On 14 September 2016, ICDL Asia participated in the ICT Employment Opportunities and Certifications Forum in the Manila, Philippines. Participants of this event included States Universities and Department of ICT (DICT) Clusters Offices, together with some National Government Agencies.
Following the Human Capital Development Event in June this year, organized by DICT where ICDL Asia met up with seven State Universities and Colleges (SUCs) and 43 National Government Agencies (NGAs), ICDL Asia is joining forces again with DICT to advocate the importance of an International Workforce Standard Certification Programme. This time, we have reached 34 Academic Institutions and three National Government Agencies, showing an increasing interest in the ICDL programme in the Philippines.
ICDL Asia participated in this event as part of our commitment to raise awareness on the importance of an International Workforce Standard Certification Programme in the Philippines. Together with the DICT, we hope to promote the ICDL programme to the public sector in the Philippines and continuously reach out to academic institutions and national government agencies.
