What is the PTQF?

This is a nationally promulgated framework (BR# 2003-05) of competency classification and recognition for middle level skilled workers. The Philippine TVET Qualification Framework (PTQF) is a quality-assured structure used as platform for giving recognition to the attainment of knowledge, skills, attitudes and values along the middle-level skilled occupations

Principles of Philippine TVET Qualifications Framework (PTQF)

This serves to rationalize all TVET or middle-level skills into  a single, nationally recognized qualification
