The program explored the phenomenon of institutional development and recognised the necessary capabilities of TVET institution to survive in the changing environment.
Main takeaways from the program were the understanding on accreditation model of the TESDA and quality assurance of the TVET, first-hand experience on Industry Institution Linkage (IIL) through theoretical classes as well as industry visits, devising an action plan on system development planning based on the SWOT/GAP analysis, importance of research in TVET and developing TRACER study instruments, including understanding the Industry Revolution 4.0 (IR 4.0) and how the TVET system should response, and learning the framework on greening the TVET sector.
