A total of 50 rubber industry stakeholders validated the draft training regulations (TRs) on Rubber Production Services NC II and Rubber Processing Services NC II at the Cogon Palace, Capitol Complex, Ipil Heights, Zamboanga Sibugay on November 21, 2011. Validation of the draft TRs is a requirement of the TESDA Board.
The TRs were first drafted on September 26-29, 2011 at the Kabasalan Institute of Technology (KIT) in Kabasalan, Zamboanga Sibugay by rubber industry experts, farmers, processors coming from the different rubber cooperatives in Zamboanga Sibugay and Basilan, and trainers from the Department of Agriculture, Local Government Units, Higher Educational Institutions, and Technical-Vocational Institutions (TVIs) in the region and in North Cotabato.
After the validation, workshops were conducted on competency-based curriculum development, competency assessment instrument development, session plan, and competency-based learning materials development on November 22-25, 2011. These documents are needed to complete the whole package of the training regulations.
Training regulations actually describe the specifications of competencies required for effective work performance. These also contain the curriculum design, training delivery, trainee entry requirements, tools and requirements, training facilities and trainer’s qualification. The policies governing assessment and certification procedure are also explained.
With the finalization and promulgation of these TRs, interested educational institutions and training centers can use these as basis for program registration and delivery of technical-vocational education and training (TVET) programs on rubber. Assessment centers can also use the TRs when they apply for TESDA accreditation. The assessment included in the TRs will test whether the graduate or worker can perform the standards expected in the workplace. Rubber industry workers have the chance to get a TESDA National Certificate (NC) once they pass the assessment. Students who will enroll in these qualifications will also be certified by TESDA after passing assessment. The NC will serve as their evidence that they have all the competencies required to work in the rubber plantation and processing companies. This ensures the productivity, quality and global competitiveness of our rubber industry workers.
Both the TR validation and the workshops were given full financial and administrative support by the provincial government of Zamboanga Sibugay under the leadership of Gov. Rommel Jalosjos as part of its commitment to develop the rubber industry in the province.
TESDA IX has been pursuing these initiatives not only to professionalize our workers but also to further the growth of the rubber industry in the region.
