TESDA is an acronym that means “Technical Education and Skills Development Authority.” The Tesda logo is a human-like figure enclosed in a gear-like image.
It comes in different colors such as white, gray, or black, but in general, it is often in shades of blue. Most of the time it also has a white background. At the center, you will see a human (raising its arms) stick figure while it is inside the rotary gear-like image.
The head or the big blue dot represents the Filipino skilled workers. The body or three connected lines at the center represents the foundation of the technical and vocational Education Training (TVET) system namely the private training institutions, industry, and the government.
The whole logo which is composed of the human figure enclosed with a gear-like image means that by focusing on manpower development we will empower industrial progress.
According to its official website, the institution was enacted as the Technical Education and Skills Development Act of 1994 or Republic Act No. 7796. The former president of the Philippines, Fidel V. Ramos eventually signed it into law in 1994.
At present, tesda offers school-based, center-based, community-based, and enterprise-based programs. TESDA’s central office is located along East Service Road, South Luzon Expressway in Taguig City, NCR. Its zip code is 1630.
