PIA Press Release

TESDA Abra to construct a dormitory in Pidigan

by Maritess Beņas

PIDIGAN, Abra (6 October) -- The Technical Education and Skills Authority in Abra (TESDA-Abra) based in this town will soon construct a dormitory for its students coming from far flung municipalities.

In an interview with Provincial Director Conrado E. Maraan, he bared that Provincial Governor Eustaquio P. Bersamin had already released the P1.5 million for the project.

The dormitory is a support component of the expansion of the Provincial Training Center in Pidigan where the PGMA Training for Work Scholarship Program is continuing.

Relative to this, TESDA-Abra had awarded a total of 760 scholarship grants to the Abreņos in a simple ceremony held at the Provincial Captiol Social Hall last September 27.

Courses offered and covered by the TESDA scholarship program are Caregiver, Computer Operator, Hotel and Restaurant Management and the ladderized Bachelor of Science in Information Technology.

Abreņos have been given preferential attention last year in terms of the scholarship program. The province got a 35% share from the total budget for scholarship of the TESDA-CAR or P7M out of the P19M total budget. Bersamin had expressed his gratitude for this development

Maraan encouraged the Abreņos to enroll in other courses which are even higher-paying and has a higher employment rate here and abroad particularly that of welding and heavy equipment operator because most of the students are enrolled in caregiver and computer operator.

While passing the competency standards of TESDA is a requisite for employment especially in skills-laden courses, Maraan stressed to the student-scholars the need to improve their work attitudes if they want to be employed. Skills and knowledge are not enough guarantee that they will get employed even if they graduate scholars.

Meanwhile, TESDA is still awaiting the final response of Representative Cecilia S. Luna regarding their request for an office in the provincial capital, which the congresswoman has approved in principle during their initial meeting. (PIA-Abra) [top]
