THE TECHNICAL Education and Skills Development Authority and its partner industries conducted several skills demonstrations in emerging technologies.

President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. personally witnessed TESDA’s demonstrations involving cutting edge technology in Mechatronics/Robotics and Visual Graphic Design.

There were also extended reality simulators for welding and fabrication, as well as exhibits for solar-powered chest-type freezers and 4th industrial revolution technology in agriculture.

TESDA Director General Danilo Cruz said the agency continues to partner with local and international stakeholders to ensure that its programs are responsive to the needs of the industries.

“As we continue to address the challenges brought by the Fourth Industrial Revolution, there is a need to tap the private sector to ensure that we deliver relevant and quality tech-voc training to Filipinos,” Cruz said.

TESDA was among the government agencies that signed the memorandum of agreement to support and further strengthen the labor force through livelihood programs, job creations and skills training.

Included in these agreements is the DOLE-TESDA Training Production Convergence Program under the Pambansang Pabahay Para sa Pilipino Housing Program of the Department of Human Settlements and Urban Development.
