TESDA to close down bogus tech-voc schools

The Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) said it will soon start closing down “bogus” and “below standard” technical-vocational schools and institutions.

In a press release, TESDA Director General Joel Villanueva said these tech-voc schools better shape up and be on par with global benchmarks.

“Our goal is to produce quality, globally-competitive graduates; to make sure that our tech-voc graduates will be employed whether here or abroad after their trainings. We have to take action against these kinds of tech-voc schools and institutions and close them down,” he said.

He lamented that several tech-voc schools have below standard training modules, subsequently producing graduates not competitive enough to secure employment here or even abroad.
