Inputs needed for CAR tech-voc institute IRR

The Technical Education and Skills Development Authority-Cordillera gathered stakeholders for a consultation on the draft implementing rules and regulations of Republic Act 11192 or the Cordillera State Institute of Technical Education (CSITE) Act.

“Tesda cannot do it alone. We need your inputs as our major stakeholders and so we hope that you will continue to collaborate with us,” Tesda Acting Regional Director Manuel Wong said.

He said after the consultation more steps have to be taken like the approval of the IRR and implementation of the smallest requirements.

He said the operationalization of the CSITE will benefit the agency and other stakeholders who are also in the education and training sector.

It will mean not only a restructuring and reorganization of physical facilities and manpower complement of the affected institutions but more importantly truly producing the technicians and technologists that the economy needs.

“It is aimed at putting into place the standards that will equip the graduates with competencies that are recognized and accepted in other labor markets and to harmonize with partners in the public and private sectors the requirements of advancing economies, local and overseas,” he said.

Baguio Rep. Marquez Go, who is the sponsor of the House bill that led to RA 11192, said this is the first of its kind, creating a technical institute mandated to cater to the entire region. 

He said the outputs of the consultation are vital in developing the direction of technical education in the country.

“The President signed this into law on Jan. 18 in response to the rapid changing technologies and skills priorities, competencies in demand under the Philippine Standards and Occupations Classification, and under international labor requirements and standards,” he said.

He lauded the Tesda-CAR for its support in the realization of CSITE. “We believe that to secure a world-class workforce, one that is technically competent, innovative, and creative, the country’s technical vocational education system should be strengthened. We should also maximize the absorptive capacity and improve the institutional capability of the different tech-voc institutions,” Go said.

He said salient features of the law include additional programs, such as agriculture-related training, industry technology skills training, tourism and hospitality-related courses, livelihood skills development courses, basic business literacy, technical-vocational occupations, and trade skills.

There will also be other programs – computer literacy and information technology, seminars in personality development, and other preferred priority skills and trades.

Go said establishment of a research and technology hub, mobile training programs, and satellite or extension training centers throughout the region is also possible.

The consultation was attended by industry partners, Tesda committee members, national line agencies, local government units, and tech-voc institutions.

Go suggested that Tesda submit its proposed budget in October 2019 so it can be submitted to the House Appropriations Committee.
