|TESDA 1 HITS 2012 TARGETS|
The Ilocos-Pangasinan Region of TESDA once again performed beyond par in the delivery of techni cal education and skills development as it exceeded its targets in 2012.

|TSTP revs up self-employment opportunities|
The TESDA Specialista Tech-nopreneurship Program (TSTP) pro¬vided 400 self-employment opportu¬nities to certified technical vocational graduates in the Ilocos - Pangasinan re¬gion in 2012.
Taking off from a strong finish, we consider 2012 as a solid year of TESD performance. However, we cannot be complacent if we con¬tinue to aspire for organizational excellence. We ask ourselves on how we can build on our heritage and assets to further move TESD forward in the north. What must we do and what else do we need to shape TESDA Region I into a more vibrant and responsive to the technical needs of the labor markets.

Figures have shown that the agency not only achieved but also surpassed its target for the year. All the hard work and sacrifice had paid off and proved that 2011 is a good year for the agency.
|Notes from the Regional Director-
Time and again, this question has been asked: After training, what? It is a very valid question that needs a straightforward answer. And who are asking these questions aside from TESDA? They are the numerous stakeholders in technical education and skills development: trainees, parents, manpower planners, non-government organizations, industries, legislators and the public in general. Generally, they will see training as an investment.
