In line with the celebration of Labor Day, The Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA), together with its partner industries conducted several skills demonstrations in emerging technologies.

President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos, Jr., the guest of honor for the celebrations at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City last April 30, personally witnessed TESDA’s demonstrations involving cutting edge technology in Mechatronics/Robotics and Visual Graphic Design.

There were also extended reality (XR) simulators for Welding and Fabrication, as well as exhibits for solar-powered chest-type freezers and 4th Industrial Revolution technology in Agriculture.

There were also displays using modern equipment in more traditional qualifications as Bartending, Cookery and Barista. 

According to Director General Danilo P. Cruz, TESDA is continuously partnering with local and international stakeholders to ensure that its programs are responsive to the needs of the industries.

“As we continue to address the challenges brought by the Fourth Industrial Revolution, there is a need to tap the private sector to ensure that we deliver relevant and quality tech-voc training to Filipinos,” DG Cruz said.

Meanwhile, TESDA – National Capital Region (NCR) conducted a ceremonial distribution of toolkits to select Special Training for Employment Program (STEP) scholars which the President himself awarded, assisted by the Labor Secretary Bienvendo Laguesma and DG Cruz.

Likewise, TESDA was among the government agencies who signed the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) to support and further strengthen the labor force through livelihood programs, job creations and skills training, among others.

Included in these agreements is the DOLE-TESDA Training Production Convergence Program under the Pambansang Pabahay Para sa Pilipino Housing (4PH) Program of the Department of Human Settlements and Urban Development (DSHUD).

The Labor Day was observed with the theme “Pabahay, Bilihing Abot-Presyo, Benepisyo ng Matatag na Trabaho Para sa Manggagawang Pilipino.”
