TESDA conducts trainers training in Kalinga

by Gigi Dumallig

TABUK, Kalinga (9 October) -- Committed in producing more competent skilled workers in the province, the Technical Education Skills and Development Authority (TESDA) recently conducted a one-week trainers' methodology training.

Supervising TESD Specialist Angelo Daguio said that TESDA Kalinga is now introducing the competency-based delivery approach in the province in which students and trainees are given the option to choose the skill or module they want to take. This is unlike the previous scheme where they have to undergo a common program or set of courses along with other students, Daguio informed.

"Since it is modular, the new learning scheme designed is more flexible, giving chance for fast learners or students with advance learning to acquire more advance or new skills," he said.

After every module, the trainees will undergo a stage check where they will take written and actual tests, from which passers will receive a certificate according to the skills level they have acquired.

According to Daguio, the certificate is recognized nation-wide and even in the international level regardless if the skilled worker undertake the Technical Vocational Education Training (TVET) in a private or government owned institution.

This also aims to professionalize Technical and Skills Courses, since the Civil Service has already recognized said certification as eligibility through a memorandum. However, Daguio clarified that said eligibility is exclusively for the employment of a certain skill only as identified by the certificate, which he said is unlike the non-professional or professional eligibility that could be used for various employment purposes.

Having a TESDA certificate is advantageous for employment purposes considering that employers both here and abroad now prefer qualified skilled workers," Daguio said.

Meanwhile, participants to the training were also provided lectures on accreditation process and on delivery and conduct of competency-based assessment. Instructors, trainers and owners of the different training institutions in the province were invited to join the training to prepare as future lead assessors.

This he said is one of the requirements for training schools to qualify as TESDA accredited institutions as prescribed by the Philippine TVET Qualification Framework (PTQF) and the Philippine TVET and Certification System (PTCS). (PIA-Kalinga) [top]
