Quezon City to establish Tesda competency assessment centers

The Quezon City government continues its thrust in prioritizing education and development of skills through the establishment of city-operated Tesda accredited competency assessment centers.

The Tesda-accredited competency assessment centers are school-based or stand-alone facilities that assess and certify an individual’s skills, knowledge, attitude, and work values relative to the units of competency prescribed by the industry.

City Ordinance 2856-2019, authored by former District 5 councilor and now Education Affairs Unit chief Julienne Alyson Rae Medalla, states that the city-owned assessment centers will be supervised by the Office of the City Mayor and managed by the School Division Office.

Through the legislation, a Competency Assessment Committee will be formed to create a standard manual of operations of the centers, and to draft the ordinance’s Implementing Rules and Regulations.

The Committee will be composed of the City Mayor as the chairperson; and Schools Division Office (SDO) Superintendent as the vice chairman.

Committee members include the City Council’s Committee on Education chairperson; and representatives from SDO, Treasurer’s Office, Local Economic Investment Promotions Office, Scholarship and Youth Development Program, Local School Board Secretariat, Competency Assessment Center Supervisor, Center Managers, Public Employment Service Office, and Tesda.
