Study shows TESDA training not enough to ensure BPO jobs

TESDA training

A recent study showed that the technical-vocational education and training (TVET) offered by the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (Tesda) are not enough to ensure that those who undergo the training will get BPO jobs. The study, conducted by the Asian Institute of Management Rizalino S. Navarro Policy Center for Competitiveness (AIM RSN PCC), showed that those who underwent the training will not be able to benefit from the fast-growing BPO sector because they lack English proficiency and other competencies. The authors of the study said this should change and Tesda should ensure that they consult with industry players to ensure that training is up-to-date and relevant to their work requirements.
