Technical Education and Skills Development Authority
(TESDA)

UNEVOC Centre (National Body) since 2005

The Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) is the government agency tasked to manage and supervise technical education and skills development (TESD) in the Philippines. It was created by virtue of Republic Act 7796, otherwise known as the “Technical Education and Skills Development Act of 1994”. The said Act integrated the functions of the former National Manpower and Youth Council (NMYC), the Bureau of Technical-Vocational Education of the Department of Education, Culture and Sports (BTVE-DECS) and the Office of Apprenticeship of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE).


Mission

TESDA sets direction, promulgates relevant standards, and implements programs geared towards a quality-assured and inclusive technical education and skills development and certification system.


Objectives

Section 2 of RA 7796 states that it is TESDA’s mandate to provide relevant, efficient, accessible, and high quality technical education and skills development in support of the development of globally-competitive Filipino middle-level workforce responsive to and in accordance with Philippine development goals and priorities.


Regular tasks

TESDA’s core business basically consists of three mutually-reinforcing elements. These are direction setting, standards setting and systems development and support to TVET provision. Underpinning these three elements is institutional capacity building.
