TESDA renews partnership with Accenture

The partnership between Technical Education and Skills Development Authority and Accenture Philippines has been renewed to continue implementing their joint project “Skills to Succeed Academy”.

The new agreement according to TESDA Director General Danilo P. Cruz will usher in more and better opportunities for Filipino workers to improve their skills and push for their competitive edge in the global market.

“This MoA signing comes at a very opportune time as TESDA incorporates more and more 21st century skills into its training regulations and competency standards,” he said.

“We acknowledge Accenture Philippines for investing in the TVET sector and tapping the services of TESDA.  Together, we shall continue providing our kababayans with job opportunities and improving the productivity and quality of our industries,” he added.

The new Memorandum of Agreement was signed by TESDA Director General Cruz and Accenture in the Philippines’s Executive Sponsor for Corporate Citizenship Rudy Guiao, Jr., at the TESDA Board Room in TESDA Central Office, Taguig City.

“The S2S Academy courses will further strengthen TESDA’s initiatives towards the delivery of area-based and demand-driven technical vocational education and training,” TESDA Deputy Director General for Policies and Planning Rosanna A. Urdaneta, said.

“Further, these courses are invaluable in preparing our workers and entrepreneurs to adapt to the challenges of the Fourth Industrial Revolution,” added Urdaneta.

Launched in 2018, the S2S Academy is a free, web-based application that offers a highly interactive and online training program. This helps disadvantaged young people build skills and confidence to make career choices and develop the key employability skills they need to find and sustain employment.
