“For me, teaching is a bliss. It the source of my joy and happiness.

The Tagsanay Award is one of TESDA’s institutional awards that gives recognition and incentives to trainers from private and public technical vocational institutions and TESDA technology institutions who have exceeded the requirements for TVET trainers and have demonstrated competencies beyond expectations.
Nominees of the Tagsanay underwent a stringent selection and elimination process starting from the provincial up to the regional level. Their portfolios were carefully scrutinized as their entry to the 8 finals culminating in a week-long national selection program with a series of online activities and interviews.
