Launch of the ILO and TESDA pilot training programme on domestic work

The ILO FAIR Project and TESDA launched a pilot training programme on domestic work. Obtaining a National Certificate II (NCII) warrants the importance of a needs-based blended training to prepare Overseas Filipino Workers for skills assessment prior to deployment, and the work and life that await them abroad.



Since the start of the community quarantine in the Philippines due to the COVID-19 pandemic, technical-vocational training courses that require physical interaction have been cancelled. This resulted in the inability of prospective Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) to complete deployment requirements, specifically a National Certificate II (NCII) on domestic work.

The need to obtain an NCII during the pandemic warrants the importance of a needs-based blended training programme to fully prepare workers not only for the skills assessment prior to deployment, but also for the work and life that await them abroad.

In line with this, the International Labour Organization (ILO) Integrated Programme on Fair Recruitment (FAIR) Project, in collaboration with the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) and the Fair Training Center (FTC), will pilot a 12-day domestic work training programme, which combines a 10-day online and a 2-day offline set of training modules. ILO and TESDA officially launched this pilot training programme on domestic work on 24 May 2021.
