PIA Press Release

Diasen tells grads to hone skills

by GG Dumallig

Tabuk City (24 October) -- Kalinga Governor Floydelia R. Diasen urged the 22 new Sewing Crafts and Skills Scholarship program graduates of the provincial government to use what they have learned to earn and to strive harder to upgrade their skills to acquire a more gainful employment.

In her message, Diasen said that as scholars of the provincial government, the graduates should make use of their newfound skills to help the province through sharing what they have learned to find work.

"With your skill, you are now provided with the opportunity to earn, thus you should no longer be included in the list of unemployed in the province, but as one earning and taxpaying constituent," she said.

In finding better and higher paying jobs, she encouraged them to undergo the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) assessment test to earn a National Certificate to qualify for work in local companies and abroad.

"Strive harder to pursue a higher learning," she said.

The three-month long free training was conducted at the Productivity Skills Capability Building (PSCB) of the Provincial Social Welfare and Development Office (PSWDO).

According to PSWD Officer Digna Dalutag, the PSCB is already able to produce a total of 95 sewing craft graduates since 2008.

Said program she said caters to the unemployed women. The course does not only provide crafts and skills training but the group has also undergone Self Enhancement Skills Development to help them maximize their capabilities and competence.

"As women, they were also taught to be role models, develop self-esteem, build their self confidence and taught how to care for themselves," she said. (PIA Kalinga) [top]
