- the improvement of professional vocational education teachers in the context of lifelong education is a series of comprehensive systems that are continuously performed, both formally and informally. Life experience is the structure of teachers built on the perfect combination of cultural process of verbal skills, mastery of teaching materials and professional teacher’s mastery of learning methods. The process of professional competences improvement is not a natural process that is routine, traditional and running independently. Instead, it is a process that requires strategic, clear, and actual planning in a structured system in order to achieve better education. In fact, dichotomous debate occurs with pros and cons, either professional competences improvement is a savior god in improving the quality of education, and on the other hand, criticism is also emerging. In general, the process of professional competences improvement is a fragmented activity, a coherent meeting that is decontextualized and isolated from real classroom situation. The approaches to know the professional competences improvement of vocational education teacher can be conducted with various patterns and models. This research aims to know the profile improvement of professional vocational education teachers who have knowledge of the culture. The method which is used is survey by descriptive research approach. The population of this research is vocational education teachers with expertise in the field of electric power which have possessed certification at SMKN (Vocational Education) in West Java. The finding of research shows that the improvement of professional vocational teacher’s competences has not become an integral structure in the constellation of continuous professional development and the commitment on the improvement of professional vocational teacher’s competences that include academic, personality, ethno-pedagogy, and self-efficacy competence should be developed in the context of local cultural substance strength
