Tarlac’s Concepcion Vocational School (CVS) was awarded the Gold Accreditation by the Asia Pacific Accreditation and Certification Commission (APACC), placing the technology school in the 4th spot among the best educational institutions in the region.
CVS, a Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) technology institution in Central Luzon, improved its previous Silver Accreditation received in April 2019 to Gold in August following a June site visit by the APACC team of technology-vocational school quality evaluators.
CVS offers programs registered with TESDA under the Unified TVET Program Registration and Accreditation System (UTPRAS) with emphasis on agriculture, vocational and technical training, and science and technology education.
Tarlac’s CVS was given a score of 478.5 out of 500, the highest APACC points among Philippine institutions. CVS will hold its gold-level status until August 4, 2023.
“I commend the CVS for maintaining its upward growth trajectory since its first APACC accreditation in 2008. True to TESDA’s thrust of global competitiveness, they have worked tirelessly in improving their services and facilities,” TESDA Director General, Secretary Isidro S. Lapeña said in a TESDA report about the CVS achievement.
The school was reassessed according to set APACC criteria including governance and management, teaching and learning, human resources, research and development, image and sustainability, and support to students, among others.
“The accreditation awarded to CVS is a source of pride not only for the institution but for the entire country since it gives international recognition to the institution’s quality, accountability and public trust,” CVS Administrator Dr. Alvin L. Yturralde said in response to the Gold status award.
There are now 5 Philippine educational institutions with Gold-level APACC Accreditations:
1. Concepcion Vocational School (CVS)
2. Puerto Princesa School of Arts and Trades (PPSAT)
3. Davao Oriental Polytechnic Institute (DOPI)
4. Quezon National Agricultural School (QNAS)
5. TESDA Women’s Center
Notable technology-vocational school graduates who built successful careers and rose above their poor economic status include Petron Bataan Refinery Project engineer Kenneth T. del Rosario, former homeless Merry Rose De Vera, and Bagosphere graduates.
