The new TESDA Director General Danilo P. Cruz visited the Center on November 24, 2022 at around 1:00 PM during his Davao Region site visit. The 13th TESDA Director General who is an attorney in profession, was accompanied by Deputy Director General for TESD Operations, Aniceto D. Bertiz, III and the DG’s Executive Assistant.
Before the key officials of TESDA Davao Region and RTC-KorPhil personnel, DG Cruz in his speech, emphasized guidelines on how to run TESDA in his term which is in line with the dream of the President – a better life for the Filipino people; He said that TESDAns should bear in mind that provision of Technical and Vocational education is not all about enhancing the skills of our people, but it is about improving the economic and social standing of the Filipino workforce…our training programs should not only serve as bridges of the Filipino workforce for jobs openings but more importantly our programs will serve as wheels that enable our constituents to navigate the multiple and varying needs of the economy. Our programs should not end up only to the everchanging and evolving demands of the industries, but should produce workers with multiples skills and competencies who can easily shift from one occupation to another, from one industry to another, and from one work environment to another. Because according to DG Cruz who was a former DOLE undersecretary, this is the only way that we can truly lift up our Filipino workers from the pit of poverty.
After the plenary, DG Cruz and DDG Bertiz inspected the ongoing construction of the Innovation Center for the RTC-KorPhil Davao.
