The Power of Vocational Training and Professional Education

Time 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Venue AmCham Philippines 2/F Corinthian Plaza, 121 Paseo de Roxas cor. Gamboa St. Makati, Philippines

The concept of technical-vocational training has been around for quite some time but it is gaining popularity again now that business leaders are seeing the significance of upscaling employees and expanding their skills' capacity. Vocational training and employee capacity building have also expanded to tech and ICT training. Constant skills development and learning, whether by formal education or training, is also seen as a key to successful career growth.

In the Philippines, TESDA remains to be the main government agency to conduct technical education and vocational training but large companies are beginning to develop their own programs and hold vocational training for their employees. Companies such as DDLS Philippines and Aboitiz Equity Ventures, Inc. have joined forces last March to bring quality IT training to the Philippines. They also continue to conduct certified courses on Professional Development, Leadership, Project Management and more which aim to elevate employee skills and promote lifelong learning.

For the October Education Committee meeting, we have invited Aboitiz Equity Ventures Chief Human Resources Officer Susan Valdez and DDLS Country General Manager Mike Calma to talk about their initiatives and approach on vocational training, lifelong learning, and employee upscaling, and its importance in making businesses sustainable and globally competitive.

Speakers
Mike Calma
Country General Manager at DDLS Philippines

Chief Human Resources Officer at Aboitiz Equity Ventures, Inc.
