Sector reports - Further education and skills: The Philippines 2015

One of East Asia’s most dynamic emerging markets, the Philippines has experienced continuous economic growth in recent years. With sound economic fundamentals and a competitive workforce that is well-known around the world, the government recognises education is fundamental to creating more and better jobs, enhancing national and international competitiveness, and achieving growth targets. Although the country’s expanding working population provides a valuable resource in terms of helping to fulfill government objectives, the quality of education and training limits skill supply, and the workforce is not equipped with the skills needed to support the developing economy. Education and training has not responded to changes in the labour market, resulting in a mismatch of skills and employers’ needs. Quality technical vocational education and training (TVET) is critical in addressing the skills gap, supporting the changing demands of the labour market, and enhancing the long-term ability of the Philippines to innovate, adapt, and assimilate.

This special report provides an overview of government policy and the institutional framework for skills delivery, with intelligence on market size, structure, and the quality and scale of TVET services currently available in the Philippines. While providing perspective and insight into the country’s TVET system, the report highlights the challenges and opportunities for international training providers, suppliers and educators in this dynamic market.

Skills will have a key role in helping to drive sustainable economic growth in the Philippines by supporting the expanding service sector, relaunching the manufacturing sector as an engine of growth, and enhancing the long-term ability of the country to innovate and adapt and assimilate new technologies.
