Globe and TM subscribers may now sharpen their technical skills online without worrying about data connectivity costs.
With the partnership between Globe and the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA), all Globe and TM subscribers now have free data access to the TESDA Online Program (TOP). Subscribers can visit the website anytime using their mobile device, even without load and without incurring any data charges.
TOP is an open educational resource that aims to make technical vocational education and training more accessible to Filipino citizens. It offers free online courses such as Computer Systems Servicing NC II, Food Processing NC II, Bread and Pastry NC II, Housekeeping NC II, and other courses from other sectors.
TESDA Secretary Isidro Lapeña expressed his gratitude to Globe for helping the agency reach more Filipinos in need.
“We are glad to have this opportunity of serving more Filipinos in line with our guiding principle, ‘TESDA Abot Lahat.‘ Now, our services can reach even our kababayan who have no access to the internet or mobile data. Indeed, this is a very special milestone,” he said.
Meanwhile, Globe’s Chief Sustainability Officer and SVP for Corporate Communications Yoli Crisanto said Globe and TM subscribers can get equal opportunities to further better themselves through the online courses.
“With the uncertainties that we are facing, we need to be prepared to take on new challenges, making it important to continuously learn and explore new ways of doing things,” she said. – Rappler.com
