Senator: Tesda ‘misaligned’ programs

Senator Sherwin Gatchalian —Senate PRIB

Sen. Sherwin Gatchalian on Saturday called out the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (Tesda) for supposedly pushing training programs that do not align with today’s most in-demand jobs.

In a statement, Gatchalian lamented that Tesda’s programs with the highest enrollment do not align with the most in-demand jobs until 2025,” he said.


“None of the top five most popular courses offered by Tesda are aligned with industries that will grow in the next three to five years.

Again, we see a lot of jobs-skills mismatch even at the tech-voc (technical-vocational) level and this is one aspect that we’re also addressing at the Second Congressional Commission on Education,” he said. —Melvin Gascon
