The Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) is set to hold a nationwide registration for trainors and assessors in order to step up the agency's Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET).
TESDA Director General, Secretary Guiling “Gene” Mamondiong said that the nationwide registration for trainors and assessors is scheduled from June 7-15 this year.
“In view of improving the human infrastructure of both training and assessment with the end of expanding the absorptive capacity of training providers, a Nationwide Registration of Trainors and Assessors shall be launched on June 7, 2017 and shall run until June 15, 2017,” Mamondiong said in a memorandum.
Mamondiong also ordered regional/provincial/district directors of TESDA to organize activities that would drum up the nationwide registration for trainors/assessors.
Starting July 3, TESDA will provide TM1 (Trainers Methodology Level 1) and National Certificate (NC) to the new trainors/assessors while “industry immersion and skills upgrading” will be given to senior trainors/assessors.
“A detailed Implementing Guidelines regarding this shall be provided to operationalize the registration which in turn will be the basis for the awarding of TM1 and other scholarship assistance to trainors/assessors," Mamondiong added.
The TESDA chief said that he expects another competent new breed of trainors and assessors to be hired by the agency during the nationwide registration.
