ANGELES CITY, Pampanga, Jan. 29 (PIA) -- The ongoing construction of the City College of Angeles (CCA) here will supply the demand for workers in Clark Freeport Zone (CFZ).
To operate in time for the coming school year in June, the P320-million city college will correspond to the 3,000 prospective employees needed inside CFZ, as well as the emerging enterprises in this city, said Edu Pamintuan, chairman of the committee on education of the Sangguniang Panglungsod.
To be offered are courses on communication skills, English proficiency and Information Technology (IT), which are all market-responsive.
The education center will be a two-floor building with 43 classrooms, a covered court and gymnasium. This will house 4,000 students once fully operational.
Also, “CCA will provide Angeleños free college education, especially to indigent people,” Pamintuan explained.
Mayor Edgardo Pamintuan said, “As education being the top priority of the city government, efforts are focused in advancing and furthering not only the management of our education system, but also in providing access to our people of the opportunities to quality education.”
CFZ is situated on the northwest side of Angeles City and borders the municipality of Mabalacat in this province.
