET development around the world.
•    Provide a platform for discussion, dissemination, and sharing of contemporary research as well as scientific knowledge and information in the field of TVET, especially in teacher education, to demonstrate that UTHM also appreciates the important contribution of teachers to TVET education and development.
