Premiere automotive technical school, Toyota Motor Philippines School of Technology (TMP Tech), recently received the “Two Stars Award” from the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) for quality standards and course implementation of Automotive Servicing National Certification (NC) Level IV.
The conferment was held during the 4th National Quality TVET Forum, wherein TMP Tech emerged as the sole recipient of the award among 338 TESDA-accredited automotive Technical-Vocational Institutions (TVI) nationwide.
The Two Stars Award is the second highest distinction under the TESDA’s System for TVET Accreditation and Recognition or STAR Program that aims to promote and uphold excellence among TVI. This year, while no TVI has received the Three Star Awards, only five among TVI in the country have been conferred with the Two Stars Award.
TMP Tech, being the only awardee among TVI with automotive course, affirms its standing as a “Center of Technical Proficiency” on the national level. This is evident through its development and implementation of sound processes and procedures to establish a quality assurance system in NC training and assessment.
Despite the challenges brought by the pandemic, TMP Tech finds ways to continuously enhance its curriculum through collaboration with partners and adaptation of blended learning modality. With its recent partnership with Colombo Plan Staff College, an international governmental organization, its instructors have been engaging in online training on global TVET standards with professionals from various Asian countries.
Moreover, through various scholarship partners such as the Toyota Dealer Association and GT Foundation Inc., the school has boosted its scholarship programs on top of its flexible tuition payment schemes for students facing economic difficulties.
