The ASEAN integration process and in particular the upcoming ASEAN Economic Community in 2015 presume a higher efficiency in the TVET sector. TVET is called upon to meet the social and economic needs of the emerging societies in the ASEAN region. Those requirements are only achievable on regional and on national level with a high performing vocational teacher education system.

The "Regional Association for Vocational Teacher Education in East and Southeast Asia" (RAVTE) is one important answer to this challenging development with the focus on meeting the needs of integration and cooperation in the TVET sector in Asia.

RAVTE's vision is an effective and harmonized TVET sector policy for the region. The policy strives to meet the demands and challenges of ASEAN integration processes, based on political consensus of all participating parties whilst referring to regional standards and quality criteria in the TVET sector.

RAVTE's mission is to emphasize the importance of TVET in general and VTE in particular at regional and national levels. RAVTE intends to support personnel development in order to enhance TVET quality and efficiency as well as fostering the ongoing integration activities and developments in East and Southeast Asian countries.
