President of Samsung Philippines, Mr. Minsu Chu, expressed gratitude for the partnership and affirmed Samsung’s commitment to encouraging more women and youth to pursue careers in electronics and Information and Communications Technology (ICT). As a global leader in technology, Samsung aims to set a good example by advocating for gender equality, empowering women in the workplace, and providing talent development for the youth through programs like the Samsung and TESDA Technical Training Program.

Skills Training for Women and Youth

Consumer Electronics Training Program for Women One of the programs under the renewed partnership is the Consumer Electronics Training Program for the TESDA Women’s Center. This program is designed to enhance the knowledge and skills of selected Filipina learners aged 18 to 21 years old in consumer electronics servicing. The trainees will undergo three months of on-the-job training under Samsung Electronics Philippines Corporation (SEPCO), with three batches of 50 students each. The program will be implemented in the second quarter of 2023 and hosted at the TESDA Taguig TWC Office.

Handheld Device Training Program for TVET The Handheld Device Training Program for Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) is also part of the partnership. This program is open to Filipinos aged 18 to 21 and provides learners with the competencies necessary to service the hardware and software issues that arise in mobile phones and other handheld electronics like tablets and wearable devices. Similar to the Consumer Electronics Training Program, trainees will undergo a three-month on-the-job training under SEPCO. The program will start in the third quarter of 2023 and will be hosted in current TESDA Centers in Laguna and Zamboanga, with 100 students per location.

Skills Development and Training for Non-Traditional Trades in ICT and Electronics The Samsung and TESDA Technical Training Program aims to equip learners with competencies and opportunities by providing skills development and training. The goal is to unleash their potential in non-traditional trades in ICT and electronics. The partnership between Samsung Electronics Philippines Corporation (SEPCO) and TESDA started in 2015 with the establishment of the Electronics Products Assembly and Servicing Training Laboratory in Biñan City, Laguna and in Zamboanga. The partnership provided learning opportunities for the youth under TESDA’s Electronics Products Assembly and Servicing (EPAS) NC II course.

In-Plant and In-School Training Both the Consumer Electronics Training Program for the TESDA Women’s Center and the Handheld Device Training Program for TVET provide in-plant and in-school training based on a training plan established and conducted collaboratively by an accredited educational institution and a business entity. The trainees will be able to immerse themselves in and learn about the whole line-up of Samsung products, including Smart Things, which provides exposure to the internet of things (IoT) and connectivity.
