TESDA, YouthWorks PH link to train jobless youth

The Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) and the Philippine Business for Education (PBEd) have joined forces for YouthWorks PH, a workforce development project, to provide skills training to youth not in education, employment or training (NEET).

The Philippine Business for Education (PBEd), which implements the five-year, P1.7-billion project in partnership with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), signed a memorandum of understanding last September 3 with TESDA to develop work-based training programs for youth NEET.

The agreement, signed by TESDA Secretary/Director General Guiling “Gene” A. Mamondiong and PBEd Executive Director Love Basillote, also covers the updating and improvement of relevant curricula and Training Regulations, and the formulation of industry immersion programs for trainers, among others.

“With this MOU, TESDA and PBEd will work hand-in-hand to update competency standards, curricula, and training regulations and create new ones.  PBEd will also help in providing industry technical experts in the process and assist in the industry immersion of TVET trainers,” said Sec. Mamondiong.

YouthWorks PH mobilizes the private sector to work with TVET institutions to develop training programs for youth NEET so they can get gainful employment afterwards.

“TESDA must ensure, more than ever before, to strengthen its ties with the industry so that that no one gets left behind in the fast-paced workplace,” added Mamondiong.

Under the partnership, YouthWorks PH and TESDA will be collaborating in formulating innovative models for work-based training in the fields of construction, hospitality and tourism, agriculture, manufacturing, energy, and banking and finance.

“This partnership with TESDA brings us one step closer in co-developing solutions that align education and training to national competitive needs to enable people to get the right jobs,” explains Basillote.

YouthWorks PH targets to enhance the skills of some 40,000 youth NEET in the National Capital Region, Iloilo, Cebu, Cagayan de Oro, Davao, Zamboanga and General Santos over the next five years. It will focus on six growth areas that have also been identified by the Department of Labor and Employment as key employment generators and/or emerging industries in their respective regions: agriculture, banking and finance, construction, hospitality and tourism, energy and manufacturing.

PBED is a non-profit organization founded in 2006 by top CEOs in the country as the business community’s response to the need for greater education and economy alignment.

The USAID administers the U.S. foreign assistance programs providing economic and humanitarian assistance in more than 80 countries worldwide.

TESDA, YouthWorks PH magtutulungan sa pagsasanay sa mga kabataang walang trabaho

Magtutulungan ang Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) at Philippine Business for Education (PBEd) sa pagpapatupad ng workforce development project YouthWorks PH para sa pagkakaloob ng skills training sa mga kabataan na hindi nag-aaral, walang trabaho o tinatawag na “not in education, employment or training” (NEET).

Ang kasunduan ay nilagdaan nina TESDA Director General/Secretary Guiling ‘Gene’ A. Mamondiong at PBED Executive Director Lovelaine B. Basillote na naglalayon din na magtulungan sa pagbabago o pagpapaunlad sa mga napapanahong curriculum at Training Regulationis, at pagbuo ng industry immersion programs para sa mga trainers at iba pa.

“With this MOU, TESDA and PBEd will work hand-in-hand to update competency standards, curricula, and training regulations and create new ones.  PBEd will also help in providing industry technical experts in the process and assist in the industry immersion of TVET trainers,” sabi ni Sec. Mamondiong.

Pinakikilos ng YouthWorks PH ang mga pribadong sector para makipagkaisa sa mga technical vocational education and training (TVET) institutions upang gumawa ng mga training programs para sa mga kabataang NEET upang makakuha sila ng magandang trabaho pagkatapos.

“TESDA must ensure, more than ever before, to strengthen its ties with the industry so that that no one gets left behind in the fast-paced workplace,” dagdag ni Mamondiong.

Sa ilalim ng partnership, ang YouthWorks PH at TESDA ay magkakaisa sa pagbuo ng mga innovative models para sa work-based training sa larangan ng konstruksiyon, hospitality and tourism, agrikultura, manufacturing, enerhiya at banking and finance.

“This partnership with TESDA brings us one step closer in co-developing solutions that align education and training to national competitive needs to enable people to get the right jobs,” paliwanag ni Basillote.

Target ng YouthWorks PH na pahusayin ang kasanayan ng may 40,000 kabataang NEET sa National Capital Region (NCR), Iloilo, Cebu, Cagayan de Oro, Davao, Zamboanga at General Santos sa loob ng susunod na limang taon. Tututok ito sa anim na growth areas na kinilala din ng Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) bilang “key employment generators at emerging industries” sa kani-kanilang regions: gaya ng agrikultura, banking and finance, konstruksiyon, hospitality and tourism, energy at manufacturing.

Ang PBEd ay isang non-profit, non-stock organization na itinatatag noong 2006 ng mga matataas na CEO sa Pilipinas bilang tugon sa panawagan upang pangalagaan ang napagkasunduan at panatilihin ang aksyon hinggil sa education policy reform.
