Tesda goes mobile with new Android app

The Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (Tesda) on Thursday, Jan. 24, launched its Tesda App, which aimed at making information on technical vocational education and training easily accessible to the public.

The free application is initially available for any device running Google’s Android operating system and can be downloaded through Google’s Play. The iOS version of the app will be available on iTunes once Apple has approved it, the agency said.

The Tesda app contains information on the agency’s programs and services, as well as the training institutions with Tesda-approved courses offerings, their locations, and contact details.

It will also have the latest news on Tesda programs, scholarships and other services.

“Being able to reach people to get information on technical vocational education and training wherever they are provides a whole new level of speed, efficiency and convenience to promoting Tesda services,” Tesda Director-General Joel Villanueva said.

“With this innovation, Tesda is reinventing the Filipinos’ access to TVET and potential employment,” he added.

To download, launch the Google Play app from the device, then tap on the search button and enter the keyword “Tesda.” From a list of search results, tap on the item “Tesda” by Nueca Technologies,” then select the install button to install the Tesda app in the device.

The App can be used in offline mode after the database has been downloaded to the phone. It may be used to search for available courses and contact details of the school. However, to use the News feed and Map function, one needs to be connected to the Internet.
