The Technical Vocational Livelihood or TVL Track is one of the tracks offered under Senior High School programs in the Philippines. It is designed to provide students with job-ready skills that they will need in the future.

What is the TVL track?

But what is TVL all about? What is the difference of the tech-voc track from all the other tracks?  And what can you get from it?

What are the strands under the TVL Track?

Technical-Vocational-Livelihood track deals primarily with technical-vocational skills or tech-voc. These skills are requirements for the Certificate of Competency (COC) and National Certifications (NC) that you will need especially if you are looking for a career in electronics, agriculture, or trading. The TVL track has four strands:

Agri-Fishery Arts Strand

This strand equips students with the theoretical and hands-on application of skills related to agriculture and fisheries. Under Agri-fishery Arts, you will learn various topics that you can use in livestock such as Animal Production, Crop Production, Landscaping, Food Processing, and Fisheries.

Home Economics

TVL also trains students with livelihood skills they can use for employment or in starting their own businesses. Whether your plan is to be a fashion designer, chef, or be an entrepreneur, Home Economics strand will teach you the essential knowledge you need to succeed in these careers! You will encounter interesting topics like beauty and wellness, cooking, fashion designing, tourism, hospitality, and handicrafts.

Industrial Arts

Industrial Arts is for students who are interested in honing their technical skills in Plumbing, Welding, Repair and Installation, Automotives, Electronics, Carpentry, and Construction.

Information and Communication Technology

Information and Communication Technology or ICT deals with various tools for communication and information dissemination. In the ICT strand, you will study topics like Software and Hardware Installation, Computer Programming and Servicing, Contact Center Services, and Graphics.

What can I do after I graduate from the TVL Track?

The best thing about TVL is that you will have a lot of options after senior high and upon getting your National Certificates or NC. NCs are the certifications you will receive when you pass the skills assessment of TESDA. Aside from this, you can also go to college or even apply for a job right away.

What are the characteristics I need to have in order to succeed in this track?

TVL prepares students for a number of work fields. To succeed in this track, you ideally need to have these skills:

  • Communication skills – ability to communicate well with clients and co-workers
  • Critical Thinking – ability to think and make smart decisions at the right time
  • Body Coordination – ability to maintain body coordination especially with the eye and hands when performing hands-on, labor-intensive tasks
  • Tool-savvy – ability to use modern and conventional tools and equipment needed in your profession
  • Troubleshooting skills – ability to easily identify the source of a problem and come up with effective solutions
  • Safety – observing safety measures in your workplace at all times
