DILLS/& INDEX
Introduced by SENATOR JOEL “TESDAMAN” VILLANUEVA
AN ACT PROVIDING FOR A REVISED APPRENTICESHIP
PROGRAM, REPEALING FOR THE PURPOSE CHAPTERS I
AND II OF TITLE II OF PRESIDENTIAL DECREE NO. 442, AS
AMENDED, OTHERWISE KNOWN AS THE LABOR CODE OF
THE PHILIPPINES
EXPLANATORY NOTE
The apprenticeship program is one of the components of the
enterprise-based training programs being implemented by the Technical
Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA). It involves a contract
between an apprentice and an employer on an approved apprenticeable
occupation. Generally, it aims to provide a mechanism that will ensure
availability of qualified skilled workers based on industry requirements.
Based on data from TESDA, only 399 companies have registered
apprenticeship and learnership programs as of March 2015. This low
participation among employers points to the need to revise and strengthen
the existing national apprenticeship program by repealing Chapters I and II of
Title II of Presidential Decree No. 442, as amended, othenwise known as the
Labor Code of the Philippines.
Under the existing program, the period of apprenticeship covers a
minimum of three months and a maximum of six months. Only companies
with approved and registered apprenticeship programs under TESDA can hire
apprentices. The bill sets the duration of the training according to the
complexity of the skills to be learned by the apprentices but it shall not exceed
two (2) years. It also requires participating entities in the apprenticeship
program to provide a disability and/or accident insurance policy in favor of the
apprentices during the apprenticeship period.
