Poverty remains to be the most critical social problem in the Philippines. The Philippines has a high rate of inequality (0.4678 GINIG) and the poor are socially excluded from the benefits generated by growth. More than 25% of Filipinos are living below the poverty line. One of the most direct paths out of poverty is improving worker skills. The Department of Labour and Employment (DOLE-CAR) reported that 80 percent of the available jobs, locally and abroad, require technical vocational education and skills training (Philippine Information Agency 23/04/2013).
