SILLIMAN U GETS TESDA ACCREDITATION
THE SILLIMAN University Technical Educational Vocational Entrepreneurial Center was accredited by the Technical Education and Skills Authority as an assessment center for Animal Production (Poultry-Chicken) NC II, Animal Production (Swine) NCII, and Animal Production (Ruminants) NC II.
The accreditation makes SU TEVEC the only assessment center for animal production in Negros Oriental.
“A new assessment center accreditation will significantly improve the accessibility of all local and provincial stakeholders because it is the only existing assessment center in the province of Negros Oriental,” SU TEVEC head Blanchie Utzurrum said.
Office of Community Engagement and Service-Learning Officer-in-charge Novee Maestrecampo Jr. thanked TESDA for its continuous support to the university.
“The University, through OCESL and TEVEC, will continue to reach out to communities and deliver technical-vocational programs for skills development for work and life,” Maestrecampo said.
Formerly known as School of Agro-Industrial and Technical Education, SU TEVEC was established in September 2013 to provide specialized training to high school graduates who may not be able to enroll in a formal four-year degree program.
It also seeks to develop their skills and enhance their preparedness for employment and livelihood opportunities.
