BACOLOD CITY—The Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (Tesda) plans to set up a training center for animation, software and games development in Negros Occidental, said Tesda Director General Joel Villanueva.

Villanueva was in Bacolod City to speak at the forum of Bacolod Negros Occidental Federation for Information and Communications Technology during graduation rites at West Negros University.


Villanueva said he had spoken with the heads of the Department of Education (DepEd) and the Philippine Gaming and Amusement Corp. over plans to set up the training center, which will be piloted in Negros Occidental under the DepEd’s K to 12 program.

The pilot center would be designed to train people for jobs in animation, software or games development, he said. Carla P. Gomez, Inquirer Visayas
