TESDA to expand Dual Training System implementation

 

The Technical Education and Skills Development Program (TESDA) is set to expand the implementation of the Dual Training System and Dualized Training Program (DTS/DTP) for technical vocational education training (TVET) in the country.

This will be among the topics to be discussed at the “Industry Forum on DTS Implementation” which will be held at the Hotel Jen in Pasay City on Oct. 24, 2018, during the celebration of the DTS Week.  The theme for this year’s celebration is “DTS Talaga ang Swak.”

The DTS Week is an annual celebration led by TESDA which honors the contributions of public and private technical vocational institutions (TVIs) and their industry partners in the implementation of DTS as an effective way to shape the country’s workforce.

“The forum aims to create ways to encourage industries and discuss initiatives on how to expand the participation of stakeholders in the implementation of DTS in the county,” according to TESDA Deputy Director General for Partnerships and Linkages Rebecca J. Calzado.

“It also aims to strengthen the cooperation of stakeholders in the implementation of the DTS as the training delivery mode in molding future Filipino workers, and to further promote widespread DTS implementation,” added Calzado.

The forum is held in response to the published policy paper of the World Bank (WB) entitled “Who Benefits from Dual Training Systems Evidence from the Philippines” in which it was mentioned by Takiko Igarashi, WB Education Specialist, author of the article, and Dr. Pablo Ariel Acosta, Ph.D, WB Senior Economist, that the DTS delivery system can provide opportunities for the Filipino youth, especially those who are having difficulties in the academic subjects of basic education.

Based on the study, the DTS due to its practical training aspect, may be able to solve youth unemployment and skills gap problems in the Philippines particularly for those who have finished vocational training or high school education.

Among those invited as speakers to the forum are Dr. Pablo Ariel Acosta and Dr. Alberto Fenix, Jr. from the Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI).

The DTS is based on a German model wherein training is conducted in two venues, namely the school and its partner company or companies.

Under the DTS, the school and company will collaborate in designing the curriculum and other plans to respond to the needs of the firm. At least 40 percent of the training will done in-school and 60 percent will be provided by the company via in-plant training.

Republic Act 7686 (Dual Training System Act of 1994) was signed into law on February 25, 1994 by former President Fidel V. Ramos to enforce the Dual Training System as an instructional delivery system for TVET trainees.

In order to expand and strengthen enterprise-based training programs, TESDA issued the  guidelines in the implementation of the Dual Training System and Dualized Training Programs in Oct. 18, 2012.

At present, there are 110 TVIs implementing DTS/DTP nationwide. Region lll has the highest number with 56; Region lV-A, 21; and Region 9, 9.

There are 876 DTS/DTP industry partners nationwide with the most number being in Region lll with 186; Region X, 160; National Capital Region (NCR), 147 and Region ll, 132 industry partners.

The five areas with the highest number of companies that implement DTS/DTP are Tourism, 316; Electrical and Electronics, 233; Metals and Engineering, 89; Automotive and Land Transportation, 68; Agriculture, Forestry and Fishery, 40.

Since 2013 up to January-September 2018, there were 88,947 enrollees and 72,607 graduates under DTS/DTP.

The National Recognition for Exemplary Implementation of Dual Training System (DTS) will also be launched during the forum.

In the program, presentations will be given by the Punlaan School in San Juan City a pioneer in implementing DTS for the hotel and restaurant industry since in 1993,  as well as by the St. Peregrine Institute of Cavite.  A presentation will likewise be given by the Dualtech Training Center in Laguna, a DTS pioneer as well in technical training that started in 1982 with their Electromechanics course.

Also expected to grace the event are representatives from TVIs, industry and DTS focal persons from Region lll, lV-A and NCR (DTS and non-DTS implementers), related agencies of the government, and other stakeholders.

Dual Training System palalawakin ng TESDA

 

Palalawakin at pasisiglahin ng Technical Education and Skills Development Program (TESDA) ang implementasyon ng Dual Training Systems and Dualized Training Programs (DTS/DTP) para sa technical-vocational education training (TVET) sa bansa.

Ang programa ay kasama sa mga tatalakayin sa idaraos na “Industry Forum on DTS Implementation” kasabay sa pagdiriwang ng DTS Week ng ahensya na gaganapin sa Hotel Jen sa Pasay City sa darating na Oktubre 24, 2018. Ito ay may temang “DTS Talaga ang Swak”.

Ang DTS Week ay taunang ipinagdiriwang ng TESDA upang bigyan ng pagkilala ang mahalagang kontribusyon ng mga public at private technical vocational institutions (TVIs) at mga katuwang na industriya sa pagpapatupad ng DTS na epektibong sistema sa paghubog ng mga manggagawang Filipino.

“Layunin ng pulong na bumuo ng mga pamamaraan upang hikayatin ang paglahok ng mga industriya, at talakayin ang mga inisyatibo na maaring magpalawak sa pagtugon ng mga stakeholders sa implementasyon ng DTS,” ayon kay TESDA Deputy Director General for Partnerships and Linkages Rebecca J. Calzado.

“Layunin din nito ang palakasin ang kooperasyon ng mga stakeholders sa pagpapatupad ng DTS bilang ‘training delivery mode’ sa paghubog ng mga susunod na manggagawang Filipino at paghimok para sa malawakang partisipasyon ng mga industriya sa pagpapatupad nito,” dagdag ni Calzado.

Pagtugon ito ng ahensya sa nalathalang policy paper ng World Bank (WB) na may titulong “Who Benefits from Dual Training Systems Evidence from the Philippines” na kung saan binanggit nina Takiko Igarashi, WB Education Specialist, author ng artikulo at Dr. Pablo Ariel Acosta, Ph.D, WB Senior Economist, na ang DTS delivery system ay magbubukas ng maraming pagkakataon para sa mga kabataang Filipino, partikular sa mga nahirapan sa kanilang academic subject sa basic education.

Ayon pa sa nasabing pag-aaral, ang praktikal na pagsasanay na naibibigay ng DTS ay pangunahing tugon upang bawasan ang youth unemployment sa Pilipinas, partikular sa mga nag-graduate sa vocational training o high school at lulutas sa skills gap problem.

Kasama sa mga inanyayahan ay mga tagapagsalita mula sa Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI).

Ang DTS ay hango sa sistema ng Germany kung saan ang pag-aaral ay ginagawa sa dalawang lugar, sa eskuwelahan at sa kompanya.

Sa ilalim ng DTS, ang eskuwelahan at kompanya ay magkakatuwang sa paghubog sa kasanayan ng isang trainee at sa paggawa ng curriculum at plans na aangkop sa pangangailanan ng kompanya. 40% ang itinuturo sa eskuwelahan o in-school training at 60% sa kompanya o in-plant training.

Ang Republic Act 7686 (Dual Training System Act of 1994) ay nilagdaan bilang batas noong Pebrero 25, 1994 ni Pangulong Fidel V. Ramos para sa pagpapatupad ng Dual Training System bilang instructional delivery system para sa mga TVET trainees.

Upang higit na mapalawak at mapalakas ang enterprise-based training programs, nagpalabas ang TESDA ng implementing guidelines sa pagpapatupad ng Dual Training Systems at Dual Training Programs noong Oktubre 18, 2012.

Sa kasalukuyan, mayroong 110 TVIs na nagpapatupad ng DTS/DTP sa buong bansa kung saan ang may pinakamataas na bilang ay nasa Region lll, 56; Region lV-A, 21; at Region IX, 9.
