Batanes colleges accredit courses under TESDA ladderized education program

by Necitas G. Alconis

BASCO, Batanes, January 17 (PIA) -- The Batanes State College (BSC) and Saint Dominic College (SDC) have accredited courses under the ladderized education program of the Technical Education Skills and Development Authority (TESDA).

Juanita Acacio, TESDA administrative officer said eight courses in BSC and two courses in SDC have been granted National Certificate (NC) level II.

The Batanes State College offers courses such as food and beverage services, automotive servicing, plumbing, consumer electronics, bar tending, food processing and baking while the Saint Dominic College offers Automotive servicing and computer hardware servicing.

With their accreditation to National Certificate II, Acacio said, their scholars obtained NC II eligibility through assessment tests in oral, written and practicum.

Scholars who passed the assessment tests use the NC II as passport for work in prestigious companies in the province or in Metro Manila.

Acacio said some of their scholars in Baking and Food Services are employed at the St. Dominic College Canteen and Bakery Inc., and at the Octagon Bed and Dine both located in Basco.

The TESDA scholarship programs have reduced financial burden for the Ivatan average earners because their children enjoy free tuition fee in local college institutions. They have free transportation expenses and pay minimal boarding fees. (TCB/NGA/PIA Batanes)
