TESDA to hold automation impact survey among IT-BPM, construction sectors

The Technological Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) is planning to conduct a workplace skills survey to determine the potential impact of automation on job training requirements. Rosanna A. Urdaneta, TESDA director general for policies and planning, said the survey will be launched next month and will focus on the information technology and business process management (IT-BPM) sector and the construction sector. Urdaneta said the two sectors are believed to be the most affected by the growing adoption of artificial or augmented intelligence in the workplace.

The survey results are expected to be released next year.
