The Toyota Motor Philippines School of Technology or TMP Tech, a premiere automotive technical school, received the “Two Stars Award” from the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) for quality standards and course implementation of Automotive Servicing National Certification (NC) Level IV. The conferment was held during the 4th National Quality TVET Forum, wherein TMP Tech stood out as the sole recipient of the award among 338 TESDA-accredited automotive Technical-Vocational Institutions (TVIs) nationwide.
The Two Stars Award is the second highest distinction under the TESDA’s System for TVET Accreditation and Recognition or STAR Program that aims to promote and uphold excellence among TVIs. This year, while no TVI has received the Three Star Awards, only five among TVIs in the Philippines have been conferred with the Two Stars Award. TMP Tech being the only awardee among TVIs with automotive course, affirms its standing as a “Center of Technical Proficiency” on the national level, made evident by its development and implementation of sound processes and procedures to establish a Quality Assurance System in NC training and assessment.
Despite the challenges brought by the COVID-19 pandemic, TMP Tech finds ways to continuously enhance its curriculum through collaboration with partners and adaptation of blended learning modality. With its recent partnership with Colombo Plan Staff College, an international governmental organization, TMP Tech instructors have been engaging in online training on global TVET standards with professionals from various Asian countries. Moreover, through various scholarship partners such as the Toyota Dealer Association and GT Foundation, Inc., the school has boosted its scholarship programs on top of its flexible tuition payment schemes for students facing economic difficulties.
Founded in 2013 by Toyota Motor Corporation Honorary Chairman Dr. Shoichiro Toyota and TMP Founding Chairman Dr. George S.K. Ty, TMP Tech has been geared towards developing highly skilled Filipino youth through world-class education. It has established its presence as a major source of highly competent automotive professionals for the local and global Toyota Network.
TMP Tech currently conducts online classes as well as workshop sessions under strict health and safety protocols in its campus in Santa Rosa City, Laguna. Enrollment for the incoming batch opens with an announcement of online admissions for student applicants.
