  1. 1. History of TESDA Short Courses Offered Other Special Programs
  2. 2.  The Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) was established through the enactment of Republic Act No. 7796 otherwise known as the "Technical Education and Skills Development Act of 1994", which was signed into law by President Fidel V. Ramos on August 25, 1994. This Act aims to encourage the full participation of and mobilize the industry, labor, local government units and technical-vocational institutions in the skills development of the country's human resources. The merging of the National Manpower and Youth Council (NMYC) of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE). The Bureau of Technical and Vocational Education (BTVE) of the Department of Education, Culture and Sports (DECS), and The Apprenticeship Program of the Bureau of Local Employment (BLE) of the DOLE gave birth to TESDA.
  3. 3. The fusion of the above offices was one of the key recommendations of the 1991 Report of the Congressional Commission on Education, which undertook a national review of the state of Philippine education and manpower development. It was meant to reduce overlapping in skills development activities initiated by various public and private sector agencies, and to provide national directions for the country's technical- vocational education and training (TVET) system. Hence, a major thrust of TESDA is the formulation of a comprehensive development plan for middle- level manpower based on the National Technical Education and Skills Development Plan. This plan shall provide for a reformed industry-based training program that includes apprenticeship, dual training system and other similar schemes.
  4. 4. TESDA is Mandated to: 1. Integrate, coordinate and monitor skills development programs; 2. Restructure efforts to promote and develop middle-level manpower; 3. Approve skills standards and tests; 4. Develop an accreditation system for institutions involved in middle-level manpower development; 5. Fund programs and projects for technical education and skills development; and 6. Assist trainers training programs.
  5. 5. At the same time, TESDA is expected to: 1. Devolve training functions to local governments; 2. Reform the apprenticeship program; 3. Involve industry/employers in skills training; 4. Formulate a skills development plan; 5. Develop and administer training incentives; 6. Organize skills competitions; and 7. Manage skills development funds.
  6. 6. Overall, TESDA formulates manpower and skills plans, sets appropriate skills standards and tests, coordinates and monitors manpower policies and programs, and provides policy directions and guidelines for resource allocation for the TVET institutions in both the private and public sectors. Today, TESDA has evolved into an organization that is responsive, effective and efficient in delivering myriad services to its clients. To accomplish its multi-pronged mission, the TESDA Board has been formulating strategies and programs geared towards yielding the highest impact on manpower development in various areas, industry sectors and institutions.
  7. 7. Mandate The Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) is the government agency tasked to manage and supervise technical education and skills development (TESD) in the Philippines. It was created by virtue of Republic Act 7796, otherwise known as the “Technical Education and Skills Development Act of 1994”. The said Act integrated the functions of the former National Manpower and Youth Council (NMYC), the Bureau of Technical-Vocational Education of the Department of Education, Culture and Sports (BTVE-DECS) and the Office of Apprenticeship of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE).
  8. 8. Mission TESDA provides direction, policies, programs and standards towards quality technical education and skill development. Vision TESDA is the leading partner in the development of the Filipino workforce with world-class competence and positive work values.

  20. 20.  Support to TVET Provision  In view to the need to provide equitable access and provision of TESD programs to the growing TVET clients, TESDA continues to undertake direct training provision. There are four training modalities - school-based, center-based, enterprise-based and community-based. These are being done with the TESDA's infrastructure in place - 57 administered schools, 60 training centres, enterprise-based training through DTS/Apprenticeship and community-based training in convergence with the LGUs.  School Based Program  This refers to the direct delivery or provision of TVET programs by the TESDA- administered schools. Totalling to 57, 19 are agricultural schools. 7 are fishery schools and 31 are trade schools. These school based programs include post-secondary offerings of varying duration not exceeding three years.
  21. 21.  Center Based Programs  These refer to training provisions being undertaken in the TESDA Regional (15) and Provincial (45) Training Centres totalling 60 in selected trade areas in the different regions and provinces in the country. Example  Korea-Philippines Training Centers  TESDA is the implementing agency of three grant assistance projects from the Government of the Republic of Korea. The Korea-Philippines Information Technology Training Center (KPITTC) at the Quezon City Polytechnic University compound in Novaliches hopes to become the premier information and communication technology training center in the Asia-Pacific region by producing competent IT practitioners to service the local and global manpower needs. KPITTC Quezon City will also provide training on computer graphics and animation.
  22. 22.  Community Based Programs  Community-based Training for Enterprise development Program is primarily addressed to the poor and marginal groups, those who cannot access, or are not accessible by formal training provisions. They have low skills, limited management abilities, and have few economic options. They have no access to capital – most of them are unqualified for formal credit programs. The program goes further than just mere skills training provision. It is purposively designed to catalyzed the creation of livelihood enterprises that shall be implemented by the trainees, immediately after the training. Likewise, it is designed to assist partner agencies such as LGUs, NGOs, people organizations and other agencies organizations with mission to help the poor get into productive undertakings to help themselves and their communities.
  23. 23.  Enterprise Based Programs  Enterprise-Based Programs are training program being implemented within companies/firms. These programs can be any of the following:  Apprenticeship Program is a training and employment program involving a contract between an apprentice and an employer on an approved apprenticeable occupation. Generally, it aims to provide a mechanism that will ensure availability of qualified skilled workers based on industry requirements. The period of apprenticeship covers a minimum of four months and a maximum of six months. Only companies with approved and registered apprenticeship programs under TESDA can be hire apprentices
  24. 24.  Objectives: To help meet the demand of the economy for trained manpower; To establish a national apprenticeship program through the participation of employers, workers and government and non-government agencies; and To establish apprenticeship standards for the protection of apprentices.  Learnership Program is a practical training on-the-job for approved learnable occupations, for a period not exceeding three months. Only companies with TESDA approved and registered learnership programs can hire learners.
  25. 25.  Dual Training System is an instructional mode of delivery for technology-based education and training in which learning takes place alternately in two venues: the school or training center and the company. One of the strategic approaches on this program is the conversion of selected industry practices/ programs registered under the apprenticeship program into DTS modality. Objectives: To strengthen manpower education and training in the Philippines by institutionalizing the DTS as an instructional delivery system of technical and vocational education and training (TVET).
  26. 26.  Target Beneficiaries: a. Trainees/ Students b. Companies c. Schools d. Training Centers e. Training Institutions f. IBs/Industry Associations g. LGUs h. NGOs i. GOs j. Parents k. Teachers l. Trainers
  27. 27.  Benefits of the Dual Training System: FOR STUDENTS:  Quality training and proper skills, work attitude and knowledge  Enhanced employability after training  Better chances for career mobility  Allowance for transportation and other expenses.  FOR COMPANIES:  Workers developed according to the company's needs  Guaranteed highly skilled and productive workers  Savings on production cost through tax incentives  FOR SCHOOLS:  Less need for sophisticated equipment and facilities  Responsiveness to industries' needs  Maximized use of equipment and facilities  Better employment opportunities for its graduates  Enhanced public image  Tax exemption for imported equipment
  28. 28.  Coverage of DTS: Participants in the dual training system include duly accredited:  Public and private educational institutions/training centers  Agricultural, industrial and business establishments  DTS Accreditation Procedures Schools or training centers and business establishments interested in adopting the dual training system must apply for accreditation with TESDA. Accreditation is necessary to ensure quality training and prevent abuses in program implementation.
  29. 29.  To qualify for accreditation, the school or training center must have the necessary facilities, equipment, qualified teachers, and training plan.
