TESDA Orientation and Re-echo on the Evaluation of PQF Level 5 Programs

            The institutionalization of the Philippine Qualifications' Framework (PQF) in 2012, thru Executive Order No. 83, established a coherent national and internationally benchmarked structure for all qualifications awarded in the Philippines. The PQF, which encourages lifelong learning, is a quality-assured national system for the development, recognition, and award of qualifications based on the standards of knowledge, skills and, values acquired in different ways and methods by learners and workers educated/trained in the Philippines.

            Last October 11, 2019, Ms. Recy Beth M. Escopel (TVL Representative) together with Ms. Richelle Magsico went to Iloilo Grand Hotel to learn things about the Evaluation of PQF Level 5 (Diploma) Programs. It was spearheaded by Regional Director Gaspar S. Gayona together with all the provincial directors in Western Visayas.

            They have emphasized that the PQF has 8 qualification levels. Levels 1 to 5 comprise the TVET Qualifications, while levels 6 to 8 are for Higher Education programs. Each PQF level is described in 3 domains: 1) knowledge, skills, and values; 2) application; and 3) degree of independence. Also, the regional director encouraged all schools to have at least one approved DIT program for this school year.

            It was very fruitful and interesting since they have elaborated all the needed things for all the institutions to comprehend the topic well.
