There was a Team Building Activity held in February 2015 at Tagaytay City conducted specifically for all the accredited Assessors in the PASMAK District. It was facilitated by Mr. Juan Cruz de Castro of PCCI.
The activity was conducted to improve the camaraderie and team work among the assessors in the district. It was also hoped to enhance the working relationship and partnership of the assessors between and among them with the Assessment Managers and the TESDA PASMAK who oversee and monitor the implementation of the program.
There were around 100 assessors who participated the event.
Pursuant to the updated National TESD Plan 2011-2016 and NCR TESD Plan, TESDA Pasay-Makati District Office revived its District Technical Education and Skills Development Committee (DTESDC).

Asusano, DOLE Director Rowella Grande, Industry Sector by Tommy Uyliapco, TVET Sector by Oscar Ibay, Critical Sector by Jeffrey Sosa and Rufino Eduardo H.

TESDA Pasay-Makati in its aim to reach out to the disadvantaged group, trained trainers and educators of the Philippine National School for the Blind. They in turn will be able to impart their learnings to their co-workers.
The training started last October 22, 2014 and will end on December. The on-going twenty-six (26) visually impaired participants were being trained in Massage Therapy NC II held at the COSMOS Training Center, Inc. along Pasay City. The endeavor targets about forty (40) participants until end of the year. Executive Director Martha M. Hernandez of the Partnerships and Linkages Office (PLO) of TESDA conducted an orientation to all the on-going participants prior to the beginning of the program under the Training for Work Scholarship Program (TWSP) of TESDA.
The aim of the training program is to equip the visually impaired educators the skills to perform therapeutic massage assessment and remedial therapeutic massage treatment which in turn will enable them to impart later the learned expertise to their students. After the training program, all participants will undergo the national competency assessment which will further strengthen their newly acquired competencies.
