MANILA The Technical Education and Skills Development Authority's (TESDA) radio program, "TESDA Abot Lahat", started airing on Wednesday, July 10.
This will be aired weekly, from 1:30 p.m. to 2 p.m. over 702 DZAS-FEBC Radio. It can also be viewed online via febc.ph, Facebook Live and through the FEBC PH STREAM app.
Host Joy Songsong told the Philippine News Agency (PNA) the program is basically the "Tech-Voc Track ay Swak!" she has been hosting since April 2018, but now carries a new title.
TESDA launched a radio program last year, in a bid to better inform the public about the agency's programs and activities.
"Through this weekly program, we hope to let the public know that TESDA has various programs to reach out to its special clients, as well as the target beneficiaries of tech-voc (technical vocational) training and skills development," she said.
Songsong said TESDA Secretary Isidro Lapena would often instruct to help provide livelihood or jobs after the conduct of their trainings.
That is the essence of TESDA's mandate', and we want everyone to know this and the good prospects of developing a career in TVET (tech-voc education and training) through TESDA," said Songsongm who is also a chief TESD specialist at TESDA's Partnerships and Linkages Office.
Meanwhile, for the program's pilot episode, Songsong discussed about the rationale for the change in radio program's title, and the "911 TESDA" app that will be launched this month.
The app would function like Grab and Uber, but instead of rides, one would ask services from TESDA graduates. This will be initially available in NCR, and TESDA plans to have this rolled out nationwide. (PNA)
