TESDA to work closely with DoLE

The Technical Education and Skills Development Authority yesterday expressed its full support to the recent decision to integrate the agency anew into the Department of Labor and Employment.
This as TESDA hails the confirmation of Labor Secretary Bienvenido Laguesma by the Commission on Appointments.

“On behalf of TESDA, we support the confirmation of the ad interim appointment of Atty. Bienvenido Laguesma as Secretary of the Department of Labor and Employment,” TESDA Director General Danilo P. Cruz said.

The ad interim appointment of Secretary Laguesma as DOLE Chief was confirmed by CA last 20 September 2022.

DG Cruz said that with TESDA reverting back to DOLE and confirmation of Secretary Laguesma as Labor Secretary, Filipinos can expect improved programs and services from both agencies.

“We will be working closely and frequently with the good Secretary in advancing the labor and technical vocational education and training sectors of the country and address perennial problems such as skills-job mismatch,” the TESDA chief said.

It may be recalled that President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos, Jr. issued Executive Order 5 transferring TESDA to DoLE as its attached agency from the Department of Trade and Industry.
