Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) is looking for 75 people who will be able to teach foreign languages to Filipinos.
According to TESDA Deputy Director General Alvin Feliciano, the agency is lacking language trainers for Filipinos aspiring to be overseas Filipino workers (OFW.)
“Gusto natin sa mga OFW, ‘pag pumunta sila sa ibang bansa, ready sila doon sa lengguwahe, at the same time, alam nila ‘yong kultura,” ani Feliciano. [We want our OFWs to be ready with the foreign language, at the same time, they know the culture of the place they’re going to.]
TESDA is particularly looking for trainers who will be teaching Nihongo (Japanese), Korean, Spanish, Mandarin, Arabic, and English.
In the new language courses, TESDA is also in need of trainers for French, Bahasa Indonesia, and German.
Being a trainer can also be a part-time job, said TESDA.
TESDA is also open for foreigners who have working visa in the Philippines.
Among the requirements are:
- At least one year experience in teaching language
- excellent in oral and written communication
- computer literate
- certification from TESDA
“Promising siya sa paningin ko ngayon, lalo pa’t sa Japan siyempre maraming job openings,” said Dada Horiuchi, a trainer who have been teaching Nihongo for four years. [For me, it’s promising, especially in Japan where there’s a lot of job openings.]
