In an effort to bring together technical directors from Don Bosco TVET centers across the country, Don Bosco-One TVET Philippines, Inc. organized the 2022 FIN & FIS Technical Directors Summit. Fr. Jose Dindo Vitug, SDB, the Executive Director of DB1TVET, lead the summit by discussing the agendas that tackled a review of DB1TVET’s Vision and Mission, updating and revising DB1TVET Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws, presenting DB1TVET’s sustainability plan. The main focus of the TD Summit is to draw up a draft sustainability action plan for each TVET center. As time passes by, catching up to the changes and trends is important for an organization, this is one of the reasons why DB1TVET hosted the said event. The summit was also an opportunity for the attendees to network with one another and exchange ideas, which can help the TVET centers improve and cope with the changes.
