Benefiting from its experience with the WISE (work improvement in small enterprises) programme, the Philippines added its own contents in 1995 and has engaged enthusiastically in activities. Since 2001 the emphasis has been placed on the grooming of trainers, and experts have been dispatched for this purpose. Groups of core trainers and trainers now hold regional and workplace seminars independently. Prompted by the holding of an evaluation meeting, industrial efforts are making progress, and the construction of a database and website utilization are also advancing.
The Education Department of the Trade Union Congress of the Philippines (TUCP) plays a leading role in organizing seminars in the regions in cooperation with core trainers. Trainers have been groomed as core actors in these regions.
