If you have ever wanted to learn a new, marketable skill effectively in a short amount of time, at not much cost, the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) is the place to go here in the Philippines. Since education is one of the best ways to begin to alleviate poverty and improve the loves of our people, they need all the help they can get.
Intel, the world leader in computing innovation, has teamed up with TESDA, launched the Easy Steps program at the recently concluded First Technical Education and Skills Development Congress in Pasay City. This partnership aims to realize both groups’ common vision to make technical education and skills development courses more available and accessible to our countrymen here and overseas.
The end goal of the program is to develop the skills pool of the Filipino worker by increasing their ICT competencies. “We have seen the rate of development in other Asia Pacific countries through the use of different forms of technology. We are raising thebar here in the Philippines with the Intel Easy Steps Program. With the extensive learning materials and approach provided by the program, we can expand our reach to a lot more Filipinos and empower them with ICT skills,” Said Secretary Joel Villanueva, Director General of TESDA.
The Easy Steps modules are designed to help users understand basic computer and web-based applications while teaching them how to utilize the skills they learn in real-life situations, including employment and entrepreneurship.
