The Philippine IT-BPO industry has seen exponential growth and industry leaders are confident that this momentum will continue. Both the government and private sectors have taken steps to address issues on workforce talent sustainability.

The Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA), in partnership with Business Processing Association of the Philippines (BPAP), recently launched a P25.2-million trainers’ training program that aims to provide standardized skill sets for teachers and trainers in the IT-BPO industry. Jointly developed by TESDA and BPAP, Trainers Methodology (TM) Plus is designed to ultimately increase the number of hires in the Philippine outsourcing sector.

TM Plus is part of a series of educational programs under the P500-million Industry-based Training for Work Scholarship Program (I-TWSP), a major component of the outsourcing industry’s roadmap for 2016 with goals of reaching US$25 billion in revenues and 4.5 million industry-generated jobs by 2016 (1.3 million direct and 3.2 million indirect).

TESDA allocated vouchers worth P18 million for TM Plus and 804 vouchers worth P7.2 million for TM-1, the first-generation version of the training program. The scholarship vouchers will be available through selected technical vocational institutions (TVIs) in Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.

“TM Plus ensures a pool of highly competent IT-BPO trainers,” said TESDA director-general, Joel Villanueva. “Those who have completed the training will train the next batch of trainers, achieving a multiplier effect that will increase IT-BPO-oriented training opportunities.”
