Technical-Vocational Graduates Have Better Job Prospects – TESDA
Graduates of technical and vocational courses can get employed without any effort, the government said yesterday.
Joel Villanueva, Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) director general, said tech-voc graduates, particularly those the agency has certified, have better chances of getting hired.
Many industries are already on the lookout and offering employment to graduates with special technical vocational skills, he added.
Villanueva said four industries expected to provide the most number of employment this year are the creative industries, strategic farming and fishing, power and utilities, and renewable energy.
TESDA fully supports the growth of animation in the country’s booming IT industry, he added.
Villanueva said TESDA graduates were molded and trained for various courses and specializations.
They are now ready to give quality and world-class service in all parts of the globe, he added.
TESDA offers ladderized courses like B.S. Hospitality Management embedding the following qualifications: Commercial Cooking NC II, Bartending NC II, FBS NC II, and Housekeeping NC II; and the B.S. Information Technology that embeds Programming NC IV.
Other courses offered are Computer Hardware Servicing NC II, HealthCare Services NC II, and Seafaring-Catering/ Stewarding NC II.
The ladderized education allows learners to progress between technical vocational education and training (TVET) and college, and vice-versa.
