TESDA, FFCCCII forge link for skills mapping

The Technical Education and Skills Development Authority  and the Federation of Filipino Chinese Chambers of Commerce and Industry, Inc.  have forged partnership for skills mapping — a way to identify an individual’s strengths and weaknesses, and identifying the most needed skills in a place/area.

The partnership also aims to provide better technical education and more training programs, especially to the poor.

“We expect that this partnership will help boost the skills and industry exposure of our local labor force,” said TESDA Director General Guiling Mamondiong.

Mamondiong signed a memorandum of agreement together with FFCCCII president, Domingo Yap, in Binondo.

FFCCCII is a Chinese community that aims to strengthen the ties between Filipinos and Chinese people.

TESDA told the Philippine News Agency that FFCCCII has been a partner of TESDA for a long time.

With the agency’s new project with the FFCCCII, TESDA is hopeful that this will uplift the socio-economic status of the Filipino workforce by providing them with technical skills education.

The said partnership is also in line with the agency’s two-pronged strategy on poverty reduction, TESDA said. (PNA)
