LINGAYEN – Advocates of the technical- vocational education from the four provinces in Ilocos region gathered during the Cycle 2 of the One Technical Education and Skill Development (TESD) summit held on September 21 at the Sison Auditorium here.
Regional Director Cenon Querubin of the Technical Education and Skill Development Authority (TESDA)-Region 1 said the activity aimed to provide information to all technical-vocational stakeholders in order to develop skilled workers to be globally competitive.
Querubin said the summit is also line with the mandates of new leadership of TESDA that focuses on agri-fishery, tourism, development of skilled workers and social equity in relation to the technical-vocational education training (TVET).
He said in order to attain the goal for global competitiveness and social equity in relation to TVET, the agency is currently undertaking two-pronged TVET strategies which are the barangay skill survey and national technical audit to technical-vocational institutions.
“Nais ng aming bagong kalihim sa TESDA na si Secretary Guiling Mamondiong na lahat ng trainees ay magmumula sa liblib na barangay na dapat ang TVET ay maging available sa lahat kaya nagsasagawa kami ngayon ng survey sa lahat ng barangay,” he said.
He added, “The answers of the responders in the survey will determine the programs and trainings that will be prioritized and considered by TESDA.”
Likewise, he said that in order for the trainings provided by stakeholders to be relevant, responsive and realistic in the labor market, TESDA accredited institutions will undergo national technical audit.
Under the national technical audit, Querubin explained that tech-voc institution should be compliant to TESDA training regulations.
“Dapat sila ay may sapat na mga gamit at sapat na equipment para sa pag-undertake ng training,” he said adding that TESDA accredited institutions in Region 1 is now more than 230.
Meanwhile, Engr. Emmanuel Wong, provincial director of TESDA-Pangasinan, added that the second cycle of the One TESD Summit is the continuity of the first cycle held in Vigan City in 2013 for a better collaboration and participative engagement of both the public and private stakeholders to come up with a purposive event reform agenda in the next years.
“The successful focus group discussions in the four provinces in Region 1 have come up with skills requirements as inputs in the reform agenda,” said Wong.

During the summit, stakeholders underwent lectures on TVET reform and development agenda or two-pronged TVET strategy for poverty reduction, regional TVET situationer and program accomplishment, tourism industry challenges, human resource development road map and regional development thrusts and priorities.
