21 DSWD-AVRC trainees show skills, potentials in TESDA NC II

by Monette H. Herrera

SAN FERNANDO CITY, La Union, Jan. 13 (PIA) -- Around 21 persons with disability trainees of DSWD Area 1 Vocational Rehabilitation Center (AVRC) in region 1 recently passed the National Competency Assessment-Level II (NC II) designed by Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) as they proved their skills and potentials on dressmaking, commercial cooking and hairdressing in the competition.

The activity was carried out to promote advancement in different vocational courses and to provide quality training and better employment opportunities to persons with disability, AVRC Center Head Elizabeth Manuel said.

According to the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Region 1 Information Officer Iryn de los Reyes, the assessors were impressed with the performance of the trainees, despite their ability. They worked really hard to pass all the qualifications.

The said activity was considered a good preparation for employment having been institutionalized in the training program to enhance competencies of trainees. It also generates public awareness that persons with disabilities can be experts in many endeavors.

Likewise, the activity is in line with the Regional Development Plan wherein it is one of the strategies of DSWD and TESDA to provide programs and standards towards quality technical education and skill development in order for the disadvantaged individuals or communities to maximize their potentials and improve their quality of life.
