The growth of interest in studies for IT related courses started back in the 80's when the world of computers boomed and got the attention of the world. In the Philippines, the slow moving transfer of latest information about computers, software and hardware is still on its baby stage, meaning there is still a big space to fill in order to develop a lot of skilled labor.
TESDA helps make it happen by putting up with the demand for coming up with cheap labor through high school graduates who do not have the money to continue studying but have the inkling interest to be included in the online scholarship program being offered to bonafide and qualified students willing to train and finish TESDA computer course.
When we talk about information technology (IT) courses, we talk about computers and everything that revolves around it. With the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority under Secretary Joel Villanueva, IT courses were being given one of the top priority to be offered to qualified scholars. Here, they will be given allowance plus free tuition fee during and while under training to any of the listed TESDA courses they want to enroll in. If you want to see what requirements you need to come up with in order to qualify, please visit the official TESDA website here - www.tesda.gov.ph.

By now it must be understood that there is a very big difference between a TESDA branch from an accredited training center, school or institution. Most of the time, if you are looking to study for free in the Philippines through the scholarship programs of TESDA, you will have to make your inquiry in any designated nearest branch near your area of residence. Otherwise, you might end up with just an accredited institution wherein you will be obliged to pay for high tuition fees just to be included in their study program.
