Aside from four-year degree courses, Technical-Vocational Education and Training or TVET is one of the education paths that you can take. TVET provides education and training on various practical skills that you can use for employment or starting your own business. The Technical Education and Skills Development Authority or TESDA, as well other TESDA-approved institutions offer a number of courses that you can try. In 2016 alone, there were more than 2 million students in the country who graduated from TVET. If you still aren’t sure about this path, here are some reasons for you to take TVET now:

1. You get hands-on experience a.k.a. job-ready skills.

TVET will equip you with job-relevant skills that you’ll need for the career path you’re planning to pursue in the future. Aside from this, you will also have a chance to earn National Certificates or Certificate of Competency through the Philippine TVET Competency Assessment and Certification System. With these trainings and certifications, you can be more confident as you face the daily challenges of your work.

2. There’s a high demand for it in various industries.

Did you know that according to TESDA, 7 out of 10 tech-voc graduates get a job? In fact, 43% of students from TVET with employers found jobs within 1 to 3 months after training. There are plenty of job opportunities that await TVET graduates especially in industries like food and beverage, wholesale and retail, manufacturing and other service activities.

3. Go through an easy application process!

Unlike the regular process of enrolling for bachelor’s degree programs, applying for a TVET course is easier because you just have to submit al the requirements and pass the skills and knowledge assessments (if required by the school). No sweat, because schools like Don Bosco One TVET and AMA Online Education allow interested students to apply online.

4. Study at a flexible pace and for a shorter duration.

Completing a TVET course can take only three months up to two years compared to the conventional academic paths that take four to five years making it easy for students to finish their education. Another reason to take TVET is that the program schedules are flexible. Working students can pick class hours that will fit their load.

5. It’s incredibly affordable.

Looking for ways to fund your education? Don’t worry! There are a lot of available scholarships that you can apply for. Here are some schools offering scholarships or subsidies that you might want to consider:

6. You get to study your interest (and pursue a career in it!)

With TVET, you don’t just gain skills, you also have the chance to enjoy the experience of studying what interests you most. Whether it’s cooking, baking, programming or handicrafts, there’s always a TVET center that caters to your need.

Here are some schools that offer, on top of their TVET programs, different short courses on a number of fields you can find in your location:

In general, taking the TVET path could lead you to an exciting career in the future. Plus, it gives you the convenience of finishing your education in your own phase. Interested in taking TVET courses? You can check Edukasyon.ph and see schools that offer TESDA courses near you!
