THE TECHNICAL Education and Skills Development Authority continues to provide quality and relevant technical vocational education and training to Filipinos to improve their employability.

TESDA Director General Danilo Cruz said the agency is ready to implement more training programs to sustain access to employment and improve workers’ productivity.

“We commit to continue to provide support to those who will be in need of upskilling and reskilling. Rest assured that TESDA will be here to ensure that the country’s workforce is responsive to different challenges, especially the Fourth Industrial Revolution,” Cruz said.

TESDA, he added, will continue to implement its central strategy of area-based and demand-driven TVET to be more responsive to the critical skills needs of industries and employers, and to produce rightfully skilled workers in specific areas or localities.

It will also continue to forge partnerships with public and private stakeholders to further enhance the Philippine TVET system. In 2022, TESDA partnered with over 600 local and international stakeholders.

On Labor Day, TESDA set up information help desks to address queries of clients regarding TVET scholarships and TVET program registration and accreditation.
