PIA Press Release

Cagayan de Oro City holds jobs bridging skills event

Cagayan de Oro City (25 February) -- the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA), in partnership with other attached agencies of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) is holding another skills and jobs event for displaced OFWs and other jobseekers on February 26 at SM City in Cagayan de Oro City.

Dubbed "Jobs Bridging, Skills Retraining", the event will showcase jobs training linked to job openings of recruitment agencies.

Some 2,150 returning OFWs, jobseekers and graduates of technical vocational courses from Northern Mindanao, Davao Region and CARAGA are coming to the skills and jobs event to avail themselves of the various employment, training and livelihood opportunities.

President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo is visiting the event early afternoon to see for herself the delivery of employment and training services to the displaced workers in the area.

She will also talk to the workers, jobseekers, employers and heads of training institutions.

"We are putting up this skills and jobs event in Mindanao to assist Mindanaoans who have lost their jobs as an aftermath of the worldwide economic crunch," says Secretary Augusto Boboy Syjuco, TESDA director general.

"The job of TESDA and its partner companies may involve re-tooling our displaced workers and re-matching them to available jobs, or retraining them for livelihood skills," explains Secretary Syjuco.

Syjuco said that among the most in-demand jobs today are those of welders, aircraft mechanics, animation artists, software developers, and other BPO workers.

Training services including retraining and skills upgrading are offered by TESDA to qualified displaced workers in various qualifications through the Pangulong Gloria Scholarships.

Displaced workers and their dependents are offered three service options by the government and partner organizations- job placement, skills training, and livelihood opportunities.

Forty regional and Manila-based recruitment and manpower placement agencies for local and overseas jobs are joining the event to offer job opportunities to the displaced workers and other jobseekers.

TESDA partner government agencies in this skills and jobs event are DOLE, Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA), Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) and National Reintegration Center for OFWs (NRCO).

Select technical-vocational institutions and enterprise partners are also joining the event to accept Pangulong Gloria scholars in their registered programs. (TESDA-10) [top]
