The Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) was established through the enactment of Republic Act No. 7796 otherwise known as the "Technical Education and Skills Development Act of 1994", which was signed into law by President Fidel V. Ramos on August 25, 1994. This Act aims to encourage the full participation of and mobilize the industry, labor, local government units and technical-vocational institutions in the skills development of the country's human resources.

There are four training modalities school-based, center-based, enterprise-based and community-based. These are being done with TESDA’s infrastructure in place - 57 TESDA administered schools, 60 training center, enterprize-based training through DTS/apprenticeship and community-based training in convergence with the LGU’s.
