Dual Training System Impact Evaluation (IE) for the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA)
|Description of Project||
It is the mandate of the TESDA to manage and supervise technical education and skills development in the country. TESDA provides direction, policies, programs and standards towards quality technical education and skill development and is the leading partner in the development of Filipino workforce with world-class competence and positive work values. Cognizant to this mandate, a number of interrelated programs and activities has been undertaken, and one of which is the implementation of Technical and Vocational Education Training (TVET) programs to growing TVET clients in various training modalities.
Of particular significance is the Dual Training System (DTS) under TESDA’s enterprise-based program wherein instructional mode of technology delivery and training take place at the school/training center and at the workplace. One of the strategic approaches on this program is the conversion of selected industry practices/ programs registered under the apprenticeship program into DTS modality.
Accordingly, the DTS’ beneficiaries are students, companies, training institutions, industry associations, LGUs, NGOs, parents and teachers. Aside from quality training and employability after training, the advantages of the DTS are the development of workers according to the company’s requisites; participating companies save on production cost through tax incentives; and it also benefit schools since the program is responsive to industries’ needs and it will provide better employment opportunities for their graduates.
The impact evaluation seeks to assess the impact of DTS on skill formation and labor market outcomes by conducting a tracking survey to interview former trainees from both the DTS and regular programs, through a close collaboration with researchers in the Korean Development Institute School of Public Policy and Management (KDI).
And in order to meet the mentioned study objectives, data collected focused on:
