EMPLOYMENT TRENDS Absorption of skills is seen more in the deployment of OFWs in the Industry sector rather than local Industry employment...
Deployment of Overseas Workers for Electricals and Electronics occupations (Wiremen, Riggers, Assemblers, Fitters, Lineman, etc.) significantly increased in 2006....
EMPLOYMENT in INDUSTRY Trends in recruitment and hiring among big firms show that they “generally hire trainable applicants and train them on the job rather than hire certified graduates of TVET courses” e.g. agri-business firms, BPOs, firms in Ecozones, etc.
EMPLOYMENT in INDUSTRY Feedback from big Industry and Chambers (during Regional consultations) says that while there is willingness to absorb TVET graduates for employment, most of TVET graduates do not meet competency and acceptability requirements of employers…. …. and even if they are willing to absorb TVET graduates, their absorption capability is limited.
EMPLOYMENT IN AGRICULTURE 50% of agricultural workers are own account workers, 25% are wage and salary workers and 25% are unpaid family workers…

More high school graduates prefer higher education courses (college) over TVET courses.. JOB-SKILLS MISMATCH
TVET IN BASIC EDUCATION Integrating tech-voc in the Basic Secondary Curriculum is viewed by DepEd as priority and an alternative solution to increasing dropout rates, addressing issues on the present job-skills mismatch and reduction of poverty; Source: DepEd
TVET IN BASIC EDUCATION
