• Tesda earmarks P8M for free animation training


    THE Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (Tesda) has allocated more than P8 million worth of scholarship vouchers for pre-employment training and retooling of incoming workers in the animation industry.

    Joel Villanueva, Tesda director general, said the state skills training agency and the Animation Council of the Philippines Inc. (ACPI) on Thursday renewed their partnership that aimed to train select scholars in Animation NC II, 2D Digital Animation NC III, and 3D Animation NC III under its Training for Work Scholarship Program (TWSP).

    Villanueva said “I believe there are currently more jobs available in the animation industry than there are trained professionals to take up these jobs.”

    Thus, the partnership will “create a pool of qualified, globally competitive, and job-ready workforce needed by the animation industry.”

    It targets at least an 80-percent employment rate within six months after the completion of the program. The Tesda will finance the project while ACPI will supervise the training. The council will also endorse training institutions with Tesda-registered programs to undertake the training of qualified applicants.

    The ACPI will prioritize enterprise-based and   school-based technical vocational institutions with high employment track records in the allocation of the scholarship vouchers to ensure a higher employment rate, ease of facilitation and monitoring of training sessions and proper use of the scholarship vouchers. The Council has also committed to form a fund replenishment scheme to extend the mileage of the scholarship program.

    A contribution to a talent development fund (TDF) will be made by an ACPI-member company every time it absorbs or hires successful graduates of the TWSP. The TDF will be developed, managed and utilized solely by the ACPI to sustain the training of their needed workforce.
