During the recent launch of the $8-million Philippines-Korea Technological and Cooperation Center in Taguig City, Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) Secretary Joel Villanueva said there’s a growing demand for health information management, animation, call center processes, and game development in the outsourcing sector of the country. He noted that the organization is eager to provide training programs to develop local talent in the Philippines.

The TESDA executive attended the inauguration of the Human Resource Development Institute - formed through the partnership between TESDA and the South Korean government. It is set to address manpower challenges for complex processes.

Growing demand in the outsourcing sector calls for skills training for graduating students

Non-BPO services are also being eyed for development in the country. Aside from BPO services, students can also improve their skills in construction, tourism, and language.

One of the key skills they are looking to develop is learning the Korean language since there is already a need for the skill, specifically for those who are going to work for Korean companies in Seoul. There are already volunteers from Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) and Filipino trainers who are assigned to assist in teaching the Korean language.

South Korean Ambassador to the Philippines Lee Hyuk said the tech co-op center is donated by the South Korean government for the development of complex digital arts processes. Other segments that South Korea is working on are healthcare, agricultural development, and vocational training.
