Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) in Thailand is familiarized with education quality assurance both being internal assessment and external assessment. They are accountable for quality assurance of the colleges. It is possible that many institutions and their internal organizations possess higher standard and can be developed into being excellent and beyond which lead to public recognition. Some of the institutions might have already been excellent but have never been accredited for excellence. However, some institutions do not have any of the qualities for being excellent but more or less exaggerate to build good image for the institutions for public acceptance. The researcher hopes it helps to clarify the significance of these issues. It is intended to make a contribution to the broader issue of how the concept of excellence can promote adherence to standards in agencies in education sector and drive quality enhancement. The ultimate goals of the research is to seek, study, compare and analyze to provide answers to the question that “In what dimension does Thailand need TVET Center of Excellence (CoE)?”. In order to achieve completeness of the content of this research; the researcher thus developed a questionnaire to examine and request opinions concerning “Center of technical and vocational excellence in the outlook or perception of the stakeholders” to gain an understanding of the real demands of stakeholders regarding the CoE for TVET in Thailand context.
