The Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) on Monday announced that the public may now download the TESDA app via Google Play and Apple.
TESDA said the application was in partnership with mobile app developer, Bizooku Philippines Inc.
According to TESDA, the app contains things that one could also find in the TESDA website.
The difference, it said, is that TESDA is taking advantage of the youth’s huge presence online.
“As more and more people rely on their mobile phones for communication and information, the more this TESDA app becomes very timely and relevant. We also want to connect closer to our younger clients, the youth, who are usually online,” said TESDA Secretary Isidro Lapena in a statement.
The app, he said, would be TESDA’s means to bridge information and services to more people.
The TESDA app contains a list of training programs that the agency offers; addresses of registered training centers; regional and provincial offices directory; frequently asked questions; and news about TESDA programs.
The app also contains e-learning video clips and different links, as well as the steps on how to apply for TESDA scholarships. (PNA)
