PIA Press Release

TESDA Kalinga offers Pangulong Gloria scholarships

Tabuk City, Kalinga (21 February) -- In support to the directives of President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo to step up and sustain their massive skills training, retraining and livelihood programs, the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) is offering free trainings at the Provincial Training Center (PTC) this 2009.

According to TESDA-CAR Regional Director Cenon M. Querubin, said Pangulong Gloria Scholarship Program was initiated by Secretary Augusto Boboy Syjuco to address the employment problems as a result of the global financial crisis.

In his message during the TESDA Skills Olympics held during the 2009 Ullalim Festival, Querubin underscored the practicality of taking up TESDA Technical Vocational Courses to cope with the crisis saying that aside from completing a course within a very short period of three to seven months, tech voc courses provide better employment opportunities.

Aside from the free training, the Arroyo Administration he said has also allotted a P50.00 daily allowance for each scholar to ensure and encourage the completion of their enrolled courses.

Meanwhile, as part of continuing efforts of the administration to assist displaced workers and overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) in the electronics sector to match their skills in BPO- related jobs, the President has recently directed Director-General Syjuco and Business Processing Association of the Philippines (BPAP) President Oscar Sanez to "re-tool the retrenched engineers from the electronics sector so that they can be prepared as engineers for the BPO industry."

Said order was issued when PGMA visited TESDA's Training Matching and Job Assistance Fair in Taguig City after discovering that more retrenched workers from the electronics and semi-conductor companies in the CALABARZON area had been re-hired in the BPO industry.

"Hindi lamang call center agents, hindi lamang medical transcriptionists ang kailangan nila, para mas bumilis ang paglaki ng industriya kailangan i-hire yung mga engineers for their applications," the President said. (ggd/PIA-Kalinga) [top]
