TESDA Women's Center Tracer Study of Graduates from 2016-2019
The purpose of a Tracer Study is to provide valuable information about the situation of graduates after completion of training. It is also a tool for assisting institutions in finding out the effectiveness and relevance of the training programs they offer. Evaluating the impact the training programs have had on its graduates will enable the institutions to deliver future program offerings more effectively.

It utilized a combination of quantitative and qualitative data collection and analysis techniques covering the employment status, job experiences and challenges encountered by the graduates. It is in part, a curriculum and program assessment and evaluation if the graduates had effectively achieved their purpose of enrolling on their respective training programs.
