Regional Director’s Message

Welcome to the website of the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority Region XI! 

As we live by this technology-driven era, we, the #TatakAgila Team, bring you our new and improved website that aims to inform you of the various technical education and skills development (TESD) programs with just a click away, wherever you may be.

It is our desire and goal that through this site, we will be able to reach more people and open a wide array of opportunities not only on developing and enhancing skills, but as well as assisting TESDA graduates for employment and livelihood opportunities.

TESDA, through the leadership of Director General, Isidro S. Lapeña, Ph.D., CSEE, is determined to bring and implement skills training programs from the urban up to the rural areas where our brothers and sisters, especially the Indigenous People’s communities are.

The agency’s thrust is also to help uplift the lives of the vulnerable sector, the special clients – the Returning/Repatriated Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs), Indigenous People and Cultural Communities, Drug Dependednts/surrenderees, Former Rebel Returnees, Inmates and Detainees, Wounded-in-Action Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) and Philippine National Police (PNP) personnel and more. TESDA likewise reaches out to the respective families of the beneficiaries, implementing the Whole of the Family Approach under the Executive Order No. 70 to ensure that all are given equal chances. A manifestation that the agency is pouring all its efforts and resources in bringing the government closer to the people.

As you click and scroll through our web page, you will see the hard work and dedication of the men and women of TESDA Region XI translate into the figures, as one of the highlights of our accomplishments, and all of what is in store for you here.

We hope that this website serve its purpose of informing and assisting you from your search of TVET programs to become a certified skilled worker and be a part of the globally competitive Filipino workforce.

All for the greater glory of God!
