CPSC’s Director General, Dr. Ramhari Lamichhane, joined the 4-part TVET Policy eFora Web Conference Series which aims to converse on the current challenges in Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) and industry sectors.

With the theme themed “Survive, Revive, and Thrive: Transforming TVET towards the New Normal and Digital Future”, the e-Fora was part of the activities for TESDA’s 26th Anniversary celebration themed, “TESDA @ 26: Bringing Hope in Time of Crisis” and is organized by the TESDA Planning Office in partnership with the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the Philippine Business for Education (PBEd).

Addressing the various concerns brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as the fast developments in technology and work environment, the series will present current TVET situationers, local and international TVET-related initiatives, and strategies for employment and productivity in the public and private sector.

The e-Fora also served as a venue for discussion and knowledge-sharing on TVET frameworks and policies that should be prioritized, realigned, or created to enable workers and businesses to recover and bounce back.

Distinguished experts from the academe, national government agencies (NGAs), and various industries comprised the panel that provided their insights to the presentations and forum topics. The main eForum was also attended by TVET experts from the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), other international organizations, and all industry sectors in the Philippines.
