PIA Press Release

TESDA hones trainers’ competence and qualification

by Maritess B. Beñas

PIDIGAN, Abra (16 October) -- Competence and qualification are the foremost target of the Technical Education Skills Development Authority (TESDA) for its trainers who are now undergoing the week-long compressed trainers’ training dubbed as T-Plus.

The training started last October 9 at the Abra Skills Development Center (ASDC) here. The trainers came from TESDA-CAR and the Provincial Training Center while the 23 participants are from the Abra State Institute of Sciences and Technology, DATA Center Philippines, Philippine National Red Cross, the Pinacle Health & Vocational Institute, the Provincial Training Center, and the province of Apayao.

In an interview with TESDA-Abra Provincial Director, Cenon Querobin, he explained the rationale of the on-going Trainers Methodology 1 which is the observance of the framework of competency classification and recognition for middle level skilled workers.

The said framework is guided by the principles of the Philippine TVET Qualification Framework (PTQF) which is a quality-assured structure used as a platform for giving recognition to the attainment of knowledge, skills, attitudes and values along the middle-level skilled occupations. This is geared towards a single, nationally recognized qualification.

During the training, the participants undergo a rigid Competency Assessment of the program they teach and a Competency Assessment as Trainers for Qualification levels. There are four qualification levels in their competency assessment as trainers – Trainer 1, 2, 3 and 4 with the T-4 as the highest level classified as the Master Trainer.

Competency is defined as the trainer’s capacity in terms of his possession and application of the knowledge, skills and attitudes to perform work activities to the standard expected in the workplace.

Qualification, on the other hand, refers to the recognition of achievement of a group of units of competency that meet industry requirements for useful work and the PTQF descriptor for National Certificate which designates the level, the process, the responsibility and the application of their competency levels.

With the T-Plus Trainers’ Methodology 1, the participants are taught how to deliver their skills so that with their qualification and competence, they become full-pledged TVET Trainers who are nationally recognized. (PIA-Abra) [top]
